Opening Reception

Thursday, March 23, 2006, 7pm


Currently on tour in Mexico at the Centro de la Imagen the exhibition focuses on the portrait of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Guerrillo Heroico, photographed by Alberto Díaz Korda on March 5, 1960, is considered to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography. It has come to symbolize anti-establishment thought and action. Its political power has maintained its currency from 1968 to the present conflicts in the Middle East. It has reverberated from the cold war to our post-colonial reality. It is an image which has inspired sophisticated art yet its iconic silhouette is immediately recognizable.
