ITmakES è un’iniziativa promossa dall’Ambasciata d’Italia a Madrid per favorire i contatti tra giovani professionisti italiani e spagnoli e promuovere la collaborazione tra i due Paesi. L’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Madrid, in collaborazione con PhotoEspaña, il più importante festival internazionale di Fotografia e Arti Visive che si celebra a Madrid ogni anno, e Camera – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia, hanno indetto il concorso “ITmakES Art”.

Il concorso è rivolto a fotografi italiani e spagnoli minori di 40 anni e i candidati selezionati avranno l’opportunità di far visionare gratuitamente il proprio portfolio il 3 e il 4 giugno 2019 presso la Scuola Internazionale Alcobendas PhotoEspaña.

I due progetti vincitori saranno presentati presso l’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Madrid, nel mese di ottobre 2019, in occasione della “Giornata del Contemporaneo”, evento internazionale dedicato all’arte contemporanea italiana nel mondo, promossa dal Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale. Il tema scelto per questa edizione è “Razionale/Irrazionale”, opposti complementari nella visione del reale, ispirandosi ai famosi versi del poeta Pier Paolo Pasolini “sono stato razionale e sono stato irrazionale: fino in fondo”. Il bando è aperto fino al 22 aprile 2019 e le norme del concorso sono consultabili al link: http://www.phe.es/phe-2019/programas-profesionales/itmakes-art/

helen levitt @ albertina

The ALBERTINA is featuring the American photographer Helen Levitt (1913–2009) in a retrospective that brings together around 130 of her iconic works. These range from her early, surrealism-influenced photographs to her 1941 photos from Mexico, the clandestinely shot portraits of New York subway passengers and her revolutionary early color photographs. Helen Levitt numbers among the foremost exponents of street photography. It was in the 1930s that this passionate observer and chronicler of New York street life first began taking pictures of the inhabitants of poorer neighborhoods such as the Lower East Side, the Bronx, and Harlem. Levitt’s unsentimental pictorial language gives rise to a humorous and theatrical pageant situated beyond any moral or social documentary clichés. In 1974, Levitt became the first color photographer to be given an exhibition by New York’s Museum of Modern Art. 12.10.2018 – 27.10.2019.
