Original post 30 July: There’s a rather special event to look out for between 21 to 29 September, when the TEN-DIEZ movement presents an 8-day-long exhibition in the Magma Centre in Playa de las Américas. The concept is a cultural community one: 10 Photographers, 10 views, 100 images – all the photographers offering a united view of their artistic environment (they’re all Tenerife based) and showing their own Tenerife beyond the exotic geography that we’re familiar with.
The motivation for the exhibition is for these artists, and they’re artists, of that there’s no doubt, to produce a closer and more extensive interaction with the public, with the photographers involving themselves actively in image production, demonstrating it to the audience, and collecting feedback direct from them, a contact between creators and spectators. They’ve been working on this exhibition since November 2011, and now have backing from over 25 local and 4 international businesses.
There will be additional activities and competitions sponsored by various international companies, and these will be announced over the course of the next few weeks. For further information, see the TEN-DIEZ website HERE and Facebook page HERE. Entry to the exhibition is free
