"Colita, perquè sí!", in La Pedrera

The retrospective of the Barcelona-born photographer can be seen from the 11th of March to the 13th of July

Throughout her career as an artist, Isabel Steva Hernández has been known as Colita, a pseudonym synonymous with one of the most renowned Catalan photographers of recent decades. Predominantly linked to Barcelona’s Gauche Divine movement, during the sixties and early seventies she demonstrated a particular interest for dance photography, especially flamenco. She has also held numerous exhibitions of portraits of artists and singers of the Nova Cançó era, such as Joan Manuel Serrat, Guillermina Motta and Nuría Feliu, to the point where she is considered one of the best portrait specialists of the genre.

Colita, perquè sí! (Colita, just because) can be viewed in La Pedrera has been curated by Laura Terré and is the first retrospective dedicated to Colita to include works from the different stages of her career, from the aforementioned portraits to the feminist struggle, cinema, and life in Barcelona during the transition period, where the transformation of the urban landscape is more than evident. The exhibition opens on the 11th of March and can be seen up until the 13th of July.

Colita was awarded the Gold Medal for Artistic Merit by the Barcelona City Council in 1998 and the Creu de Sant Jordi by the Generalitat de Catalunya in 2004.
