Exhibit: ‘Possible Worlds’

Recent news from Mexico makes it seem as if the entire country is on the verge of collapse, what with cartels running amok and police and military personnel defecting and seeking asylum in the U.S. But beneath the news reports is another story. The Mexican economy is prevailing, and undocumented workers in the U.S. are heading home to find jobs. There is also a blooming art movement composed of photographers drawn to capturing realities that aren’t, but could be. “Influenced by film, literature, fantasy, science fiction, electronic music, they delve into alternative worlds as conceived by the human mind,” is how the Art Museum of the Americas describes the exhibit. “These works speak to avenues of the imagination, rather than serving as documentation of the natural world.”

Through Sunday at the Art Museum of the Americas, 201 18th St. NW.
