Tiempo de Danzon (Dance Time), an exhibition of photographs by Cristina Kahlo, opened on February 1, 2013, at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Miami.
Cristina Kahlo is the grand-niece of Mexico’s most famous female painter, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). She has earned renown as an insightful photographer, capturing architecture, portraits, and images of Mexican culture. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Mexico, the United States, France, Germany, and Switzerland.
Tiempo de Danzon pays homage to all who share her passion for dance and converts it into a ritual based on discipline, love, and proper care of the costumes that dancers wear. She has a particular fascination with her subjects’ shoes and hats.
The Mexican Cultural Institute is at 1399 SW 1st Ave., Miami, FL 33130. The Mexican consulate occupies most of the building; the cultural institute is on the third floor. You can visit the exhibition from 9 AM to 6 PM (except during the 2 PM to 3 PM lunch hour) on weekdays through March 1.
