> DESCRIPTION

We are also presenting two separated exhibitions on Project Room #1 and Project Room # 2. In Project Room # 1 we will have a selection of Latin American Photographs, with works by Vik Muniz, Rosangela Renno, Jose Manuel Fors and Mabel Poblet. 

Project Room # 1 - Latin American Photography In this room we will present a selection of contemporary artists who work with photography. Vik Muniz is represented by two of his most famous series: Diamonds and Chocolate. The glamorous portraits of Jackie Kennedy and Maria Callas are made up by sparkling diamonds and a famous religious scene of a crucifixion from a Caravaggio painting is recreated in chocolate. The two pieces by Rosangela Renno show her interest in exploring new procedures within the field: one of the pieces combines negatives with fabric, while the second one is more “technical”, emphasizing the printing aspect. Jose Manuel Fors also has two pieces on exhibition, both good examples of his “fragmented” method in which visual memories become compositions organized in the manner of a puzzle. Mabel Poblet, the youngest artist in the exhibition, is represented by one of her autobiographic pieces, where her front and profile images are superimposed on the flickering lights of a metropolitan silhouette.
