Nicholas Nixon

Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza exhibition hall

General curator: Carlos Gollonet

 

Nicholas Nixon (Detroit, 1947) holds a unique and outstanding place in the history of photography in recent decades. He focuses particularly on portraits and with a clear interest in the descriptive possibilities of the camera. His work reveals tension between what is visible (with an extraordinary clarity and compositional skill) and what is invisible (the thoughts and concerns that emerge in his images).

The historiography of art in Spain, has traditionally considered the work of Ignacio Zuloaga (Éibar, 1870 – Madrid, 1945) under the perspective of what is known as "Black Spain".By contrast, it is curious to see how the figure of the painter abroad was considered fundamental in the evolution of the artistic discourse that would lead to modernity. Following this line, the exhibition gives a new look at Zuloaga, showing how his artistic production combines a deep sense of tradition, with a fully modern outlook, and especially linked to symbolism during his years in Paris.

El infierno según Rodin El infierno según Rodin

HELL ACCORDING TO RODIN

Fundación MAPFRE Garriga i Nogués exhibition hall

 

The Gates of Hell by Auguste Rodin is considered the central work in the career of this sculptor. This monumental work gives a spectacular view of hell, frenzied and tempestuous, but at the same time sensual and dreamy. The artist worked for over twenty years both on the architectural dimension of The Gate, and on the figures emerging from it, in which his fascination for the figure and his ability to express the impulse of the human soul are highlighted.
