Join us for an evening with Sebastião Salgado & Lélia Wanick Salgado
Thursday, June 1, 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

The Museum of Photographic Arts is proud to welcome Sebastião Salgado and Lélia Wanick Salgado for a special conversation to discuss their partnership and the power of the work it’s produced. The discussion will be moderated by MOPA’s Executive Director, Deborah Klochko.

Sebastião and Lélia spent ten years creating GENESIS, journeying to the places beyond the touch of modern life to bare witness to the fragility of our planet. Curated by Lélia, each photograph in the collection is a stark and powerful reminder of humanity’s footprint. It is also a testament to the might of Sebastião and Lélia’s partnership.

Tickets: $10 MOPA Members | $25 General Price

Space is Limited

GENESIS will be on display May 24, 2017 through September 30, 2017.

"GENESIS is a quest for the world as it was, as it was formed, as it evolved, as it existed for millennia before modern life accelerated and began distancing us from the very essence of our being. It is a journey to the landscapes, seascapes, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the long reach of today’s world. And it is testimony that our planet still harbours vast and remote regions where nature reigns in silent and pristine majesty." – Lélia Wanick Salgado, Curator-

Major exhibition support provided by Bank of the West, City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, Coldwell Banker | Serafini Buettner Group and the Gardner Bilingual Fund.
