75 Years of EFE Images: Wars, Triumphs, Disasters, People and Politics

February 17 – August 28, 2016

75 Years of EFE Images: Wars, Triumphs, Disasters, People and Politics, is an exhibition and collection of photographs donated to MDC’s Permanent Art Collection and Wolfson Archives. In 2015, Agencia EFE, the Spanish international news agency celebrated 75 years in service. The world’s fourth largest wire service, EFE has documented and reported some of the most important events throughout the world through words and images. In celebration of its 75th anniversary, EFE compiled a collection of its most arresting and impactful images for each year in existence.
The exhibition includes photographs from EFE’s award-winning photojournalists, capturing pivotal moments in history including coronations of kings and queens, presidential visits, star-studded moments, physical triumphs and political turmoil. The donation, a shared special collection between the Museum’s Permanent Art Collection and the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives, will expand each year as EFE selects a definitive image illustrating the climactic event capturing the headlines.
