Photography exhibition

Isabel Muñoz
“The Anthropology of Feelings”

5 – 25 April 2019
Sala de Cultura Sa Nostra
S’arraval, 32. 07701, Mahón, Menorca

As part of the second Trobades Mediterrànies Albert Camus, 2016 winner of Spain’s National Photography Award Isabel Muñoz will present, for the first time in Menorca, a selection from the photographic series that most represent her current artistic work.

“The Anthropology of Feelings” is the title of this exhibition curated by Audrey Hoareau and François Cheval, co-founders of The Red Eye.

The exhibition, co-organized by Mahón Town Council and with the participation of Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, plots a journey, in twenty photographs, around the obsessive and heterogeneous representation of the human body – from the very origins of humanity –, its spirituality, its limits and extremes, and its social dimension.

Taken as a whole, the photographs in this exhibition form a collection that is extremely powerful, yet also fragile, with the human being as its central focus. Muñoz’s artistic work, like that of Camus, is steeped in humanism and the search for a hard-won freedom. Struggles, battles, revolts – these watchwords sit at the very core of this second Trobades Literàries Mediterrànies Albert Camus; they are also at the heart of this exhibition.

Gonzalo Rubalcaba Trío

Teatre Principal de Maó
Menorca International Jazz Festival

Pianist and composer Gonzalo Rubalcaba was already a young musician with a budding career in his native Cuba when he was discovered in 1985 by Dizzie Gillespie, another jazz great. In 1999, he was named as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century by Piano & Keyboard Magazine, alongside names such as Glenn Gould, Martha Argerich and Bill Evans.

Gonzalo Rubalcaba, who we are delighted to welcome once again to the main theatre of Maó, won two Grammies and two Latin Grammies between 2001 and 2006. It was at this point that he firmly established himself as a creative force in the jazz world.
