The Car Poolers: Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Edmund A. Walsh Memorial, Spagnuolo Art Gallery 1221 36th St., N.W., Washington

"The Car Poolers" is part of a larger body of work entitled “Suburbia Mexicana" which considers the interdependence of humans and landscape in the face of urban expansion. With a bird’s eye view over the trucks commuting to and from work, Cartagena captures images of laborers carpooling in the back of pickup trucks. The photos portray the resilience of humanity, and an intimate look at men trying to survive.

Join us for a talk by the artist on Monday, February 24 from 6:00-7:00 PM in Walsh 398.

This exhibition is graciously co-sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and the Mexican Cultural Institute.
