Larry Fink Panama Exhibition. From Thursday, September 8, until Friday, November 4, The Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC) will have on show the exhibition, “An American Life”, by acclaimed American photographer, Larry Fink. This exhibition is part of the celebration and activities for “FotoSeptiembre”, the month of photography in Panama.
“FotoSeptiembre” comprises a cycle of exhibitions and activities related to photography and audiovisual art in several cultural sites of the city. This year’s “FotoSeptiembre” theme is titled “One photograph one question”.
Larry Fink is a New York photographer known for his black and white pictures of people at parties and in other social situations. One of his best-known works is the “Social Grace” series, a set of photographs that he produced in the 1970s that depicted and contrasted wealthy Manhattanites at fashionable clubs and social events alongside working-class people from rural Pennsylvania colliding and participating in events such as high school graduations.
Fink’s exhibition, “An American Life” consists of a collection of 77 photographs that take the audience on a journey from his beginnings as a rebellious teenager with a passion for music and boxing; through the intimate moments of his neighbors in rural Pennsylvania and even to glamorous private parties of the New York elite. This selection was curated by Marcello Marvelli, director of the Marvelli Fine Arts Gallery in Chelsea, New York.
FotoSeptiembre also features workshops, lectures and other photographic exhibitions such as the Ricardo Lopez Arias exhibition at the Cultural Center of Spain – “Casa del Soldado” – and the exhibition “Cuba: after the caravan of freedom” by Cuban photographer Venancio Diaz Maique at Casasola.
Larry Fink’s exhibition will be accompanied by a varied educational program with workshops and activities such as dialogues, tours and family and school workshops. The Museum of Contemporary Art is open from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission fee is $3 for the general public.
