Symposium and Exhibition in Mexico City in Memory of Professor Andrea Noble

The Centro de la Imagen in Mexico City in collaboration with Durham University and Mexico’s Secretariat of Culture announces an exhibition and a symposium to honour the legacy of Andrea Noble (1968-2017), Professor at Durham University until her death in Mexico in May 2017. The two-day Symposium at the Centro de la Imagen will take place on 26-27 September 2018 and it will include presentations by Mexican academics, curators and art critics from the UNAM, the INAH and the Universidad Iberoamericana, as well as scholars from the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (Chile) and CUNY (USA).

The exhibition opens on October 25th at 7PM and it will showcase work by young photographers from Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and Spain. The work was produced as part of the AHRC-funded project ‘Fotofría’, led by Professor Noble. The project was designed as a collaboration between academic and cultural institutions dedicated to the preservation and promotion of memory of the conflict in lesser known sites of Cold War. Additional funding was provided by Santander.
