Galería Zielinsky supports contemporary artistic creations and is committed to promote Ibero-American artists. In addition to its exhibition room in Barcelona, the gallery also has a space in Brazil. In 2018, the gallery opened Zielinsky_FAB, a hybrid space located in a former textile factory in Sant Vicenç de Montalt, dedicated to experimental and interdisciplinary projects, allowing invited artists to make their residences in a singular environment.

Galeria Zielinsky presents "Muquiranas", a solo show by Brazilian artist João Farkas.
His latest photographs take the portrait as a focus of interest. During Carnival, men dress like women since this event became a great popular celebration during the 19th century. Groups (blocos) of men costumed like that for the festivity days proliferated all over Brazil. The biggest of them is the “Muquiranas" that gathers over 4.000 members in frenzy, dancing on the streets of Salvador - Bahia, Brazil. Farkas registers a collective creative process, where the individual creativity, guided by a common rule or pattern, multiplies itself endlessly by fellow’s stimulus.
João Farkas (1955, Sao Paulo, Brazil) has been documenting for over 30 years the relationship between the society and their context, within landscapes and the impacts caused by human existence in some regions of Brazil, and through popular costumes, culture and festivity.
