Don Pedro has it all – high position, wealth, a beautiful family – and enjoys the good life in the heart of the Spanish capital. But now he faces a challenge that would test the patience of a saint. It is time to marry off his daughters. It’s bad enough that his eldest Beatriz is both obsessed by the latest fashions and talks like a university professor, but his youngest Leonor is already enjoying illicit midnight trysts with her lover and is in no mood to accept an arranged marriage. Throw into this explosive mix the extravagant young man about town, Don Alonso, who thinks all women, like all plays, are excellent on the first night and boring on the second, and you have the recipe for an hilarious comedy that reaches out effortlessly across the centuries.

La exposición plasma la visión de catorce artistas latinoamericanos sobre la capital de España. El proyecto está basado en la propuesta de invitarlos a trabajar en Madrid durante una semana para realizar un trabajo fotográfico sin ningún tipo de exigencia ni limitación temática. No se planteó como un reportaje de la ciudad, sino que se trató de convertir Madrid en un lugar de trabajo para artistas, debiendo decidir en cada caso la presencia que la ciudad debía de tener en su obra. Las propuestas realizadas ponen de manifiesto la pluralidad que el medio fotográfico aporta al arte, ya que conviven series formadas por fotografías individuales, polípticos, objetos fotográficos, fotografías que interaccionan con sus propias sombras, imágenes estereoscópicas, vídeo o reproducciones sonoras.
