Renato D'Agostin
“Etna“

Photography Exhibition / 4th – 28th March 2014


The Exhibition

“Etna” is a visual poem that goes beyond the limits of photography, opening our perception towards a rhythmic counterpoint in which music demands to be seen.

MONDO GALERIA presents “Etna,” the homonymous exhibition to celebrate the fifth book of the author of the ‘Venetian Photographer,’ Renato D’Agostin. It is an honor to present this book, exquisitely designed by Tankboys (Venezia) and co-produced by MONDO GALERIA Madrid along with MC2 Gallery of Milano and Nomadic Editions. This third publication of Renato D’Agostin proves his quality as an author of projects focused on the poetry of movement, light, dreams and the majesty of photography.

Esta exposición es posible gracias al apoyo y colaboración de

MONDO GALERIA, in collaboration with the United States Embassy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Spain, presents Marilyn and Me and More: America and the 60s. As the first photography exhibition of Marilyn Monroe by Lawrence Schiller in Spain, the exhibition will include footage of Marilyn naked in the pool during the filming of the movie “Something’s Got to Give.”

From May 7th to July 15th, 2013, MONDO GALERIA presents Marilyn and Me and More: America and the 60s, a tour of the work of famous New York photographer Lawrence Schiller which illustrates the famous actress that was his focus at many points in his career.

Schiller is famous for taking the nude photographs of Marilyn Monroe in the pool during the filming of “Something’s got to give,” in 1960, a film that Marilyn was later dismissed from. Photographer Larry Schiller was one of the last people to see the actress alive. He visited her at her house on the morning of her death in order to approve photographs.

In the photographer’s own words, “Marilyn Monroe knew photography a little more than I did then. All the great photographers had photographed her. She was very professional. She knew what she wanted and how to appear in photographs. I knew how their expressions should be.” says the American photographer.

Schiller first portrayed Marilyn Monroe when he was 23, on the set of “Let’s Make Love” (1960). He returned to photograph her two years later in 1962. This was when he took the pool scene nudes of “Something’s got to give.” No one expected it, but suddenly she removed her bikini. According to Schiller, “Marilyn was every photographer’s dream with clothes on. Even more so without,” he says. He remembers that night, her eyes were bright and her skin glowed. Marilyn wanted to get the audience’s attention because she was jealous of Elizabeth Taylor, with whom the film studio had focused their attention while promoting the movie ‘Cleopatra.’

MONDO GALERÍA presenta en Madrid "La intimidad"el último proyecto de César Ordóñez.

En MONDO GALERÍA buscamos generar un debate sobre el arte, la cultura y la sociedad a través de la fotografía. Es nuestra fuerza de empuje y lo que nos define.


Esperamos con ahínco las críticas, y los comentarios desafiantes. Esperamos que la cultura sea un diálogo más que un dictado, una propuesta más que una imposición.


Es por esto que para esta exposición "La Intimidad" de César Ordóñez nos pareció oportuno invitar al comisario y Director de Contenidos y Exposiciones de Gloria Transmedia José Reguera (que como el fotógrafo ha vivido en Japón) para contraponer dos visiones de una misma idea aplicadas a un mismo terreno.


De este ejercicio deriva el texto de introducción y la selección de fotografías que componen la exposición que inauguramos el día 13 de Marzo 2013 en nuestro espacio de Madrid y podrá verse hasta el 4 de Abril.
