A photography project linked to the exhibition Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain.
The title highlights the overlap in time among the participants, who also share a creative affinity: some, as photographers; others, as visual artists. The project is a present-day extrapolation of the artistic and generational confluence that occurred in Great Britain at the London restaurant called The Barcelona, the meeting point of the surrealists, and Farley Farm, in Sussex, where Lee Miller and Roland Penrose lived.
The personal contact and conversations of each artist-photographer pair are transformed into photo essays and an exhibition of portraits of the artists at the Fundació Joan Miró.
Participants: second-year photography program students at the EASD Serra i Abella school of art and design (L’Hospitalet del Llobregat); artists with a master’s degree in art production and research from the University of Barcelona’s Faculty of Fine Arts.
From October 2018 to January 2019
Exhibition: From 8 to 20 January 2019
Artistic Coordinator: Serafín Álvarez
