Centro de la Imagen – Mexico City

At the Calle Balderas entrance is the Centro de la Imagen, the city’s photography museum. This innovatively designed space stages compelling exhibitions, often focusing on documentary views of Mexican life.

Created by the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (The National Council for Culture and Arts) in 1994, the Centro de la Imagen is a space dedicated to investigation, formation, analysis and dissemination of both photography and image, among diverse publics. The CI has spread out its activity based in an interdisciplinary model which includes: editorial, education, research and a field related to activities in museums, it also includes two special projects: the Photography Biennial and the Mexico Photo Festival, and also a monographic publication: the book- magazine Luna Córnea.
The centre is under the direction of Itala Schmelz.
