Told and Untold: The Photo Stories of Kati Horna in the Illustrated Press at the AS/COA

For several decades Kati Horna (née Katalin Deutsch, Budapest, 1912–Mexico City, 2000) photographed a cross-section of Mexico’s cultural life. As the first solo show dedicated to the photographer in the United States, Told and Untold will feature Horna’s photographs displayed alongside the newspapers and magazines that put them in circulation. Through the display of photographs, contact sheets, montage cuttings, periodicals, and personal albums of her work, the show will give viewers the chance to understand Horna as a female artist who thrived in collaborative environments—or, as she preferred to call herself, una obrera del arte (an art worker).

Curated by Michel Otayek and Christina De León
