Resonances. Joan Fontcuberta. Fundación MAPFRE Collections

One definition of the term ‘resonance’ refers to the artistic. As defined by Joan Fontcuberta, curator of the exhibition of the same name, which took place at the KBr Photography Center, it is “the interplay of correlations that establishes harmony between different works, promoting a dialogue between their respective creators and the periods in which they were created”.

In keeping with this definition, Joan Fontcuberta has brought to light works by artists such as Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, Helen Levitt, Robert Adams, Diane Arbus and Emmet Gowin that are held in the Fundación MAPFRE Collections. He has placed them in dialogue with the images of various contemporary artists with the intention that the works of the former, now classic photographers, become “defossilized”, leaving the past and speaking to us of the present.
