PAUL STRAND. FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE COLLECTIONS

– 30

Fundación MAPFRE Guanarteme, Las Palmas

Commitment. Documentarism. Innovation.

Paul Strand is one of the fundamental creators of the photography history. From the initial images he took in New York in the 1910s to the last ones he took in his garden in Orgeval at the end of his life, along with those he took during his trips to Mexico, New England, France, Italy, the Hebrides Islands or Ghana, his work and his projects are today considered a reference.

This exhibition is articulated around the major themes that preoccupied Strand throughout his life (geometries, landscapes, portraits and countries) through which the keys to the enormous importance and value of his work are made clear. In the words of Juan Naranjo, gallery owner and editor, “Strand went beyond the mere revelation of the formal beauty of the world: he was a committed artist who explored other paths of documentalism, in which he balanced form and content. He also projected his ethical and social commitment in his photographs. Throughout his life he continued to interact with important creators and maintained his connection with the most innovative currents of thought and with the new photographic theories. His extensive and interesting works of art made him one of the most important photographers of the 20th century”.

PAZ ERRÁZURIZ. FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE COLLECTIONS

Art Museum Miguel Urrutia, Bogotá

Curiosity. Transgression. Nonconformism.

Since she began her photography career in the 1960s, in the midst of the Pinochet dictatorship, Chilean photographer Paz Errázuriz has shown in her work a great curiosity for the human condition and for the underpriviledged of society: the mentally ill, the homeless, circus performers, transsexuals, prostitutes and indigenous natives. n her images of brothels, asylums, psychiatric hospitals, she captures the singularity of human behavior, breaking taboos.

This exhibition, composed of 171 photographies and 2 videos, aims to show the key series that make up the works of this artist, in which portraits become the best tool to showcase the most decadent and marginal face of Chilean society. The use of black and white intensifies the message of condemnation.

Portraits. Feelings. Humanity.

Nicholas Nixon holds a unique and outstanding place in the history of photography in recent decades. His work, carried out with a very refined technique and a careful composition, takes us into his everyday reality. His closeness and humanity make the viewer participate and identify with the emotions that underlie his images.

Nixon has always worked on series in which he mentions fundamental aspects of human life, and one of them is the passing of time. Some of his works, such as The Brown Sisters or his family portraits can be found throughout his entire career. The way he works requires a great deal of time: the photographer establishes a relationship with the person being photographed generating an intimacy and trust that is reflected in his images.

Although his career is distinguished by and dedicated to portraits, Nixon also portrays spaces and objects, showing us themes he was attracted to with extraordinary clarity.

PAZ ERRÁZURIZ. FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE COLLECTIONS

Moreira Salles Institute, São Paulo, Brazil

Daring, committed and a defender of human rights..

The work of Paz Errázuriz (Santiago de Chile, 1944) is very unconventional; her way of exploring reality confronts us with difficult, uncomfortable images that make no concessions to the viewer.

The nonconformist view of this Chilean photographer turns her photographs into a tool for the defense of human rights, those excluded by the Chilean regime and by society. Her work features the mentally ill, the homeless, circus performers, transsexuals, prostitutes and indigenous people.

This exhibition, composed mainly of works from Fundación MAPFRE’s collections, aims to show the key series that make up the artist’s work, in which portraits become the best tool to showcase the most decadent and marginal face of Chilean society and the use of black and white intensifies the message of complaint.

In this video of Maria Clara Villas you will be able to see the whole assembly process of the exhibition.
