EXHIBITION 50 FOTOGRAFÍAS CON HISTORIA. ROAMING IN GUADALAJARA
As part of the cycle of planned roaming, the street exhibition “50 photographs with history” will remain on display until June 20 at the Paseo de las Cruces in Guadalajara, Spain. The exhibition – which at the same time is being presented at the Embassy of Washington D.C of the United States until September – continues to represent an important space of visibility and vindication of Spanish photography, based on the visual, historical and symbolic route proposed by its curators José María Díaz-Maroto and Gonzalo Revidiego.
In this way, the work of important names of photography arrives in a new city, to propose a retrospective trip through eight decades of the discipline in Spain, where there are outstanding names, -some of them deserving of the National Photography Award-, such as Cristina García Rodero, Joan Fontcuberta, Chema Madoz, Gabriel Cualladó, Joan Colom, Carlos Pérez Siquier , Isabel Muñoz, Cristina de Middel, Ramón Masats, Ouka Leele, Alberto Schommer, Juan Manuel Castro Prieto; together with Agustí Centelles and Francesc Català Roca, both National Awards of Plastic Arts.
They are joined by another significant number of creators such as Pablo Juliá, José María Mellado, Marisa Flórez, Sandra Balsells, Martín Santos Yubero, among many others who star, these days, in the visuality of these public spaces. An opportunity to stop looking, and delve into history from the lens and precise taking of the aforementioned authors that take us from the outbreak of the Civil War, to the postwar, the transition; to the contemporaneity contained in masterful captures that have become part of the historical reservoir of Spanish photography.
“50 fotografías con historia”, a project of Signo Editores and organized by Acción Cultural Española continues its exhibition journey socializing and democratizing art, exposing these realities, characters and scenes in a way that is close to the public. A turn to the memory of Spain and photography as a faithful reflection of the historical and social evolution of a country, of a lived time.
