Over the last 60 years, Spain has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis, from post-civil war hardship and the transition to democracy, to prosperity within the European Union. This group exhibition is a veritable palette of the diverse range of approaches adopted by photographers working in this region throughout these decades. Extending across three generations, the artists in La Mirada en el Otro, Conexiones / Confrontaciones (The Gaze in the Other, Connections / Confrontations) reflect Spain’s photographic history and changing creative identity. Each is a recipient of the Ministry of Culture’s esteemed Spanish National Photography Prize, established by the Ministry of Culture of Spain in 1994. This exhibition illuminates the evolution of Spanish photography, captured through the lenses of some of the nation’s most respected practitioners. Their works offer an anthology of sorts, elucidating the richness, potency, and imagination behind the country’s history of photographic expression.

Co-presented with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain, the Spanish Agency forInternational Development Cooperation (AECID) and the Embassy of Spain in Canada
