Bleda y Rosa

KBr Photography Center, Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona)

María Bleda (Castellón, 1969) and José María Rosa (Albacete, 1970) are among the artists of their generation who have tackled, in detail, the complexities surrounding the notion of landscape in the field of contemporary photography. Over the course of three decades and following ambitious research carried out in several countries, they have conducted one of the most intense and rigorous explorations of the links between image, territory and memory.

This retrospective covers their careers, compiling, for the first time, all of their work to date; an exceptional prospect considering the extent of their series and the time frame they cover. The exhibition allows us to delve deeper into their artistic approach while at the same time establishing new fields of analysis in the thematic areas present in their art. In this sense, the exhibition outlines the major discursive axes of their work, notably the dialectic between landscape and territory, as well as the narrative nature of the images in relation to historical accounts and personal experience.

Resonancias

Fundación MAPFRE collections

KBr Photography Center, Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona)

Behind every image lies no mystery: simply another image. We can only imitate previous gestures, never innovate. To a certain extent, therefore, everything is déjà vu. The meaning of an image lies less in its origin or genealogy than its destiny.

“Resonancias” (Reverberations) is an experimental manifesto that consists of selecting a series of works from Fundación MAPFRE’s photographic collection -especially rich in classic American artists- and proposing their reverberation or resonance in contemporary photographic practices. It is not, therefore, a question of limiting oneself to choosing works according to a certain curatorial criterion, but rather to speculating pedagogically on the transition from photography to post-photography. In other words, visualizing the evolution of photography as an aesthetic expression that promises truth and memory, to the anti-aesthetic essences that regard images as shared gestures of social articulation.

Paolo Gasparini

Field of Images

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Paolo Gasparini (Gorizia, Italy, 1934. Citizen of Venezuela since 1954) is the photographer who best portrays the cultural tensions and contradictions of South America. His images transmit the harsh social reality faced by a region whose cultural authenticity is unquestionable and where past and tradition dialogue with a clumsy modernity. Gasparini’s work has a visual language of its own through which he seems to criticize the consumer society.

The exhibition is a review of the artist’s six-decade-long career, presented as if it were a journey, an itinerary through various mutant American and European cities where we will see how concepts such as wealth and poverty are distorted and redefined.

All the works are part of the Fundación MAPFRE collections.

Carlos Pérez Siquier

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

The exhibition featuring Carlos Pérez Siquier (1930 – 2021) is presented as a retrospective of his most important series and as a heartfelt tribute to the photographer who died recently. From his native Almería, he stood out on the Spanish and international scene as a key figure in the forging of photographic modernity and the professionalization of the medium in Spain. From postulates close to neorealism and, later on, as a pioneer of color photography, Pérez Siquier had a singular perspective, fully aware of his authorship despite having started from an intuitive conception of photography, far from any academic training. His career was acknowledged in 2003 when he was awarded the Spanish National Photography Prize.
