From January 21 to April 2, 2023, Foundation A will host Shadow lines, the most complete exhibition in Belgium on the work of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, from the 1970s to the present. The exhibition gathers more than a hundred images, at the border of the everyday and the marvelous, and offers a new look at the work of the most renowned Latin American photographer, winner of the W. Eugene Smith (1987) and Hasselblad (2003) awards. Eugene Smith (1987) and Hasselblad (2008) awards.
From the portraits of women in Juchitán, which made her internationally known, to the Seri Indians of the Sonora desert, from the Naturata series, made in the botanical garden of Oaxaca, to the arid and depopulated feelings of the southern United States, Graciela Iturbide captures the magic in the ordinary.
Nature and animals, landscapes, strange or familiar objects, symbols and traditions... The exhibition dedicated to her at the Fondation A covers all the research carried out by the artist during her travels, and reveals, in its multiple forms, the metaphysical link that unites the artist to her environment.
Through this exhibition, the Fondation A pursues its vocation of supporting the knowledge of the photographic image and participates in the influence of projects that question and enlighten our contemporary societies.
