CADVC, the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, and the InterArts Series present Trisha Ziff, a British born curator, photographer and filmmaker who currently lives in Mexico City and whose work explores cultural hybridism. She will screen and discuss her documentary film Chevolution (90 min.), based on her international exhibition and book Che: Revolution and Commerce, published in Spanish, Italian and English. Chevolution looks at the famous image of Che Guevara and tells the story of what may be the most reproduced image in the history of photography.
Trisha Ziff's major international curatorial projects include Mary Kelly's Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi, Hidden Truths Bloody Sunday and Distant Relations, a dialogue between Irish, Mexican and Chicano artists (1996). Her recent film productions include Oaxacalifornia (US/UK, 1996), My Mexican Shiva (Mexico, 2007) and Nine Months 9 Days (Mexico, 2010). She is also the director of the film La Maleta Mexicana and in 2006 founded 212BERLIN, a space dedicated to the image in Mexico City. She is currently working on a film Between Dog and Wolf (Mexico), while developing major exhibition for the 70th anniversary of the end of the Spanish Civil War (Mexico/Spain). Trisha Ziff has received many accolades, including a Bancomer Foundation award and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
