Fundación Canal is pleased to introduce the exhibition “Al descubierto. Obras seleccionadas de The Howard Greenberg Gallery (Discovered. Select Works from The Howard Greenberg Gallery).” This collection shows a fascinating selection of 111 photographs from one of the world’s leading photography archives, The Howard Greenberg Gallery (New York). This exhibition grants you the exceptional opportunity to discover images from prominent masters of photography that are normally not available to the public. It also takes you on a unique journey through 20th-century photography.

Al descubierto” includes works by 66 greats, like Berenice Abbott, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Diane Arbus, Bruce Davidson, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Eugène Atget, Robert Capa, Elliott Erwitt, Helmut Newton, Vivian Maier, and Man Ray, traveling through time from 1900 to the early 21st century.

Howard Greenberg, a must as a standard of 20th-century photography, has spent over 40 years creating an archive with more than 30,000 photographs.  In this exhibition, the visitor experiences how the items in an archive can be interconnected in several different ways. Based on how the images borne of the curator’s personal vision have been grouped, visitors can make their own connections and associations between photos and groups of images, creating the story of their own choice.
