From the month of June and within the Photoespaña22 photography festival
you can visit a beautiful exhibition by the photographer Miguel Vallinas at the
San Rafael Hospital in Madrid as a guest venue.
This is an exhibition organized by the [H]ARTE Foundation as part of its work
to humanize Spanish hospitals through the organization of art exhibitions and
workshops in healthcare spaces.
Undoubtedly, it is a very special exhibition not only because of the quality of
the works but also because of the space in which they are shown and which
has been widely accepted by the patients and their families as well as by all
The 22 works that make up the exhibition correspond to the Ceci n’est Pas
collection in which Miguel makes surrealist portraits with his inexhaustible
imagination in which the heads of those portrayed are exchanged for objects
The reaction of the people who see the photographs in the hospital corridor is
really fantastic, they choose their favorite portrait, they comment on the
objects and the costumes of the portraits and they have an impact on
everyone who sees them; about 1,500 people pass through the hospital
corridor every day.
Our dear Miguel Vallinas visited the exhibition the other day and was moved
by the effect of the works in the hospital, which he verified while chatting with
the people who were in the hospital. We really like to support this wonderful
work and we encourage you to visit the website of the [H]ARTE Foundation to
learn more about their work.
