As the curtain falls on the BFI Southbank Pedro Almodóvar season, BritEs reflects on some of the highlights. Through this two-month series, coinciding with the international release of Almodóvar’s Oscar-nominated ‘Julieta’ (2016), BFI have brought us closer than ever to the contexts, concepts and realities of the icon behind the lens. With an expansive selection of screenings, guest appearances, lectures and discussions, the British Film Institute have delivered an immersive journey through the remarkable spheres of experience which give shape to the Almodrama we see on screen. This outstanding collaboration of voices, experiences and perspectives will go down as the ultimate tribute to an unforgettable career.

Copperfield Gallery and SCAN present ‘Miseratione non mercede‘, with works by David Escalona, Julia Varela, Oscar Santillan and Marco Godoy. Translated to ‘compassion not gain’, the title draws on a Latin inscription in an old operating theatre. Hidden in the roof of the nearby St Thomas’s Church this was a space where those without money could receive pre-anaesthetic surgical treatment.
Blanca Berlín is the only Spanish gallery invited to the event at this edition of the fair. The Spanish gallery will be showcasing works by Cecilia Paredes, Isabel Muñoz, Flor Garduño, Ramón Masats, Martin Chambi, Nicolas Muller, Miguel Soler-Roig and many others.
