!VIVA LA CÁMARA! Panel Discussion & Opening Reception
Photographs of the Mexican Revolution from the Gustavo Casasola Foundation
Please join us for a discussion about the crucial role photography played in the 1910–1920 Mexican Revolution, followed by the opening reception for an exhibition in Doheny Library, drawn from the Gustavo Casasola Foundation in Mexico and the USC Libraries Boeckmann Center Collection. Photojournalist Gustavo Casasola, UCLA professor Maarten Van Delden, and USC professor Liana Stepanyan will explore the causes of the decade-long upheaval, the local photographers—including many members of the Casasola family—who followed the unfolding events, and how the revolution continues to shape the country’s identity. The exhibition will be on view through December 16, 2015.
Panel discussion: 4:00 p.m. in the Friends Lecture Hall (Room 240)
Exhibition reception: 5:00 p.m. in the Ground Floor Rotunda
Free and open to the public.
