Are you ready to enjoy another Valencian weekend? Do you fancy undertaking some photographic journeys to learn new things? In this case, let yourself be guided by our Spanish school El Rincón del Tándem 😉

This Friday, we propose new cultural plans so that our students of the Spanish course can enjoy unforgettable photographic journeys…

Are you ready to travel through the eyes of others? For more indications on how to undertake this journey, take a look here below.

Objectius pel canvi

Until the 28th of July. From 11.30 am to 2.00 pm and from 4.30 pm 16.30 pm to 8.00 pm
La Rambleta, Bulevar sur, esq. Calle Pío IX
Free exhibition

Are you worried about the future of the environment? Do you think it is necessary for all of us to do our bit to contribute to its care?

In this case, the Objectius Pel Canvi offers us a space to become aware of the climate change through images.

In fact, this collective exhibition speaks to us through photography about the negative impact of climate change on our planet and in our lives. And at the same time, it shosws us the irreplaceable beauty of nature as well as the current and future dangers of its destruction.

The exhibition is the result of a 3-month photo contest organized by the Valencia Climate and Energy Foundation. A municipal entity that is dedicated to inform and train about climate change, working in favour of urban sustainability.

Thanks to this contest, several activists and ordinary people have shared their photographs on social networks, contributing to this collective work.

In short, we invite you to go across this visual journey, alone or in company of friends.

And also to share reflections and good practices for the care of the environment 😉

La mirada de las Cosas. Fotografía japonesa en torno a Provoke

Until the 2nd of February 2020. From Thursday to Sunday, from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm and from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm
Bombas Gens, Avenida de Burjassot, 54-56
Free exibition

In museums and cultural centres we feel very comfortable … especially in summer 😉
We broaden our horizons and we also escape a bit form the suffocating heat. Don’t you think so?

After the Rambleta, we invite you to visit La Mirada de las cosas (The look of things). A collective exhibition of Japanese photography promoted by the Foundation Per Amor a l’Art. With this exhibition we moved to post-war Japan, when artists from the agency VIVO and collaborators of the magazine Provoke shook up the world of traditional photography with innovative approaches.

Our journey will begin at the end of the 50s and will end in our contemporary era.

Photographers like Obuyoshi Araki, Kōji Enokura, Takashi Hamaguchi, Hiroshi Hamaya, Daidō Moriyama, will tell us about profound social, cultural and political changes through an experimental perspective and new photo styles. Like, for example, the colloquially known are-bure-boke (grain, sweep, blur).

Finally, we invite you to visit Japan through the critical glances of some of its most provocative photographers.

Do you dare to get an unusual look on things?

Pierre Verger. Un viaje fotográfico por la España republicana (1935)

Until the 1st of September
MuVIM, Calle de Quevedo 10
Fee: 2 euros

We keep travelling through photography and now we go back to Europe.

This time we enter the MuVIM, to explore the Mediterranean coast, from Portbou to Cádiz.

Thanks to the work of the French photographer Pierre Verger, we go back to 1935 to travel with him to different Spanish cities. Among them, Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, Elche, Lorca, Granada, Seville, Malaga, etc.

With his Rolleiflex camera and by bicycle, Verger went across Republican Spain, portraying people, streets, landscapes and scenes of popular folklore.
If you want to take a journey to the past in black and white, do not miss this occasion!

And if you still want more photographic journeys, we recommend you again to visit the European Puzzle exhibition, by Christophe Béchet, at the Center for Contemporary Culture of Carmen.

To finish, we remind you that several celebrations will be occurring this weeekend in the framework of the Great Fair of Valencia.

This Saturday night, the most emblematic museums and monuments of the city will open for free their doors to visitors.

Somemuseum, such as the Bancaja Foundation and the CCCC, will remain open until 00:00.

Others,such as La Lonja and L’Almodì, will even be open until 01:00.

And there will even be others, such as the MuVIM or the Museum of Ethnology, which will extend their opening hours until 02:00.

To consult the complete list of museums, we invite you to visit the official webpage of the event.

We hope this blog has helped you plan your photographic journeys.

From our school the El Rincón del Tándem in Valencia we invite you to spend a nice weekend learning Spanish in a fun and entertaining way.

Have a good weekend!
