Ilse Bing

KBr Photography Center, Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona)

The work of German photographer Ilse Bing (1899-1998) is difficult to classify. The innovative gaze projected by her images responded to a modern vision, indebted to the impact of the Bauhaus, in which strong contrasts of light and shadow, diagonal angles, plunging and low-angle framing, and solarization predominate.

The exhibition includes nearly 200 works that chronologically span a somewhat short career, from 1929 to the end of the 1950s, but in which Bing addressed a wide range of essential issues in photographic language.

Leonora Carrington

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Fundación MAPFRE, in collaboration with ARKEN Museum (Copenhagen), presents the first Leonora Carrington retrospective in continental Europe. An exhibition that follows the career of this eclectic artist from her early drawings to her later works.

Painter, sculptor and writer among many other things, Leonora Carrington was one of the most prominent surrealist artists. A career always marked by her personal life, which made her, in the eyes of many, an eccentric and tragic person. However, her work cannot be reduced to the product of an unstable mind, but rather to the fruit of an extraordinary imagination and a meaning that is not always easily decipherable. In her paintings, drawings, stories, poems, tapestries and dresses, Leonora speaks to us of human aspects that cannot always be put into words. Abstract concepts such as fear, pain, joy, amazement and happiness enrich her work, full of magic and mystery so that each one of us, the audience, can find in it a mirror for the present.
