La nueva Instagramers Gallery en la Fundación Telefónica de Madrid

The new Instagramers Gallery at Telefonica Foundation in Madrid

.

.

From mobile phone to the internet and thence to the walls of Espacio Fundación Telefónica in Madrid. This was the route of the images that make up the first ‘Instagramers Gallery’ in Europe. 

.

The exhibition comprises photos taken by smartphones and selected by a team of experts. All the images have one thing in common, their source: the social network Instagram.

We wanted to showcase social art but without losing sight of technological identity. This is an exhibition that reflects the opportunities that technology brings to the world of photography and its dissemination on the social networks. The Telefónica Foundation – which has featured artists such as Chema Madoz, Joan Fontcuberta and Vik Muniz – opens us to these new artists.

The project is coordinated by Philippe González, the founder of the worldwide network of Instagram fans known as Instagramers (aka @igers), and the Instagramers Gallery, which opened at Espacio Fundación Telefónica in 2014.

.Instagramers and the Telefónica Foundation were the first to transfer the potential of the Instagram to a physical space. We don’t just want to reflect what is on the social networks; the Gallery is a selection of the best there is on Instagram. Not everything comes up to scratch.

.

Phil González, the founder of the Instagramers Gallery, explains that his project “originated with the goal of becoming the world’s first virtual gallery of mobile photography and a potential benchmark exhibition space for thousands of talented mobile phone photographers. The Telefónica Foundation has enabled us to go one step further by opening the first Gallery in Madrid. It’s a great honor for us to be able to count on their support for the global Instagramers Gallery project,” he adds.

Would you like to exhibit your photos?

.

The exhibition comprises a permanent section of around twenty artists and another temporary section which is themed in relation to other exhibitions taking place in the Espacio and Telefónica Foundation projects. Keep an eye on our social networks (@igersgallery), blog and exhibitions for information on the contests you can take part in. Every few months we will propose a theme and a hashtag to give you the chance to form part of the Gallery. A team of professionals will evaluate the quality and originality of the images that will eventually make up the physical exhibition in Espacio Fundación Telefónica.

.

You can also enjoy a coffee, a drink, a healthy salad…. while you are visiting the #igersgallerymadrid and and visit the other exhibitions at Espacio Fundación Telefónica. You will be amazed of the ever changing cultural and artistic offer that the Foundation has to offer you.
