Francis Picabia Francis Picabia

Picasso - Picabia

Fundación MAPFRE Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall (Barcelona)

Curator: Aurélie Verdier

 

The exhibition Picasso-Picabia brings these two fundamental 20th century artists together for the first time ever on a journey through the history of modern art. The dialogue that is established between the pieces of work by these two artists shows the real and imagined links between them. Indeed, the exhibition starts off with the appearance of cubism and continues through to the arrival of Dada -in which Picabia undoubtedly played a starring role, without forgetting the twenties, when both of them shared a liking for a personal return to classicism. The exhibition ends with a selection of their latest paintings: whereas Picasso relentlessly returned to the human figure until his death, Picabia, limited his work to painting subtle monochromes splashed by dots.

Claude Monet Claude Monet

REDISCOVERING THE MEDITERRANEAN

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Curators: Marie-Paule Viale and Pablo Jiménez Burillo

 

The Mediterranean as a theme, but also as a reference to the past, became the unexpected protagonist in the process of renewal and development of modern European art. In France, Spain and Italy, artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Pierre Renoir, Pierre Bonnard, Joaquín Sorolla, Joaquim Sunyer, Julio González and Giorgio de Chirico among others, from different viewpoints and different aesthetic concerns, found the way to renew and reconcile with the past, either as light or tradition, or even both, a place where they found a balance between nature and happiness in contrast to the artificialness and speed of modern life.

Humberto Rivas Humberto Rivas

Humberto Rivas

Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall (Madrid)

Curator: Pep Benlloch

 

Born in Buenos Aires in 1937, Humberto Rivas moved to Barcelona with his family in 1976 following the military coup in Argentina and stayed until his death in 2009. During the sixties, his work in the Catalan capital played a vital role in getting photography to be seen as a creative artistic medium. Marginalized compared to other disciplines back in those days, photography found an alternative means of documenting life through the work of Rivas, who was interested in the passage of time and the imprint left by culture and memory.
