Upcoming Exhibition

CARRIE MAE WEEMS. A Great Turn in the Possible

-

Carrie Mae Weems (Oregon, 1953) is a multidisciplinary artist best known for her photography work, a medium she has used extensively for the last forty years of her career. The exhibition looks back at Weems' body of work with an emphasis on her pioneering approach to photography — images are projections into the future animated by a tireless sense of hope.

The exhibition, curated by Elvira Dyangani Ose, is presented jointly at the Centro de Fotografía KBr Fundación MAPFRE and at Fundación Foto Colectania.

The exhibition is organised by Fundación MAPFRE in collaboration with Fundación Foto Colectania, Barcelona and Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart.

How does a photograph smell like?
Education

How does a photograph smell like?

Thanks to the collaboration between the Fundació Ernesto Ventós and Foto Colectania, last May 28th we held a very special workshop at our headquarters, whose objective was to unite the senses of sight and smell.

The activity was attended by families from the educational community of the Fundació Collserola, with children between 6 and 12 years old together with their representatives.

Through the sensory experience, participants were able to simultaneously appreciate photographs of our collection together with aromas provided by the Fundació Ernesto Ventós that made allegory to the content of the images.

Photobook workshop with Clicme and the Fundació Collserola

Thanks to the collaboration agreement established between the Fundació Collserola and Foto Colectania, on May we held a series of workshops with the aim of approaching the image and photography to sixth grade students of the Escola Frederic Mistral-Tècnic Eulàlia.

The workshops, organized jointly with Clicme, had as a central element the sequencing of a photobook from initially unconnected images. As a result of the exercise, the students played with the polysemic capacity of the images, giving a unique narrative sense to the order that each one gave to their series of photographs.
