Guest curator Maria Fusco takes master works from ”la Caixa” Collection of Contemporary Art as inspiration for NINE QWERTY BELLS. Fiction for Live Voice, a short story in which each work of art gives a presentation at a conference. This is the second of four displays from the collection, which was established in 1985 to foster dialogue between Spanish and international art.
This exhibition brings together six of Bermejo’s paintings that have never been seen outside of Spain, including the triptych of the 'Madonna of Montserrat' from the cathedral at Acqui Terme, Alessandria (Italy) and the 'Piedad Desplà' from Barcelona Cathedral.
Alberto Feijóo (b.1985, Spain) draws on the materiality of the image in relation to video, sculpture, installation, book-making and design. His work maps the passage of time, memories and world events, constantly mixing genres and recontextualising the ‘biography of objects’ which surround him.
The Edinburgh International Book Festival began in 1983 and is now a key event in the August Festival season.
