Museum of Latin American Art Shows Latin American Photography (1990-2005)
Gabriel Orozco (Mexico, b. 1962), "Waiting Room" (Sala de espera), 1998. C-print, 16 x 20 inches. Gary and Tracy Mezzatesta Collection, Los Angeles.
LONG BEACH, CA.- Curated and organized by MOLAA, "Changing the Focus: Latin American Photography (1990-2005)" is the first survey exhibition to be presented in the Los Angeles area of Latin American photography and photo-based art generated between 1990 and 2005. Organized around four themes of investigation—Subliminal Structures, Embodied Identities, Staged Irony and The Individual & Social Violence—the exhibition explores the artist’s personally-charged response to local and global issues grounded in the contemporary Latin American experience. Over 75 works created by 35 artists from the four regions of Latin America (Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean) range from traditional photography, to manipulated digital photography, installations, light-boxes and photo-based art. The broad experimentation of the art forms play with the viewers imagination and challenge stereotypical norms.

Selected artists include: Alexander Apóstol, Alexandre Arrechea, Jaime Ávila, Aziz+Cucher, Mario Cravo Neto, Milagros de la Torre, Juan Manuel Echavarría, Daniela Edburg, Carlos Garaicoa, Nelson Garrido, Luis González Palma, Alfredo Jaar, Jonathan Harker, Natalia Iguiñez, Marcos López, Teresa Margolles, Luis Molina Pantin, Ronald Morán, Vik Muniz, Oscar Muñoz, Gabriel Orozco, Rubén Ortiz Torres, Tatiana Parcero, Marta María Pérez Bravo, Manuel Piña, Liliana Porter, Rosangela Renno, Miguel Río Branco, Daniela Rosell, Graciela Sacco, Melanie Smith, Gerardo Suter, Víctor Vázquez, among others
