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.
Spanish painter Maria Mari Murga presents the pieces of her series Painting Mindanao at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). The exhibition is part of the wider program "Mindanao: Cartographies of History, Identity and Representation", which will take place the first weekend of July.
The first major exhibition in the UK for over a century of the artist known as Spain’s Impressionist, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (1863–1923), opens at the National Gallery in spring 2019.
