Rooftop TV presents live encounters with contemporary artists and thinkers who represent a range of critical and artistic perspectives. This Rooftop TV conversation is the second installment in a two-part exploration of visual culture and Mexican identity. Following the "Mexican Fugue" panel held at SFMOMA on April 12, 2012, we bring together, around a table in the museum's Rooftop Garden, critics and historians María Inés Canal, Tarek Elhaik, Jesse Lerner, and Rogelio Villarreal, and link them via Skype to three artists featured in the exhibition Photography in Mexico.
Alejandro Cartagena, Pablo López Luz, and Daniela Rossell belong to a new generation of photographers whose work, in different ways, investigates the social and political landscape of contemporary Mexico. In this conversation moderated by Dominic Willsdon, the participants share their thoughts and respond to questions and comments submitted via email or Twitter.
