Les Rencontres de la Photographie de Arles is committed to the exhibition LA MOVIDA. A chronicle of turmoil, curated and produced by Foto Colectania, which will be part of the Festival's program on their 50th edition.
The exhibition features photographs by ALBERTO GARCÍA-ALIX, OUKA LEELE, PABLO PÉREZ-MINGUEZ AND MIGUEL TRILLO and can be seen in Foto Colectania as of October 17, 2019.
This exhibition curated by Antoine de Beaupré, Pepe Font de Mora and Irene de Mendoza, brings together the work of four photographers of La Movida, one of the most unique and spontaneous eras of contemporary Spanish culture, which took place mainly in Madrid in the early eighties.
After several decades of dictatorship and ostracism, the Spanish transition saw the emergence of a new generation fascinated by modernity and the idea of the new, which would crystallize into creators from different fields such as music, fashion, film, painting or photography. .
Alberto García-Alix, Ouka Leele, Pablo Pérez-Mínguez and Miguel Trillo, were part of La Movida, lived together and found themselves in different environments, but the exceptional thing is that each one lived and photographed with an unrepeatable energy and approached from poles radically different The result is a multifaceted look at this movement.
