La Mirada en el Otro: Conexiones / Confrontaciones
The Spanish National Photography Prize.
Presented as part of Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, The Gaze in the Other: Connections and Confrontations (La Mirada en el Otro: Conexiones / Confrontaciones) is a collective exhibition that brings together for the first time a wide variety of artists who have been awarded the Spanish National Prize for Photography, established by the Ministry of Culture of Spain in 1994.
The exhibition, organized by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain and curated by Artendencias, Carmen de la Guerra and Javier Díez, becomes an anthology of the history of Spanish photography across the last sixty years, visualizing unsuspected links among the works of different artists.
When viewing the exhibition as a whole, we can observe how the development of individual artists has been consistent with the transformation of Spanish society from the fifties to the present day. Featuring the works of Gabriel Cualladó, Cristina García Rodero, Humberto Rivas, Alberto García-Alix, Chema Madoz, Toni Catany, Joan Colom, Carlos Pérez Siquier, Ramón Masats, Ouka Leele, Pablo Pérez-Mínguez, Manuel Vilariño, Bleda y Rosa.
