press release

Chicago –– The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) is pleased to announce the exhibition La Frontera, curated by MoCP Director Rod Slemmons, opening in October 2010.

The idea for this exhibition originated when MoCP Director Rod Slemmons served as a member of the Mexican Community Roundtable of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. He realized that there were many layers and generations of migration and immigration present at the table, all with varying agendas and degrees of mutual understanding and tolerance. He felt that these multiple viewpoints were quite different from the simple, commonly held notions of immigration promulgated by the news media in the U.S.
