July 6, 2014

Santiago, Jul 6 (EFE).- The Spanish Cultural Center in this capital on July 10 will inaugurate "La Mirada en el Otro," a photo exhibition that will bring together for the first time the work of a large number of artists who won Spain's National Photography Award between its creation in 1994 and 2008.

The exhibition, the directors of which are Carmen de la Guerra and Javier Diez, is an anthology of the history of Spanish photography over the past 60 years in which innovative connections have been created among the works of different artists.

It constitutes a joint vision that provides an appreciation of the evolution of photography and of evolving Spanish society, which since the 1950s has undergone a huge transformation that is reflected in the documentary aspect of the exhibition.

Postwar Spanish society is represented with works by Gabriel Cuallado, Ramon Masats, Carlos Perez Siquier and Joan Colom.

The show also covers the '60s with the documentary work of Cristina Garcia Rodero, the particular universe of Toni Catany and that of Humberto Rivas, an Argentine who settled in Spain.

The '80s are also presented in pop works from "the Madrid scene" created by Alberto Garcia-Alix, Pablo Perez-Minguez and Ouka Leele.

And finally, current trends in conceptual photography are revealed in the photos of Chema Madoz, Joan Fontcuberta, Manuel VilariÑo and the husband and wife team of Maria Bleda and Jose Maria Rosa.

The exhibition is being organized by the Spanish Education, Culture and Sports Ministry along with the Spanish International Cooperation Agency for Development (AECID) and the Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Ministry, via the Spanish Cultural Center in Santiago. EFE
