“Venegas and Venegas” presents the artist’s work in New York City for the first time. Photos from three of her best-known series will be on view: “Las Novias Más Hermosas de Baja California”, “María Elvia de Hank” and “San Pedro, Garza García”, her most recent body of work.
This selection of photographs will be in direct dialogue with the photographs of Yvonne’s father, José Luis Venegas—one of Tijuana’s first middle/upper-class wedding photographers. Although Yvonne followed his footsteps, her visual language captures moments of carelessness and weakness of a social class loaded with norms and customs that fight to maintain a coherent image.
