Fall Exhibitions
In the past 49 years, El Museo has played a unique role in showcasing some of the most talented Latino/a and Latin American artists in the United States and we are thrilled to re-open our galleries with two extraordinary exhibitions. Our main gallery will feature Liliana Porter: Other Situations, in partnership with the SCAD Museum of Art, a nonlinear survey of Porter´s last five decades of artistic evolution, and the fifth in El Museo del Barrio’s annual series of women-artist retrospectives. The Unanue Permanent Collection Galleries will feature, Down These Mean Streets: Community and Place in Urban Photography, in partnership with the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM), a group exhibition that examines how Latino photographers depicted America’s urban streets when notions of the inner city began to emerge. Significantly, a selection of these photographs are images of El Museo’s neighborhood of East Harlem, and coincide with an early moment in our institution’s history.

With this in mind, El Museo will present a dynamic selection of curatorial programming partnerships in order to bring a wider visibility to these exhibitions and to continue this important dialogue around community, gender, and place making in the arts.

I have enclosed further details about our upcoming programs for your review. As a dedicated supporter of the arts, I hope that you will consider making a gift in support of these programs. Gifts of $2,500 or more will be recognized on all affiliated Communication materials.
