This event has ended.

Instituto Cervantesput together the exhibit "Maremágnum: Jordi Socías," a retrospective on the last 30 years of his work as photographer and photo editor. The exhibit, never before seen in the USA, is composed of photographs that show key moments of Spanish society, images of daily life and a series of portraits of important figures of European culture. The exhibition features a selection of images that the artist calls "Situaciones encontradas" (Found Situations), everyday images of cities such as Santiago de Cuba, Beijing, London, Barcelona, and Amsterdam; and an ample gallery of portraits through which Socías has offered his personal view of a significant number of key figures that are essential to understand Spanish and European culture of the last four decades: Dalí, Jorge Luis Borges, Pedro Almodóvar, Leonardo Sciascia, Graham Green, Paul Bocusse, Vittorio Gassman, Alberto Moravia, Bernardo Bertolucci. This exhibit intends to shine a light on the processes of democratic transition and transformation of Spain and Europe. The images of Socías suggest an exploration through moments and figures that were essential for the metamorphosis that the Spanish society experienced.
