Co-organized by Dr. Camilla Sutherland and Dr. Bob de Jonge, the exhibition Mariana Yampolsky: Photographer of 20th Century Mexico is on display at the University Museum Groningen until the end of September.

Supported by funds awarded by the Embassy of Mexico in the Netherlands, ICOG, and a Faculty Impact Grant, the exhibition opened in June 2023. The inaugural event including words from Rector Cisca Wijmenga, Vice-Dean Joost Keizers, the Mexican Ambassador José Antonio Zabalgoitia, and a lecture by María De Mária Campos of the Yampolsky Archive, Universidad Iberoamericana. Following a tour of the exhibition, guests enjoyed a drinks reception accompanied by traditional Mexican music.

Yampolsky’s photographs offer a unique insight into Mexican society of the mid-20th century. While firmly rooted in the Mexican context, her works capture universal themes that speak to us across cultures and are still strikingly relevant to our present time. This exhibition showcases and promotes Yampolsky’s work as a pioneering woman photographer.

We hope that many of you will visit the exhibition this coming month!
