IMAS is excited to announce the arrival of its newest exhibit, “Heresies,” by Mexican photographer, Pedro Meyer on Thursday, May 14.
The exhibit is a continuation of IMAS’ International Exhibits Exchange Program as organized by IMAS Curator, Maria Elena Macias. Generously sponsored by the Mexican Consulate, the photographic works from “Heresies” are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Tamaulipas (MACT).
Meyer is as renowned for his powerful and provocative photographs as he is for his pioneering work with digital imaging. Meyer’s photographs consistently test the limits of truth, fiction and reality and with the advent of digital photography in the early 1990s, Meyer evolved from a documentary photographer into a digital-documentarian who often combines photographic elements from disparate times and places to arrive at a different or higher truth.
“Heresies” will be on display at IMAS from May 14 through Sept. 28. The opening reception, hosted by the Mexican Consulate, will be held on Thursday, June 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibit and reception will be free of charge to members of IMAS and included in general admission for non-members.
