Press Release

Charlotte, North Carolina – Latin American Contemporary Art (LaCa) Projects is pleased to present In Focus/Enfoque: Contemporary Photography in Mexico.

Karina Juárez, Alejandra Laviada, and Humberto Ríos, an award-winning trio of contemporary photographers, present powerful works in the gallery’s first-ever photography exhibition. The photographs present varying themes and images, ranging from identity and personal loss to metaphorical and autobiographical elements. They also create striking visual narratives taken from the personal experiences of the artists, as well as from conceptual ideas and practices. All three artists have been featured in significant international solo and collective exhibitions. 

This exhibition is also part of a broader, ambitious, multi-institution collaboration featuring contemporary Mexican photography, which runs in Charlotte from August 2017 through spring 2018. Inspired by the highly anticipated "Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA", this unique collaboration, which includes LaCa Projects, The Light Factory, The Mint Museum, The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, The McColl Center for Art + Innovation, SOCO Gallery, and the New Gallery of Modern Art, will exhibit through their exhibitions more than 50 artists from Mexico and the United States. 

As an exploration of diverse topics and themes—including design, gender, activism, identity, globalism, and borders—In Focus/Enfoque will showcase a wide variety of contemporary art in dialogue with the Queen City. As a major supporter of arts and culture across the region, Bank of America led the planning, collaboration, and funding of In Focus/Enfoque.

An opening reception with the artists will take place on Thursday, September 14 from 6-10 PM at LaCa Projects.
