FOTO/GRÁFICA at Le BAL
Opening to the public tomorrow is this new history of the Latin-American photobook. Put together by major Spanish curator, historian and writer Horacio Fernandez, and coming directly out of the research for his just-published book The Latin-American Photobook, this exhibition is the culmination of a four-year, cross-continental research effort. Beginning with the 1920s and continuing up to today, it provides new perspectives on the under-charted history of Latin American photography, featuring work by great figures such as Claudia Andujar, Barbara Brändli, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, and many others. The show is divided into 6 thematic sections: History and propaganda; Urban photography; Photographic essays; Artists photobooks; Literature & photography and Contemporary photobooks. Also worth noting is the parallel experimental film program, plus a program of debates and discussions at the gallery from February.
Until 8 Apr. Wed-Fri noon-8pm (10pm Thu), Sat 11am-8pm, Sun, 11am-7pm.
