Exhibition of Sam Shaw

The exhibition is a sample of the prolific career of Shaw which has spun six decades and which will occupy the four floors of the exhibition space at Centro Cultural La Misericordia. The ground floor hosts a monographic about Marilyn Monroe, with some of the most iconic images of the actress and twentieth-century Hollywood.

On the first floor we find a collection of images that claim the figure of Shaw as a film producer, with films like Paris Blues (1961), starring Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier, A Woman Under the Influence (1974), Gloria (1980) and Love Streams (1984).

At the second level, there will be a showcase of Shaw’s photographs of great movie stars, such as Marlon Brando, John Wayne and Warren Beatty, among many others. Finally, on the third floor, photographs of the Shaw photojournalist documenting American life during the 1940s are exhibited, creating a collection of incredible images.
