Lilly Albritton: ¡Qué Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!
A Photographic Essay
New Works Space

Albritton presents a photographic essay with an altar-installation displaying devotion to the Virgin Guadalupe along the US-Mexico border that incorporates recordings of celebratory chants. Ceremonial dance, singing, religious processions and pilgrimages are documented in order to preserve how these ever-evolving practices take place in a certain region and point in time.
Counterbalancing the violent images coming from Mexican news, Albritton introduces “unique acts of popular devotion” to new audiences. A fresh perspective arises and peace is promoted through generating an appreciation of cultural practices. Photos taken over nine years in seven cities: Mexico City; San Antonio, Texas; El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Phoenix, Arizona; and Los Angeles, California. The narrative supports Albritton’s doctoral dissertation in Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas Dallas.
