Special Haiti Photo Exhibit: Images from Jeff Antebi, Curated by LACMA’s Edward Robinson, to Benefit International Medical Corps

(March 5, 2010, Los Angeles ) — International Medical Corps and LACMA photography curator Edward Robinson present a special benefit exhibition of works by Jeff Antebi entitled Haiti: Before 1.12.10.

The exhibition will be on view from April 25 to May 9 across the street from LACMA at Creative Photography Workshops (6020 Wilshire Blvd , Los Angeles 90036 ). An opening reception will be held for the public on Saturday, April 24. In addition, a special evening will be hosted by KCRW’s Garth Trinidad on May 1.

“To view Jeff Antebi’s portraits of Haitians, taken only months before the devastating earthquake, provides valuable insight into the depth and character of Haiti ’s people. The sense of commitment and compassion he brings to bear on his subjects reaffirms photography’s power to inform and inspire, at a time when Haiti’s challenges remain great,” says Edward Robinson, Associate Curator of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Dept. of LACMA and Curator of Antebi’s Haiti: Before 1.12.10.

Proceeds will benefit the Haiti relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts of International Medical Corps, a humanitarian, nonprofit organization which provides medical training and assistance to local populations worldwide. Since its inception nearly 25 years ago, International Medical Corps’ mission has been consistent: relieve the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster and disease, by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. This approach of helping people help themselves is critical to returning devastated populations to self-reliance.

“We are tremendously grateful to LACMA’s Edward Robinson and Jeff Antebi for bringing these images of Haitian people and their lives to the Los Angeles community. Their efforts will go a long way in helping us provide life-saving assistance to Haitians as they work to recover and rebuild,” said Nancy Aossey, President and CEO of International Medical Corps.
