-‘World Press Photo Barcelona 18’, the world’s most important photojournalism exhibition, commended for both the quality of the photographs and for the debate that they encourage, can be visited at the Barcelona Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB) until 27th May. The 137 pictures will show current affairs through the eyes of photojournalists.

The International Composition Course will take place this Friday 18th May at 8.00pm, and a joint concert between the OBC and the Ensemble Intercontemporani will be held over the weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, where they will play ‘La Cuarta de Mahier’.

-‘Against the tide. Half a century of Valencian female artists’ is the new exhibition brought to you by the Valencia Institute of Modern Art (IVAM), and recreates the path that Valencian female artists have had to take to achieve visibility and professionalisation, starting with the Primo de Rivera dictatorship and the Second Republic, continuing with the Franco Regime, and ending with the 1980s.

– ‘Experiencia del coleccionismo familiar. La Modernidad en el Sur‘, from the Boti Llanes collection, invites you to appreciate different insights of artists whose work reveals the innovative aspects of their contributions and the way in which many of their ideas have withstood the test of time. You can visit the exhibition at the Casa de América in Madrid.

-‘Paco Gómez Dossier. The poetical moment and the architectural image’ brings you over 150 images and other materials such as magazines and periodicals. Francisco Gomez is considered a singular member of the group of photographers who redefined Spanish photography in the 1950s. The exhibition is open until June 17th at Foto Colectania in Barcelona.
