Lecture: The Photographic Self-Portraits of Martin Chambi

Tuesday, March 3, 2015,

Museum William D. Adams Gallery, Museum Lobby

Celia Rubina Vargas, professor of semiotics at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, will give a lecture on Martín Chambi (1891-1973), a Latin American photographer from a peasant family in the highlands of Peru. Chambi developed his photographic art in the city of Cuzco. Extremely successful as a professional photographer, his images offer a historical glimpse into a complex changing society. As a point of reference in the Andean World, Chambi’s photography reveals the shifting nature of artistic identity in a Latin American context.

This event is cosponsored by the Spanish and Latin American Studies Departments.
