Born in Baltimore in 1948, Susan Meiselas is considered to be one of the biggest names in photojournalism. The retrospective exhibition that the Fundació Antoni Tàpies is devoting to her work, which will run from 10 October to 14 January, is, perhaps the most exhaustive ever, at least on the Iberian Peninsula. Susan Meiselas. Mediations is curated by Carles Guerra i Pia Viewing and co-produced by the Jeu de Paume.

Meiselas made her name with her front cover photographs of conflicts and crises in Central America in the 1970s and 80s. However, her career has taken her into multiple fields and issues and one example of this is a series titled Carnival Strippers, featuring photographs and interviews with small town carnival strippers in New England, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. Meiselas is said to reconsider her approach with regard to the particularities of each of her projects in order to reflect better the full scale of the personal and geopolitical realities she is depicting.

Coinciding with the official opening of the exhibition, at 7pm on Tuesday 10 October, Eduardo Cadava, professor at Princeton University, will present the lecture Learning to See.
