Graciela Iturbide:Echoes and Sediments
20.10 – 13.11.2021
Huxley-Parlour are pleased to present an exhibition of works by Mexican photographer, Graciela Iturbide. It will be Iturbide’s first UK exhibition since her 2013 retrospective at the Tate Modern.
The title of the exhibition comes from Mexican writer Carlos Monsiváis, who once described Iturbide’s photography as an art of ‘echoes and sediments’. Here, he references her ability to photograph at the intersection of surrealism, abstraction, documentary photography, and the social themes of urbanisation and globalisation.
Iturbide’s works are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, among others. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Hasselblad Foundation Photography Award. In 2021, Iturbide was awarded the Sony World Photography Award for Outstanding Contribution to Photography.
