Josep Maria Subirachs. Figurations and abstractions
Tribute to Subirachs on the 90th anniversary of his birth
09/03/2017 – 13/05/2017
The exhibition consists of a suggestive set of 80 artworks, mainly sculptures, but also drawings and paintings that are, simultaneously, representative of the diverse formal and conceptual contributions and of the varied techniques practised by the artist.
Formal scrupulosity, mastery of the technique, contrasts of styles, juxtapositions of materials and models defines Subirachs’ personality. The play of dualism — figurative-abstract, myth-reality, form-symbol, innovation-repetition, positive-negative, painting-sculpture — becomes the emblem that distinguishes the production of one of the most representative exponents of the sculpture of the second half of the twentieth century.
