The exhibition will be on view until May 17th which will close with a special performance by Jesús Carmona and with a live fragment of his show Impetu’s. Corrientes: Movement with Purpose is presented as part of the 4th edition of FlamenGO, the exhibition is a tribute to Flamenco, its culture and all its disciplines.
The view includes the Art video “Impetu’s: Flamenco’s driving force”, 9 large format photographs (60 x 40 inches) and 15 medium format photographs (36 x 24 inches).
The exhibition stems from the 5-minute film by audiovisual artist, Lulo Rivero, called Impetu’s: Flamenco’s Driving Force, where the dancer is presented as the film’s protagonist. Lulo Rivero’s short film was selected and awarded at film festivals in cities such as Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Utah and in countries such as The Netherlands, Bulgaria and Colombia.
In addition to printed still frames and short clips, the exhibition includes 25 photographic works taken during the video shoot process and captured through the lens of a synergistic team of talented artists; Photographers, Luis Olazábal, Osmany Torres and Ricardo Cornejo. They were inspired to enrich the outlook of Carmona’s artistic show, Impetu’s, which is now touring the United States.
