Imágenes en Voz Alta
A reading room that features display of several dozen political posters by contemporary Mexican and international graphic designers from the collective Imágenes en Voz Alta, along with an ongoing screening of selections from historic Mexican cinema, and texts chosen by artists whose works were included in Between Words and Silence: The Work of Translation/Entre palabras y silencio: La tarea de la traducción, on view from January 29 through April 2, 2017 in the Armory’s Mezzanine Galleries. Imágenes en Voz Alta is a not-for-profit, web-based, citizen initiative founded in Mexico City that is unsponsored and without political affiliation. Its objective is to promote freedom of expression, condemn censorship and violence, and generate a graphic memory of ongoing events throughout Mexico. It is a bank of royalty-free images that have been donated by both Mexican and international designers, illustrators, photographers, and artists. Funding for this exhibition is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
