What is PHotoEspaña?

PHotoEspaña, International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, set out to become a Festival generated by popular demand in 1998, and today it has earned its place as one of the most relevant visual arts events in the world. PHotoEspaña is one of the central international forums for photography. Each year the Festival attracts more than seven hundred thousand people and receives acclaim from prestigious critics, making it the most popular cultural event in Spain.

The Festival is an exceptional occasion for discovering images, videos and installations created by outstanding national and international photographers and visual artists. Since the first edition of the Festival, more than 1.000 exhibitions have been hosted in the city’s main museums, art centres and galleries. The shows are complemented by pedagogic and professional programs designed for diverse audiences.

PHotoEspaña 2016, the 19th edition of the International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, will take place from June 1 to August 28, 2016. It will be dedicated in its entirety to European photography, in line with the approach initiated in 2014 of focusing on a specific geographic region.

PHotoEspaña is organized by La Fábrica, a company dedicated to arts management. The Festival is made possible thanks to the support and collaboration of private companies and public institutions.
