‘PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE MIDDLE’ (IVAM collection after 1950)

‘Photography in the middle’ (IVAM Collection after 1950) proposes a particular approach to contemporary photography and its role in artistic practices from the 1950s to the present day. The exhibition was initially created for the IVAM’s headquarters in Alcoi, where it remained from November 2021 to April 2022. It is now travelling to the Centre Julio González (Valencia), where it will remain until 2 June 2024, adapted to the unique space of the IVAM’s Gallery 7, but maintaining the same aesthetic-conceptual pillars on which the discourse of the original exhibition was based.

The definition of photography as “in-between“, highlights the use of photography and imagery for different means, it can be a visual resource for different contexts such as cinema or advertising. The exhibition shows photography as an instrument of artistic communication. Through narrative and concept, the exhibition reflects the diverse scope of photography in relation to art. Photography has the quality of revealing and documenting the world; it can narrate and sometimes invent stories.

Works from pop art, conceptual art, post-modernism, body art, performance, staged photography, the new photographic objectivity of the late 20th century, and the revision of documentary art and the more recent use of digital images make up the variety of artistic essences included in this exhibition. The collection brings together works by many artists and international figures.
