Muquiranas (João Farkas)
João Farkas has been documenting for over 30 years the relationship between the society and their context, whether through popular costumes, culture and festivity, or whether the landscapes and the impacts caused by human existence in some regions of Brazil. His last photographs take the portrait as a focus of interest, in this special series The Muquiranas, relate to his previous series Caretas de Maragojipe, not only for its formal structure – portrait against a simple striking background – but also because both series document a collective creative process, where the individual creativity, guided by a common rule or pattern, multiplies itself endlessly by fellow’s stimulus. During Carnival, men dress as women since Carnival became the great popular celebration during XIX century. All over Brazil groups (blocos) of men costumed like that for the festivity days proliferate. The biggest of them all is the Muquiranas that gathers over 4.000 members in frenzy, dancing on the streets of Salvador – Bahia, Brazil. His work has been selected to participate in solo and group shows, highlighting: ICP – International Center of Photography, New York, USA; MASP – Museu de Arte de São Paulo, Brazil; The Latin American Library (Tulane University), New Orleans, USA; Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Brazil; MIS – Museu da Imagem e do Som, São Paulo, Brazil; MAR. Museu de Arte do Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; among others.
El Coleccionista (Joaquín Lalanne )
Joaquín Lalanne grew up in Uruguay and nowadays lives and works in Cadaqués (Spain). His artworks include diverse references, from Baroque to Pop Art, while claiming art’s role as a space for freedom of speech. His paintings contain drops of classicism, comics and cartoons, transforming supposedly antagonistic characters and landscapes in a connected composition. Lalanne has the ability to design spaces in which the scale and superposition of elements achieve a surrealistic and metaphysical aura. He excels at detail, perspective and light. By presenting, pictorially, in his canvases, the imprint of his peculiar vision of the world, based on a dialectic between classical philosophy and the current daily chaos, mixing imagination and irony, Lalanne takes us to his genuine and original universe. His work has been selected to participate in solo and group shows, highlighting: Fundación Pablo Atchugarry, Punta del Este, Uruguay; Antiguo Convento de la Merced, Ciudad Real, Spain; among others.

Since then, his work has been displayed in solo exhibitions in galleries, contemporary art centres and museums in Montevideo, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Seville, Salamanca, Figueres, Paris, Rotterdam, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles, among other cities.
