Revela-T 2014 festival will take place from May 30th till June 1st. I’ll make again Vilassar de Dalt the world’s capital of analogue photography.
When we were making the last arrangements for the first edition of Revela-T, back in 2013, the organization made a little-big discovery: the analogue photography festival in Vilassar de Dalt was the only one with this characteristics in the world. That’s why on the first experience the main authorities in this field all over the world showed their interest (and some of them even visited us). This 2014 edition will maintain this exceptionality, but it’ll increase the number of authors and the volume of offers in order to become not just a unique reference in this field as well as a great opportunity for general public to rediscover photography.
The exhibitions will be again the big issue of this festival which will host, between others, the analogue holdings of two of the most well established galleries in Barcelona, Valid Foto and Tagomago, as well as exhibits from well-known artists as Salvi Danés, Paola de Grenet, Andrei Farcasanu, Xose Gago, Josep Guiolà, Salva López, Ignasi López, Montse López, Ricard Martínez, Lola Montserrat, Aleix Plademunt, J.Mª Ribas Prous, Lea Tyrallovà, Juan Diego Valera, Berta Vicente, Roman Yñan… There’ll be also workshops, seminars and demonstrations from people such as Ian Wolf, Quinn Jacobson or Juan Manuel Castro Prieto.
To this compendium of exhibitions and workshops we have to add activities and offers that complement the program on a more popular and fun, beyond its specialized character unequivocally: a meeting of wet-plate photographers and box camera users, workshops at the schools (with an exhibition afterwards), the shops of Vilassar de Dalt will host around thirty small exhibitions at their storefronts, a “Fotomercat” (market) were amateurs and professionals will have the opportunity to show and sell their works, and at Parc de Can Rafart there’ll be a commercial fair with 21 tents for different brands and collectives, as well as hosting its own and “analogue” fun fair for children, popular meals and concerts.
On top of this, the special even of this second edition of Festival Revela-T will be the creation by photographer Faustí Llucià, of a large camera obscura in one of the most emblematic building of Vilassar, where visitors will be able to view from inside the camera, the pinhole miracle.
