Art Madrid'24 – Alberto García-Alix arrives to MUSAC with Shadows of the Wind

 

 

This October arrives at MUSAC (Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y Leon) Leon the solo exhibition of the photographer Alberto Garcia-Alix, curated by Nicolas Combarro. The exhibition, entitled "Shadows of the Wind", will focus on two of his most recurrent themes: the bike and portraits. The inauguration will take place on October 3 and, with this project, the MUSAC celebrates its tenth anniversary, and builds a bridge between the present and the past, based on two photo books published by García-Alix in 1993: Bikers and Los Malheridos, Los bienamados y los Traidores.

 

 

 

Alberto Garcia-Alix (León, 1956), National Award of Photography in 1999, lover of social portrait and motorcycles, is a key figure in the famous "Movida", Madrid´s cultural movement in which he portrayed a hundred personalities, family and friends.

 

In the exhibition you can see the evolution of García-Alix in photographic technique and treatment of these two elements that have been a constant in his artistic life. In his most recent works, we can see the passage of time and the evolution of the way toward abstraction and allegory.

 

 

 

 

 

The work of Alberto Garcia-Alix has been many times in MUSAC. With the exhibition "Emergencies" the museum opened on April 1, 2005. Three years ago Leon also enjoyed the "biographies" of the photographs from the museum's collection.

 

The artist, who has spent nearly 40 years devoted to photography, thinks that "the portrait requires a great capacity for understanding, which forces everyone to understand oneself. Portraying means paying attention to your surroundings, to other people, yourself. Many times I have felt the desire to put me to mourn in front of the camera, try to express, only with his eyes, feeling the passage of time ".

 

 

 

Through photographs, the viewer can interfere in the universe of García-Alix and take a tour of metaphors, absence and presence of the author.
