Torrijos: The Man and The Myth, Photographs by Graciela Iturbide

Exhibition: April 7 - June 1, 2009
Exhibition Lecture: 4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 22

The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Torrijos: The Man and The Myth, Photographs by Graciela Iturbide from April 7 through June 1, an exhibition of previously unviewed photographs of Graciela Iturbide, one of Mexico's most celebrated photographers. The photographs celebrate the figure of General Omar Torrijos, Panama's leader from 1968 through 1981 and one of the best-known Latin American figures of the 20th century. Iturbide explores, in an intensely personal homage, an era through the persona of a single man whose changing role in history was emblematic of the times. She establishes both place and identity not only of her distinguished subject, but also the context of country and the land itself, in aesthetic and vernacular style alike.

A public reception, to be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 4:00 pm, will feature lecture presentations on Latin American cultures.

The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 12 noon to 4:30 pm, on Thursday until 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1 - 5 pm. Admission is free. For more information call 410-455-2270.
