The Cortijo Miraflores Cultural Center will host, from October 14 to 29, 2021 the exhibition‘The 80s are ours. Posters of a decade of Spanish cinema ‘. The exhibition is organized by the Cinema area of the Culture delegation, which has an important archive of graphic material, which includes movie posters from various periods.
During this year, the proposal will focus on exhibitions of films from the 80s. For 2022 and 2023, exhibitions on the cinema of the 90s will be organized, with a selection of forty posters in each one of them. Along with ‘posters’ that are limited to advertising the film, there are some that constitute real gems and are signed by important graphic artists.
Some of these creators are leading designers of the decade, such as the multidisciplinary Ivan Zulueta, or burst into force to stay in our cinematography, as the essential Juan Gatti or Cruz Novillo, and several have work in the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving Marbella, cases of Ceesepe, Vicente Arnás, Manuel Boix or José Luis Fajardo.
The exhibition illustrates works of worship and the Movida, such as ‘Arrebato’, by Zulueta himself, or those that mark the beginning of the career of Almodovar; important titles, such as the first Oscar, or films that are part of our life and, of course, of the hazardous chronicle of Spanish cinema. Almost all the posters are accompanied by dialogues from the film, reflections of our idiosyncrasy and of that effervescent decade.
