This event has ended.

“Los Caprichos - Instagraphy - 2017” features a new edition of the original works created between the 1960s and early 1980s presented together with previously unreleased images and a sequel shot between 2016 and 2017. Kikuji Kawada was so inspired by Goya’s “Los Caprichos” that he found himself roaming the streets to pay homage to the fanciful engravings. Employing a snapshot aesthetic, along with the occasional multiple exposure, he began to scour scenes from everyday life and shadowy urban sprawls for equally fantastical imagery. The result is a powerful yet dire commentary on everything from social unrest to the end of days. New archival pigment prints were produced from the original negatives for this exhibition.
