Editorial Reviews

Review

Errant Modernism is outstanding. Esther Gabara effortlessly navigates between avant-garde literary texts and modern print culture to reveal an ethic of ‘that which errs.’ In the process, photography becomes both the fact and metaphor enabling her theory of Latin American modernist cultural production.”—Roberto Tejada, author of National Camera: Photography and Mexico’s Image Environment


“With subtlety and rigor, Esther Gabara deftly expands the horizon of photographic history and redefines the contours of twentieth-century modernism in the Americas. Focusing on the social and cultural ‘ethos’ of aesthetic practice in both Mexico and Brazil, she provides a provocative corrective to formalist definitions that dominate the field and demonstrates that the full story of photographic modernism has yet to be told.”—Jennifer A. González, author of Subject to Display: Reframing Race in Contemporary Installation Art
