Exhibitions. The Virreina Centre de la Imatge is offering an exhibition on the rise of a generation of photographers who sought recognition for photography as an art form.

From the opening of Spectrum, the first gallery in Spain to specialise in photography, inaugurated in Barcelona in 1973, to the Primavera Fotogràfica (Springtime of Photography) in Barcelona in 1982, this exhibition presents the rise of a generation of photographers who demanded recognition for ‘creative’ or fine art photography as an art in its own right within the institutional and artistic system.

The display includes work by the likes of Pere Formiguera, Manel Esclusa, Joan Fontcuberta, Marta Sentís, Tony Keeler, Manolo Laguillo, Lluís Casals, Jordi García, Ferran Freixa, Humberto Rivas, Josep Rigol, Manel Armengol, Maria Espeus, Mariano Zunzunaga, Toni Catany, Manel Úbeda, Eduard Olivella, Bigas Luna, América Sánchez and Marta Povo.

Admission is free, and free guided tours of the exhibition are being offered on Tuesdays at 6 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays at noon.

Aquesta mostra presenta el sorgiment d´una generació de fotògrafs que van reivindicar el reconeixement de la fotografia «creativa» o d´autor com un art autònom dins del sistema institucional i artístic dels anys setanta i principis dels vuitanta. Abraça des de l´obertura de Spectrum, la primera galeria especialitzada en fotografia de l´Estat espanyol, que es va inaugurar a Barcelona el 1973, fins a la celebració de la Primavera Fotogràfica el 1982.
