Guest curators Rachael Arauz and Adriana Zavala will discuss the development of the exhibition and the ways in which, together, the CCP Archive and the González Rendón Archive of Lola’s work enrich what we know about the career of this great photographer. (See video at Arizona's Public Media's Arizona Connection.)

The gallery will be open for an exclusive exhibition preview from 4:30 to 5:30pm before the lecture.
