The iconic photograph by Alberto Korda of Che Guevara, which for more than fifty years has retained its iconic status as a universal symbol of popular, anti-establishment uprising and revolution, is now back in the news with the stunning changes and transformations now taking place in the Middle East and North Africa. To mark its reappearance and continued power, Culver Center of the Arts is pleased to re-present aspects of the exhibition, Che! Revolution and Commerce that premiered at UCR/California Museum six years ago and has now returned from a tour of ten major venues in seven countries around the world.
Che! Revolution and Commerce is one of the most successful university museum exhibitions ever produced. It now returns to Riverside in April as Che! Redux, after being seen by tens of thousands of people around the world. The exhibition, which was organized by Jonathan Green at UCR/California Museum of Photography in collaboration with independent curator, Trisha Ziff, premiered at UCR/CMP in January 2005 and then went on to be seen at the International Center of Photography, New York; Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Sala de Arte Contemporaneo, Museo de Bellas Artes, Santa Cruz, Tenerife, España; Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen (KIT) Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam; La Triennale de Milano, Italy; El Palau de la Virreina, Barcelona, España; Forum Romeu Correia, Almada, Portugal; Santral Istanbul Exhibition Center, Istanbul, Turkey; and Museo del Territorio Sa Corona Arríbia, Sardinia, Italy.
