Culture on Camera: Exhibit Opening with the Moab Valley Multicultural Center
Join the Moab Valley Multicultural Center (MVMC) at the Moab Museum on March 8, 2022 at 6:30pm for an exhibit opening and celebration of Culture on Camera.
The photojournalism of Agustín Victor Casasola and the portrait photography Nickolas Muray both capture important subjects in Mexico’s history: the Mexican Revolution and Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, respectively. While the photographic styles and subjects vary significantly, both bodies of work invite viewers deep into stories and people of the past- portraying history, conveying culture, and inviting questions for viewers today.
This exhibition has been created by the Moab Valley Multicultural Center, whose mission is to build bridges across language and culture through family support, community collaboration and education. Much like the MVMC, photographs build bridges across language and culture- and this temporary exhibition invites attendees to explore the power of photographic media in history, while learning about important chapters and figures of Mexico’s past.
This free reception at 6:30pm is open to the public. This exhibit is made possible thanks to loaned exhibit materials from Artes de Mexico en Utah and photographs by Nickolas Muray are exhibited courtesy of Nickolas Muray Photo Archives, and Chris Muray & Mimi Muray Levitt.
