Exhibition:
"The Nicaragua Media Project"
Date
September 16 - December 8 1984
Description

"The image of Nicaragua, as presented in the media, is shown,
along with alternative views by independent photojournalists and documentary photographers, in the Museum's WorkSpace Gallery. The exhibition surveys the dominant themes and images through which Nicaragua has been presented in the most influential American newspapers and news magazines since the Sandanista Revolution in 1979. In addition, the process of editing news photography is examined, ranging from the contact sheet to the printed page, where new associations are created by accompanying text, captions, and graphic design. Represented are photographers from the United States, Canada, The Netherlands, France, West Germany, Mexico, Cuba, Chile, and Nicaragua."
