EXIT #05 – This is a party

Photography hasn’t tended towards capturing fun and happy events unless done in the form of parody. The party, the chance to celebrate a joyful event, to get together with friends and family, to laugh, dance, eat and have a good time... is not a very a common subject in classical or current art and photography, capturing instead painful rather than cheerful moments. It is as if the defining moments in life are also terrible. But celebration and parties also exist and mark our lives.

Any reason is a good one to come together and have a good time, to get dressed up and go dancing, to approach someone with all the right intentions. A party can be just for two or for a thousand people. From a rave party to a wedding, or a regular Saturday night out on the town, from a picnic to a birthday meal, celebrating the victory of our sports team to a perverse orgy, New Year’s Eve to the start of spring... Everything can be celebrated.

Parties, celebrations, get-togethers, fun and festive times are the subjects that make up the works of different artists presented in this edition of EXIT #5 This is a party!

Special attention is paid to the works of Spanish artist Cristina García Rodero along with many others, including classic and anonymous artists to the most renown in current photography with the likes of Paul M. Smith, Massimo Vitali, Andreas Gursky, Yutaka Sone, Miguel Trillo, Jeff Wall, Yasumasa Morimura, Nan Goldin, Eugènia Balcells, Erwin Olaf, Robert Capa, Mario Giacomelli, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Tina Barney, Ricardo B. Sánchez, Malick Sidibé, Charlie White, Rafael Trobat, Elaine Constantine, Marina del Mar, Jessica Craig Martin, Juan González, Mikel McAlinden, Bernard Faucon, Virxilio Viéitez, Xurxo Lobato, Cruz Mejías, Llúcia Mundet... and all of those who have joined together for this private yet massive party, accompanied by texts from Victoria Soto, Rosa Olivares and Pedro Azara.
