In this panel, three members of the younger generation of artists in the exhibition — Cartagena, Lopez Luz, and Rossell — each explore, in different ways, contemporary issues related to the environment, urbanism, social class, and more. Join us as they discuss their work and consider whether it is still important to locate their photographic practice in relation to the tradition of photography in Mexico.
