Candida Höfer in Mexico

October 6, 2018 - January 6, 2019

For decades photographer Candida Höfer (German, born 1944) has made “portraits” of iconic buildings around the world, including the Louvre in Paris, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, La Scala in Milan, Villa Borghese in Rome, and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Höfer’s technical mastery of composition, light, and symmetry offers viewers a glimpse beneath the surface, toward the heart and character of each place, in visually stunning, monumentally scaled photographs of the world’s great architecture.

In 2015 Höfer turned her camera, and her interest, toward Mexico. This exhibition features 25 large-format photographs of magnificent interiors of libraries, convents, theaters, churches, and museums throughout Mexico. For Höfer these structures encapsulate the essence of Mexican culture, covering an impressive timeline of 600 years from the 16th century to the 21st.
