The MAPFRE Foundation is presenting two exhibitions to open the centre on October 9th.
Finally, the day arrives for the inauguration of the KBr Photography Centre of the MAPFRE Foundation. Located in the MAPFRE Tower, the centre is named after KBr, the chemical symbol for potassium bromide, which is a salt used in the photographic development process. The inauguration will take place on Friday 9th of October, when the two samples that will open the centre will be presented. On the one hand, ‘Bill Brandt’ will hold a retrospective of the work of the British photographer, considered to be one of the founders of modern photography along with Walker Evans or Cartier-Bresson. His work is essential to understanding British life in the mid-20th century, as it portrayed the country's society, landscape and literature.
It will also be the first time that the American artist ‘Paul Strand’, recognised as one of the most important photographers of the last century, can be seen on a solo exhibition. With KBr, and this exhibition in particular, the MAPFRE Foundation is initiating an exhibition programme based on its collection to contribute to the training of future generations in the language of photography.
You can visit the two exhibitions from the 9th of October to the 24th of January 2021 with the general ticket, which costs 5 euros. The centre is open from Tuesday to Sunday, including public holidays, from 11 am to 7 pm. On the website you will find all the practical information to plan your visit.
