El Ojo de Tu Vecino (The Eye of Your Neighbor) is an exhibition that attempts to recreate the vision of a number of young Spanish-speaking photographers who live and work in New York, and to open a space where they can express their thoughts on coexistence in our metropolis. The photographic visual essays gathered here attempt a reading on different levels; where the public, the private and the intimate are theorized. El Ojo de Tu Vecino creates a visual discourse surrounding the reality, fiction and imagination of the subjects being photographed and, without a doubt, on human behavior.
Curated by the Cuban Rafael DíazCasas, El Ojo de Tu Vecino responds to a collaborative desire between three institutions: Aperture Foundation, under the leadership of the Mexican Juan García de Oteyza, El Museo del Barrio, whose director Julián Zugazagoitia made the project his own, suggesting through his collaborators a curatorial course of action, and Instituto Cervantes New York, promoter, producer and host of the exhibition.
