The trace of 1960s flamenco

Jun 18, 2024

In connection with the Joel Meyerowitz. Europa 1966-1967 exhibition, and as part of the cycle Flamenco x Joel Meyerowitz activities, the Museo Picasso Málaga is organising a roundtable that explores the flamenco scene in 1960s Málaga, with the guidance of Ramón Soler, Paco Roji and Lourdes Gálvez del Postigo.

Málaga was a very important milestone in Joel Meyerowitz’s travels around Europe, as it was the place where the artist and his wife Vivian came into contact with the world of flamenco. Through his relationship with the Escalona family and frequent visits to the Peña Juan Breva, Meyerowitz captured the Málaga flamenco scene in 1966 in his photographs.

To reconstruct these settings and provide an introduction to the traditional deeply expressive flamenco that fascinated Meyerowitz in the 1960s, the Museo Picasso Málaga has invited the experts Ramón Soler, Paco Roji and Lourdes Gálvez del Postigo to give a talk.

Ramón Soler is a mathematician, critic and flamenco researcher and expert on Antonio Mairena and his work. He has also published texts on Cañeta de Málaga and Antonio el Chaqueta.

Paco Roji is a flamenco cultural manager for the Regional Government of Andalusia. He is a researcher and writer and curator of photography exhibitions, who has been working for more than 30 years to disseminate knowledge of the history of flamenco in Malaga.

Lourdes Gálvez del Postigo is a flamenco critic for the newspaper Málaga Hoy, an art historian and a flamenco singer. She has an in-depth knowledge of flamenco singing in the province of Málaga.
