Venezuela, your look tells our identity

It will continue until June, within the framework of Movilnet's 32nd anniversary

A profound observation of our landscapes beyond the image, proposes the exhibition Venezuela, your look that is shown until next June in room 8 of the Armando Reverón Museum of Contemporary Art of Caracas (Maccar).

As part of the commemorative activities for its 32nd anniversary, the state telephone company Movilnet, in alliance with the Country Brand, decided to take to the museum the exhibition that is part of a corporate campaign aimed at positioning the Venezuelan affirmative on its social networks, under the need to express that “we are as Venezuelan as you.”

On this occasion, the idea is to offer the perspective of 24 photographers, new and veteran, and 48 images with their particular way of contrasting the national imagination with the environment.

It is a journey through physical and spiritual geography, which includes dizzying traces of sunsets, crossroads, desolate landscapes, spontaneous gestures in the street and reflections on the puddles of a city as fickle as Caracas, proposed by the renowned photographer Félix Gerardi.

Dikó, Cacica Honta, Marcelo Volpe, Manu Rodríguez, Giuliano Salvatore, María Gracia Lacruz, Maxwell Briceño, are some of the photographers invited to the exhibition, with whom Movilnet also offers a generational perspective of the country, which its president, Aníbal Briceño, qualifies as a success to the extent that it is an experience that opens the way to bring technologies together with people. “This is not just a frame, a shot. It goes further. It is the daily life, the work, the feeling of a people.”

María Gabriela Parra, general manager of Corporate and Institutional Communications at Movilnet, assured that the exhibition seeks to project various ways of narrating our identity thanks to photographers, authentic artists who decide to believe in the talent and beauty of the country.

“That is what this exhibition is: seeing ourselves from different perspectives, different approaches, and saying that we are proud of who we are through the poetics of photography,” he stated.
Gerardi, for his part, highlighted the importance of exhibitions of this type emerging in the midst of the orgy of images that social networks and mobile devices are generating. “That means that we are separating ourselves from that tangle that is circulating, photographs without any type of organization.”
