The new exhibitions in La Virreina Centre de la Imatge

The four exhibitions curated by Valentín Roma will open on Friday 13 March.

Rafael Bernis, Susan Sontag, Barbara Hammer and Daniel G. Andújar are the names of the people that form the focal point of the exhibitions presented this month in La Virreina Centre de la Imatge. They are similar, insofar as they share a very personal view of the world and are full of opinion. The four exhibitions open on Friday 13th at 7.00 pm.

‘On Photography’ is an exhibition that takes its name from Susan Sontag’s book, from where the author’s sources and references have been extracted in order to create this museographic account. It proposes a different way of understanding Sontag’s narrative, with which she managed to create what is considered to be a manifesto of the ‘century of images’. It will be open until 17 May.

On 31 May two exhibitions close their doors: ‘Olvido’s Bar’ is a photographic report by Rafael Bernis carried out in the bar that was once the epicentre of Barcelona’s red-light district. The work is a portrait of a period in history and shows social traditions that no longer exist. In the second exhibition, artist Daniel G. Andújar studies the utopia of the ‘The Third Estate’, the art used by revolutions and battles to endow aesthetics to the working class.

Until 27 September you can visit ‘Sisters!’, the first retrospective of Barbara Hammer’s work in Spain, showing the 50-year career of one of the most influential filmmakers and activists of American cinema.

Entry to La Virreina Centre de la Imatge is free and the doors are open from Tuesday to Sunday, including public holidays, from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm.
