NYU’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center Hosts Exhibition
An exhibition of photographs by Maya Goded entitled “The Neighborhood of Solitude: Prostitutes of Mexico City” will be on display through April 23 in the lobby of New York University’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, located at 53 Washington Square South. Gallery hours are 9 a.m - 10 p.m., Monday through Friday. For further information, call 212.998.3650 or log on to www.nyu.edu/kjc.
Born in Mexico City, Maya Goded has had her work exhibited in numerous venues including the Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey Museum in Mexico; the European Festival for the Arts, Brussels; Rotterdam Museum of Art; The Women’s Museum of Denmark; Foto Fest, Houston, Texas; and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain.
About these photographs Goded says: “I wanted to engage in a work that would allow me to go deep into the roots of inequality, transgression, our body, sex, virginity, maternity, childhood and old age, desire and those things we lack. I wanted to talk about love and the lack of love. I wanted to know about women. I photographed prostitutes.”
Goded will take part in a seminar, with other photographers, on Spanish and Latin American photography on Saturday, April 23, at the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.
