KBr Flama 2021

KBr Photography Center, Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona)

KBr Flama is a project that is conceived with the objective of supporting emerging creation and the new generations of photographers who are beginning their professional careers after completing their training at the schools of photography in Barcelona.

In this first edition of 2021, the four selected photographers have been Laura Gálvez-Rhein (Frankfurt-am-Main, 1998), Blanca Munt (Barcelona, 1997), Gael del Río (Barcelona, 1990) and Gunnlöð Jóna Rúndarsdóttir (Reykjavik, 1992). A panel of professionals linked to photography which included Marta Gili, Sergio Mah, Ramón Reverté and Arianna Rinaldo selected these photographers through the visualization of work produced by students from the following schools: Grisart, Idep Barcelona, IEFC and Elisava, Barcelona School of Design and Engineering.

The exhibition groups four projects that take us to different realities in a very personal way. These realities are grounded in recollections of the past and in the observation of aspects of collective identity.

Paolo Gasparini

KBr Photography Center, Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona)

Paolo Gasparini (Gorizia, Italy, 1934. He has lived in Venezuela since 1954) he is the photographer who has best portrayed the tensions and cultural contradictions of the South American continent. His images convey the harsh social reality faced by a region whose cultural authenticity is unquestionable and where past and tradition dialogue with a clumsy imposed modernity. Gasparini creates a work with a visual language of his own and in which he seems to manifest a critique of the consumer society, as well as a certain obsession with the way advertising seduces us.

The exhibition presented by Fundación MAPFRE takes a journey through the career of this artist, and focuses both on photographs and on another of his main means of expression: the photobook. Six decades of career presented as if it were a journey. It will be an itinerary through various American and European mutant cities. From these last constellations, stereotypical views are distorted: that first world, which in its fallacies of happiness leaves us empty, is presented to us intertwined with the visual overabundance of underdevelopment. In the exhibition tour we will see that concepts already mentioned, such as wealth and poverty, are distorted to be redefined.

Judith Joy Ross

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Fundación MAPFRE presents the largest retrospective of Judith Joy Ross (Pennsylvania, 1946) to date, which explores the photographic archive that the artist has been developing over the last thirty years.

In 1966 she began taking photographs of the people in her city as a way of understanding the emotional world of those around her. In 1979, after several trips around Europe, Ross definitively focuses on the portrait genre and marksa turning point in this genre with her images. Thanks to the use of large format, she manages to capture the past, present and even the future of the subjects posing before her lens.

Her portraits obey a personal impulse and a deep interest in the people she meets. Her success is due to the connection that the photographer establishes with the portrayed, while focusing on themes such as innocence, the different stages of grief, morality or the dreams of society. Neither fashion nor irony are part of her discourse and her closest references are Lewis Hine, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, August Sander or Diane Arbus in the field of historical photography, and Rineke Dijkstra, Sally Mann and Thomas Struth in contemporary photography.

Morandi. Infinite Resonance

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Giorgio Morandi (Bologna, 1890-1964) was an artist always faithful to a type of personal research, to a silent and still painting, which recorded in the poetry of objects the impulses of the soul and the passing of time. Morandi. Resonancia Infinita (Infinite Resonance) is an in depth journey through the work of this author, one of the most significant, unclassifiable and challenging for the history of art of the 20th century.

Morandi’s work will be accompanied by a careful selection of works by contemporary artists who have been able to interpret his language and offer interpretations from a plastic dialogue with the Bolognese painter. These artists include Tony Cragg, Joel Meyerowitz, Edmund de Waal, Luigi Ontani, Tacita Dean, Juan José Aquerreta and Alfredo Alcaín. The exhibition thus tries to speak of a “living” Morandi, whose legacy does not fade, but germinates in unexpected ways in the late twentieth century and early decades of the twenty-first.
