Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall

Art for all in the heart of Madrid

To underline our commitment to photography, we have devoted space to this artistic discipline in our exhibition rooms on Calle Bárbara de Braganza, on the ‘Paseo del Arte’, the main museum thoroughfare of Madrid. This space is divided into two separate floors of 868 m2 where every year we organize four photography exhibitions of renowned masters and well-established contemporary photographers. The photography program did not start until 2008 with Walker Evans, since when our exhibition rooms have hosted such illustrious names as Lewis Hine, Lisette Model, Cartier-Bresson and Paul Strand, as well as photographers such as Fazak Sheikh, Ana Malagrida, Lynne Cohen and Stephen Shore.

Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall

Del 09/02/2017 al 04/06/2017

From 9 February you will be able to enjoy the work of the American photographer Lewis Baltz. This is the first exhibition of his work in Spain, as well as being the first international retrospective to take place since his death in 2014. Baltz created a new photographic vision of the United States in the second half of the 20th century. Instead of America's natural unspoilt beauty, he revealed the suburbs proliferating on the edges of the cities and depicted the landscape as occupied territory.
