From the 19th of January till the 12 May 2019, the photographer Graciela Iturbide will be celebrated with a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition is entitled ‘Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico’ and will include 37 photographs shot between 1969 and 2007. Her work dismantles stereotypical representations of Mexico often taken by foreign photographer who are often attracted by staging a certain of exoticism. Her photographs depict a multilayered country with a multitude of political, socio-economic and cultural intersections and tensions. Her work also dismantles certain representations of Mexican women, giving it a more complex understanding of this identity category. The exhibition comes at a highly politicized time, where Trump has been accused of stirring up anti-Mexican hatred. One-dimensional depictions of Mexico run rampant and this why Graciela Iturbide’s exhibition stands as a powerful sign of resistance.
