After World War II, the American road trip began appearing prominently in literature, music, movies, and photography. While the myth of the American frontier had long engaged artists, and key photographers such as Walker Evans and Edward Weston made seminal trips through America in the 1930s and 1940s, many more photographers purposefully embarked on trips during the post-World War II era in order to create work about America or better understand their place in it.

The Blanton’s Perspectives Lecture Series: Peruvian Photography Panel

Thu, 05/19/2016 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Curator Beverly Adams will moderate a discussion among three artists featured in Fixing Shadows: Luz María Bedoya (Lima), Fernando Castro (Houston), and Pablo Hare (Lima). The artists will reflect on the lasting influence of Lima's groundbreaking Secuencia Photo-Galería (1976–79), their experiences as photographers in Lima during Peru's internal conflict in the 1980s and 1990s, and their ongoing work in photography and interdisciplinary art today.
