On Saturday, November 24th at 7PM, the photographic exhibit "¡Mexicano Lindo y Querido! The life and work of Mexican film icon Jorge Negrete (1911-1953)", will open with a reception at the Mexican Cultural Institute, where it will be open to the public until Saturday, December 8th.
This photographic exhibit commemorates the close of Negrete's birth-centennial celebration by presenting a range of images that showcase the actor's iconic work in Mexican cinema, his lead in establishing Mexico's Actors Guild Association, on to the last glimpses of Negrete alive upon his arrival at Los Angeles Airport before his unexpected death on the eve of his debut at The Million Dollar Theater.
¡Mexicano Lindo y Querido! is curated and produced by the Cervantes Center of Arts and Letters and presented in collaboration with The Mexican Cultural Institute of Los Angeles.
