Despite being separated by more than a generation, there are similarities and discrepancies between the creative careers of Auguste Rodin and Alberto Giacometti that are revealed for the first time in this joint exhibition which can be enjoyed at our Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall until 23 August 2020.
With the work of Pérez Siquier, one of the most powerful and important figures in Spanish photography in recent decades, in Barcelona and the sober and intense images of Richard Learoyd in Madrid, we reaffirmed our commitment to photography, culminating in an exhibition of the American social landscape by Lee Friedlander. Madrid's Sala Recoletos was given over to Auguste Rodin and Alberto Giacometti, two sculptors who, despite being more than a generation apart, provide parallels and disparities that are revealed for the first time in a joint exhibition.
After a period in our Barcelona exhibition hall and then the Fotomuseum Den Haag in The Hague, the show was available to enjoy in our Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall until 24 May.
This exhibition aims to serve as an extensive retrospective of his most distinguished series carried out between 1957 and 2018 and includes a substantial number of unpublished images and documentary material that enrich the understanding of his work. The show is open to the public at our Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall in Barcelona until 17 January, 2020.
