A Nation Emerges: The Mexican Revolution Revealed
At the Central Library, 630 W. Fifth St.
September 8, 2011–June 3, 2012

The Mexican Revolution (1910–1920), which lasted a decade and transformed the nation, was extensively chronicled by Mexican, American, and European photographers and illustrators. Thousands of images captured a country at war. Never before, and possibly never since, has a country been the subject of such scrutiny or fascination. From postcards of the 1910 Fiesta del Centenario, to images of a war that was waged on several fronts by evershifting revolutionary factions, to photographs of the 1923 assassination of the retired Pancho Villa, A Nation Emerges: The Mexican Revolution Revealed chronicles this complex, multifaceted chapter in Mexico's history.
