MAPFRE Foundation Garriga i Nogués exhibition hall - Brassaï

From 20 February at Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall in Barcelona, you can admire the work of one of the masters of 20th century photography: Brassaï. Brassaï was one of the most prominent members of the group of European and American photographers whose work between the two world wars redefined photography's identity and enriched its potential as a means of artistic expression.
The current show traces his career using over two hundred examples of his work. Curated by Peter Galassi, chief curator of the Photography Department of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York between 1991 and 2011, this represents the first retrospective exhibition of Brassaï organized since the year 2000 (Centre Pompidou) and the first in Spain since 1993.
