TEA Tenerife Space of Arts inaugurates in the Candelaria TEA Space, in the Space of Art of the Old City Council of Candelaria, the exhibition "La realidad es una sola" (Reality is only one), by Efraín Pintos (Uruguay, 1941), which rescues part of the extensive photographic archive of Pintos who for more than forty years has portrayed the art and architecture of the Islands. It can be visited until 8 June, from Monday to Saturday, from 08:30 to 14:00 hours and from 16:00 to 20:00 hours.

Since his arrival in the Canary Islands in 1971, Efraín Pintos has been actively involved in cultural life, participating in projects linked to the recently inaugurated headquarters of the Official College of Architects of the Canary Islands, projects by the critic Eduardo Westerdahl and the architect Vicente Saavedra, such as the exhibition in homage to Josep Lluís Sert in 1972 or the First International Street Sculpture Exhibition in 1973. In "La realidad es una sola", the visitor can graphically recompose some of the most important cultural milestones in the most recent history of the Islands. Efraín Pintos is an essential photographer and a fundamental reference to understand the cultural history of art in the Canary Islands. This exhibition, which, as a retrospective, narrates his forty-six years of professional trajectory, is essentially a documentary exhibition and it should also be noted that the photographs on display are analogue, chemical, in order to prevent them from losing their essence.
