And…the November MBC photographic exhibition:
“The Frida Files” by LEO MATIZ

Leo Matiz (1917-1998) was born in Aracateca, Colombia, but was known internationally as a “citizen of the world”. The intense and stark compositional beauty of his photographs are world famous, particularly in some of the iconic portraits of our time, and especially in his immortal legendary portraits of Frida Kahlo. Matiz was a master at depicting the internal passions of his subjects, with graphic grace and sharp contrasting
elements defining their features. Like Sergei Eisenstein’s gorgeously photographed film Que Viva Mexico! (which screens November 30th as a companion piece and closing night event to this MBC exhibition, and is accompanied by the modernist electronic music of DJ Maximus 3000), the images of Leo Matiz capture history told through faces. These images are on display courtesy of Alejandra Matiz, the artist’s daughter, who will be a special guest on closing night. The photographs are also for sale.
