Argentine photo, poetry exhibit in Wilmington March 1-31

4:02 p.m., Feb. 16, 2004--“A Tale of Two Cities: Buenos Aires,” an exhibition of Argentine poetry and photography, will be on display in the Latin American Community Center, at 403 North Van Buren St., in Wilmington, from Monday, March 1, through Wednesday, March 31.

The exhibition, which showcases the photographs of Argentine photojournalist Silvina M. Frydlewsky, will be complemented by a presentation at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 4, by exhibition curators Gladys Ilarregui and Priscilla Smith of the University of Delaware. Titled “Experiencing the Argentine Crisis through Poetry and Photography,” the joint presentation will be followed by live tango music and ethnic refreshments. In addition, the exhibit will be part of Wilmington’s “Art on the Town” art loop, from 5:30-8 p.m., Friday, March 5.

Native Argentine Frydlewsky directs the photography department at the weekly Buenos Aires magazine La Primera and is a photographic correspondent for The Washington Post and several Latin American publications. Her photographs capture the devastating effects of economic collapse on Argentine society and the beauty of Buenos Aires. In addition to her photojournalism pursuits, Frydlewsky also teaches at the Andy Goldstein School of Creative Photography in Buenos Aires.

Show curators Gladys Ilarregui and Priscilla Smith serve as assistant professor of foreign languages and literatures and associate professor of art, respectively, at the University of Delaware. The show was organized by Cynthia Schmidt-Cruz, associate professor of foreign languages and literatures, and UD's Latin American Studies program.

The exhibit debuted on UD’s Newark campus last fall, and then was exhibited on the Georgetown campus.

The program is made possible, in part, by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Delaware Division of the Arts and the Delaware Humanities Forum. Sponsors also include the Embassy of Argentina; the Office of Education and Science, Embassy of Spain; and the University of Delaware Center for International Studies, the College of Arts and Sciences, and numerous campus units.

Both the exhibit and the March 4 presentation are free and open to the public. For more information, including directions and hours of operation, call the Latin American Community Center at 655-7338.
