"Alberto Garcia-Alix: Tell Me Words Of Love In Spanish"
2002-04-18 until 2002-05-24
Modern Culture At The Gershwin Hotel
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Tell Me Words Of Love In Spanish will consist of Alberto Garcia-Alix's intensely passionate, photographic views of Madrid and the unique personalities who have been inhabiting the Spanish capital during and since the post-Franco era, known as La Movida. This exhibition of silver gelatin prints from the late 1980's to the present aims to examine the role of the artist as both participant and creator of the culture-at-large from its earliest stages on the fringes of society to its evolved stages within the mainstream.

Tell Me Words Of Love In Spanish will include portraits of Rossy de Palma (star of the films of Pedro Almodovar), Johnny Thunders, and Martin Kippenberger.

Alberto Garcia-Alix is the winner of the 1999 National Photography Prize of Spain. Mr. Garcia-Alix is the foremost photographer to emerge from Spain's La Movida, the post-Franco era of free, and often flamboyant, individual expression. A devotee of motorcycles and tattoos and an aficionado of underground art, Mr. Garcia-Alix is also a publisher of poetry books and the cultural journal, El Canto de la Tripulación.

Mr. Garcia-Alix's work has been exhibited in Madrid, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Manchester, Havana, and Manila. In 1998, a survey exhibition of his career to-date was presented at El Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid during the inaugural edition of, PHotoEspana, Madrid's annual photography festival. Mr. Garcia-Alix's work is in the collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; the Museo Espanol de Arte Contemporaneo, Madrid; the Banco Caja de Burgos, Burgos; the Banesto Bank, Madrid; Coca-Cola Spain, Madrid, and other prominent institutions.

This will be Mr. Garcia-Alix's first exhibition in North America. IMAGE:
