Within the program Es Baluard Image Research, a stable program of the museum focused on the study and analysis of the evolution of the image throughout the history of art through masterclass, seminars, courses and artistic missions for specialists or groups interested in the continuous training, Es Baluard organizes a new masterclass.
On this occasion we invited the renowned photographer Javier Vallhonrat, with work in the museum collection, who on November 3 will introduce us to the complexity of his work and propose a practical exercise with the subscribers.
The methodology of the masterclass will thus have two parts: a theoretical, in which the photographer will introduce and review his work, making a review of his artistic career. In addition, it will analyze and monitor the theoretical and conceptual elements of the project notebook. Once the theoretical exposition is finished, a practical exercise will be done.
The price of the registration is 30 euros (10% discount Amics Es Baluard) and places are limited.
