Manual Carrillo Mi Querido México

Museum of Latin American Art

628 Alamitos Ave., Long Beach, CA

11:00am

Manuel Carrillo was born in Mexico City in 1906. His photographic work serves as an important social documentation and interpretation of Mexican Culture from the positioning of post-Revolutionary Mexico searching for its own identity. Carrillo's poetic interpretations emphasized his preoccupation with man's relationship to nature. This insight reveals his classical style as a modernist in search of a unified, National Mexican identity.

Through November 30, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Fridays 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
