‘The Beauty of Lines’

‘The Beauty of Lines’ at Foto Colectania

The foundation has compiled photos from the Gilman and González-Falla collection by artists from different eras and parts of the world.

Throughout history, in very general terms, photographers have taken one of two paths: the illusion of imitating reality or highlighting the aesthetic qualities of the image. All of this can be seen in the use of lines, whether instantaneous lines, rational lines or the many curved lines of the human body. All of them have structured photographs for many years, even to the point of abstraction. The Foto Colectania foundation proposes to explain this interesting side of art in its exhibition The Beauty of Lines, a selection of masterpieces from the history of photography, which are part of the collection of Sondra Gilman and Celso González-Falla. So, we can see snapshots from some of the best photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Visitors will experience the power of lines through these truly unrivalled pieces. These include works by Robert Adams, Walker Evans, Rineke Dijkstra, Man Ray, Berenice Abbott and Lee Friedlander, among others, in which the era or place they were taken are irrelevant and all that matters is their formal similarities.

The Beauty of Lines will be on from 20 June through 29 September, Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm. As we’ve said, it will be at Foto Colectania.

Tickets cost €4 and can be purchased at the ticket offices. More information is available on the Foto Colectania website.
