'Transitional Bodies'

'Transitional Bodies'

Presented as part of FotoWeekDC 2012, this exhibition curated by Fabián Goncalves features the works of 17 Iberoamerican emerging photographers.

Transitional Bodies / Cuerpos en Transición presents cutting-edge artists from Latin America, Portugal and Spain that move away from the typical stereotypes and propose provocative, modern vanguard photography.

Along those lines, the Iberoamerican Cultural Attachés Association has been participating for the last four years in the annual FotoweekDC Festival, giving the opportunity to photographers in Latin America, the US and Europe to showcase their work in what is a fast changing photography scene.

Curator of the exhibition Fabián Goncalves highlights, Transitional Bodies proposes a glance at different point of views of the Iberoamerican photographic techniques from transition to transformation of the human body. Grouped in different series this exhibition does not intend to represent Iberoamerica, but to express in great part its cultural eclecticism.
