Helena Almeida | Chema Madoz. Inhabited designs

-

Inhabited designs builds upon resonances between the works of two of the first authors to form part of the Foto Colectania collection, revealing their personal approach to the creative process.

The title of the exhibition pays homage to Helena Almeida’s Desenho habitado, the first series in which she used photography. We also drew upon the original concept of design in its Renaissance meaning, which refers both to the drawing itself as well as to the project and the mental process of translating an artist’s idea into work. A practice that accurately defines the fascinating work of these artists.

Photobooks for your eyes

  -  

As part of the celebrations for our 20th anniversary, we are opening our photobook treasure chest to show you some of the jewels, first editions, curiosities and remarkable books from our collection. You will be able to access to a selection of authors created especially for you in our library, during a small format session. Among them we will have Sandra Balcells, Richard Avedon, Colita, Ferdinando Scianna, Joan Fontcuberta, Sally Mann... and more.

It will be a unique experience to see some photobooks that are very difficult to access.

Pairing XXVI: Realities & fictions

-

Pairing is a series of exhibitions initiated in 2007 in the exhibition hall of Bodegas RODA (Haro, La Rioja) based on photographs from the Foto Colectania collection.

In each selection, a common link is established between different photographers under a central thematic axis. The 26th edition of the Maridajes cycle, entitled "Realities and Fictions", combines the resonance between two authors who have much in common: Joan Fontcuberta and Cristina De Middel.
