A Nation Emerges: The Mexican Revolution Revealed– Sept. 8, 2011–June 3, 2012.
The Mexican Revolution (1910–20), which lasted a decade and transformed the nation, was extensively chronicled by Mexican, American, and European photographers and illustrators. Thousands of images captured a country at war. From postcards of the 1910 Fiesta del Centenario, to images of a war that was waged on several fronts by ever-shifting revolutionary factions, to photographs of the 1923 assassination of Pancho Villa, this exhibition chronicles this complex, multifaceted chapter in Mexico’s history.Organized by the Getty Research Institute with support from Edison International.
