19 Oct 201711 Mar 2018

“La Parte Más Bella / The Most Beautiful Part” brings together 115 black and white photographs of 64 artists, vintage and contemporary prints (silver on gelatin, solarizations, photogravure, collages and photomontages, among other techniques) from the 20th and 21st centuries. All having in common the theme of the human body and belonging to the collection of Pedro Slim (Beirut, Lebanon, 1950).
The show is divided into themes that stand out in the collection, from stylized studio compositions to experimental impressions, as well as crude and violent descriptions of life in New York in the eighties. The images show a love for the human form – woman and man, heterosexual and homosexual, perfect and imperfect – in all its elegance, eroticism and vulnerability.
