Featuring the work of over seventy photographers and artists, Urban Impulses embraces half a century of Latin American photography, from 1959 to 2016. Through more than two hundred images and includes well-known names such as Alberto Korda (Cuba), Graciela Iturbide (Mexico) and Sergio Larrain (Chile). The exhibition is curated into two distinct but complementary themes: Shouts and Pop-ular. Shouts considers photography’s role not only in documenting identities and presences, but also to explore absences. In Pop-ular, artists mine the tropes of mass media and their manifestation in public spaces, particularly through the richness of pop culture imagery, often associated with commerce and advertising, marks the visual identity of the Latin American metropolis.
