Thing to do: Winogrand’s photos @fmapfre

Ya’ll know we love photos !!

There are some images that bring you back to an old era, to another time and place. Not talking about ancient photos, some contemporary pictures have the power to illustrate what was the life like at the time they were taken, and even capture some of the soul and feelings of the photographer that shot them.

Garry Winogrand

This is what we found at the photo exhibit that the Mapfre foundation is featuring.

Gary Winogrand, american photographer, he passed away in 1984,leaving over 250.000 unseen pictures in undeveloped films.

He is the author of these master pieces that will take you back to the 20th century, to the US life along the journey that Winogrand had for his own life.

Don’t miss this beautiful exhibit !!!

 

When: Till May 3d

Where: Barbara de Braganza 13

Thing to do: Walk by @mataderomadrid

Today we will take you for a walk by the Matadero, the old slaughter house of Madrid.

This buildings complex were recovered for cultural purposes in the Madrid Rio remodelling project, and it houses different artistic parades, performances and shows.

Nothingness matadero

Today we will recommend some of the different exhibits they are featuring:

Guerrilla Girls, a compilation of almost all the work done by the American feminist art collective on their 30th anniversary.

The Ibero American Biennial of Design (BID), the largest exhibition of Ibero American Design held every two years in Madrid. Diverse institutions, and professionals, take part in the exhibition that features both emerging and established professionals in the sector.

Our favourite exhibition today at the Matadero is the Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness. It takes you to a dark pool of water which reflects, like a mirror, the charred room and its visitors. People make their way down a wooden walkway surrounding this beautiful pool of still water. And there’s a way to spoil the calm, to break the silence and quietness of the water… dialling up the phone number +34657529016. Each call produces a ripple on the water’s surface. An unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness?

Come and visit Matadero, tell us what exhibition is your favourite

Enjoy!!

 

When: Till May 17th

Where: Plaza de Legazpi, 8
