In Madrid, touring the Espacio Miró (Recoletos Exhibition hall) permanent collection is to allow oneself to become infused with the vitality and the thoughtful reflection that define this Catalan artist's work. A text by Estrella de Diego helps us gets to the heart of Paysage, one of the works from the collection and an example of Miro's exercise in refining his painting.
A space where we can return to our exhibitions guided by the proposals that critics, art historians and photography experts, curators and writers offer us thanks to their collaborations in our newsletter.
And, above all, a space that is also an index (ultimately, a series of indices) which, based on these proposals, will bring us closer to other works, other artists and other experiences in order to enrich our cultural knowledge.
The activities we organize around our exhibition program, exhibitions in other exhibition halls around Spain and overseas as well as the value of our drawing and photography collections and other cultural news will form a regular part of this section.
In Barcelona, there is still time to enjoy the powerful photographs of Richard Learoyd (until 8 September). Come along. Explore.
Explore the suspended universe in the images of this photographer, where times stands still before the completely motionless models. Discussing his work, in an extract from the catalog, the exhibition's curator, Sandra Phillips, offers us some insight into the close relationship between his unique technique (the camera obscura) and the psychological profundity of his portraits.
The New York Skyscrapers form an artificial canyon. Their powerful vertical walls make up a dense network in which architecture rises up into the sky and where stories intertwine. It is so delightful to lose oneself in these photographs where the density of the image is not only down to the buildings, but also due to the signs: signs that clutter up the sidewalks, windows displays and stores full of posters and products...Buildings in construction and scenes of daily life fill the frames with stories that depict a key city in the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
Guided by Javier Rodríguez Barberán, tenured professor of the E.T.S de Arquitectura de Sevilla (Seville School of Architecture), we will immerse ourselves in the fascinating kaleidoscope of the metropolis that Berenice Abbott's lens offers us.
