PHOTO EXHIBITION OPENS AT ART MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAS
"Portraits of Frida and Other Utopias," an exhibition of black-and-white photographs by Colombian artist Leo Matiz, was opened December 7 at the Art Museum of the Americas.
Matiz, who died in 1998 at the age of 81, spent six decades documenting the people, landscapes, events and idiosyncracies of Latin America. In the 1940s, while living in Mexico, he earned international recognition with his striking photographs of such famous people as Agustín Lara, Luis Buñuel, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition, which runs through March 4, 2001, is a collaborative project between the Art Museum of the Americas and the Leo Matiz Foundation.
