The María Cristina Masaveu Peterson Foundation and the Spanish Cultural Center in Miami (CCEMiami), in collaboration with Barry University Department of English and Foreign Languages and the Studio for Languages and Cultures present the exhibition Visions of Asturias, which will be on view outside Barry University from February 8 through May 7, 2023. This is the second tour of this international exhibition, which was presented for the first time in 2022 outside the Spanish Cultural Center in Washington, thanks to the collaboration of the Foundation with the Embassy of Spain in the United States.
Visions of Asturias is a longstanding project of the Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson. This patronage project, started up in 2012, involves commissioning acclaimed Spanish photographers, all winners of the National Photography Prize, to produce artistic work on the subject of the Asturias region and its peoples. The photographers are granted complete freedom and the unique works they create are incorporated into the Foundation’s art collection.
The exhibition reproduces, with full respect for the original works, a selection of more than twenty photographs by four of the photographers who have taken part in this initiative: Alberto García-Alix, José Manuel Ballester, Ouka Leele, and Chema Madoz. These pieces illustrate each photographer’s distinctive and personal vision of this particular region in northern Spain.
