Opening: Jonathan Herrera Soto, “In Between / Underneath”

Join us for the opening reception of Jonathan Herrera Soto’s exhibition “In Between / Underneath (Entremedio / Por Debjo).”

From 6 to 7 pm, there will be a short reception where visitors are encouraged to engage with Jonathan’s work.

From 7 to 8 pm, journalist Steve Fisher will talk about the importance of freedom of the press—in the United States and Mexico. Fisher has done in-depth reporting on human rights in Mexico, most notably on the mass kidnapping of 43 students in the city of Iguala in 2014 and the subsequent arrest of 22 municipal police officers. Following the talk, Fisher and Herrera Soto will open up the floor for a Q&A and conversation with the audience.

Steve Fisher is a freelance investigative print reporter/documentary producer based in Mexico City. He has written for the Washington PostL.A. Times, Mother Jones Magazine, National GeographicHuffington Post, Newsweek, Proceso Magazine, and Telemundo among other outlets. Fisher was previously a fellow of the Investigative Reporting Program at University of California, Berkeley.
