ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
AMA ׀ Art Museum of the Americas in collaboration with the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, D.C., announces the opening of Possible Worlds: Mexican Photography and Fiction in Contemporary Art, an exhibition of contemporary photography from Mexico.
The artists of Possible Worlds are part of a new generation of photographers that breaks away from the tradition of photojournalism, archetypes and traditional models. Influenced by film, literature, fantasy, science fiction, electronic music, they delve into alternative worlds as conceived by the human mind. These works speak to avenues of the imagination, rather than serving as documentation of the natural world, revealing worlds that are birthed internally and then given permanence in these photographs.
