Exhibitions & Lectures

Jesús Garza continues to exhibit and lecture about his photographs from coast to coast and more recently, internationally. At Mexico City's El Museo Universitario Arte Conemporáneo (MUAC) de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and in Bordeaux, France at the Musée d'Aquitaine.

From the beginning for the San José Museum of Art in 1974 to the present for Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, Jesús Garza has been asked to talk about and exhibit his photographs, participate on panels, teach workshops and university classes. 


Garza's photographs were published in Amazing Americans: Post-War United States Era, Cesar Chavez, Wright Group/McGraw-Hill. The Fight in The Fields, Susan Ferriss, Harcourt Brace & Company. The Devil in Silicon Valley: Race and Mexicans in Northern California, Dr. Stephen Pitti, Assistant Professor of History and American Studies at Yale University. Princeton University Press. Cesar Chavez and La Causa, Dan La Botz, Visiting Assistant Professor-History, Miami University, Ohio, Pearson Longman Press. Smithsonian Q & A: Latino History & Culture: The Ultimate Question & Answer Book, Ilan Stavans, Harper Collins Publishers and in other books, magazines and articles.

Unlike many photographers who are affiliated with a museum or university, Garza never applies to be a part of an exhibition. All of Garza's shows have been by request of the gallery, museum or institution. Definitely never any quid pro quo which is standard practice for many university photographers who pad their vitaes.

Yes, many people use Garza's photographs without permission (please don't) or even a modest credit line. When the photographer contacts them they are often surprised and say, "I  thought you were dead." Well, not quite yet. Please feel free to contact Garza at any time.
