On July 28, a retrospective exhibition of the Canarian artist Concha Jerez (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1941) was inaugurated at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.

JUAN IRIBARREN: SCALAMANDRE-PFIZER - PHOTOGRAPHS, PAINTINGS AND PRINTED IMAGES
The last exhibition by Juan Iribarren Scalamandre-Pfizer, which took place at the Carmen Araujo Arte Gallery in Caracas, was a "visual essay", a work that brought together different "means" and "ways" of image production, and took the form of an exercise (and also a game) of connections: coming and going, confluences and dispersions. A “visual essay” that, on the one hand, manages to synthesize in an “event” a large part of the artist's pictorial interests, and on the other, narrates a transit, a move.
