The New York Times Magazine Photographs
The Palau Robert in Barcelona shall play host to the exhibition The New York Times Magazine Photographs from 28 September to 2 December, which reflects upon the nature of photography and the role played by print magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution.
The exhibition is co-curated by Kathy Ryan, photo editor of The New York Times Magazine, and Lesley A. Martin, publisher of Aperture Books. It has been organised by the Palau Robert, the Aperture Foundation, a pioneer institution dedicated to serve photography worldwide, and the company Canopia, Aperture’s exclusive representative in Spain, which is dedicated to the integrated management of cultural projects and firmly established in the sector thanks to its work in disseminating photography.
The public can enjoy more than 130 works by 35 renowned artists.
The New York Times Magazine, undoubtedly a point of reference for contemporary photography in the media, has become a space of freedom for photographers at large. For over thirty years, the publication has explored the myriad possibilities and applications of photography. Kathy Ryan, photo editor of The New York Times Magazine and curator of this exhibition, provides a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the magazine’s creative processes: contact sheets, snapshots, videos, the editor’s personal correspondence, tear sheets and original magazines. The exhibition is sponsored by Banco Sabadell. It was presented recently at the latest edition of the photo festival Les Rencontres d’Arles and at the Foam Museum of Photography in Amsterdam.
Barcelona’s Palau Robert is an exhibition centre run by the Government of Catalonia. With more than one thousand square metres devoted to its activities, the centre is housed in a neoclassical building at the junction of Avinguda Diagonal and Passeig de Gràcia, two of the most important thoroughfares in the Catalan capital. The building also houses a Tourism Office, where qualified staff provide information about the whole of Catalonia.
