‘Viatge a un arxiu’

Joana Biarnés’s most intimate pieces

Palau Robert presents 130 photos of the first woman in both Catalonia and all of Spain to become a professional photographer.

Joana Biarnés was one of the most important photojournalist and graphic reporters in the country, not just because she was one of the first women to work in the profession but also because of the great depth of her work. Throughout the month of December, you can explore the most personal side of her legacy, the most intimate aspects that Biarnés left behind, far from the professional field, in the exhibition Viatge a un arxiu. Crònica fotogràfica de la descoberta de Joana Biarnés 2015-2019” (A Voyage into an Archive: Photographic Chronicles of the Discovery of Joana Biarnés 2015-2019). This discovery was made possible after a personal photographic project by Imma Cortés that started out in 2015 when she began working on classifying the photographer’s analogue archive. As a result of this, a photographic journey was created through a wide group of people who formed part of Joana Biarnés’s world, participating in different aspects related with the rediscovery of the artist's importance.

The exhibition, ‘Viatge a un arxiu. Crònica fotogràfica de la descoberta de Joana Biarnés 2015-2019’ will be open to the public from 4 to 9 December, from Monday to Saturday, from 9 am to 8 pm, and on Sundays and public holidays from 9 am to 2.30 pm. The display, located in Room 4 of Palau Robert, will be closed on 25 and 26 December. The exhibition was also made possible by Photographic Social Vision, the entity that represents Biarnés’s legacy.

As with all the displays in the space, this is free and open to everyone. You can find all of the information on the Palau Robert website.
