Art, science and culture, closer than you ever imagined

March

Consult the towns and cities holding some of our exhibitions this month.
  • Alameda de la Constitución, s/n.
    Lorca
    From 15 February to 3 March 2019

    What makes an everyday object become an unsung hero?

    It must have something to do with an ingenious but easily understandable idea. Unsung heroes are objects that have been produced millions of times but are still indispensable in our daily lives. These are objects that have proved their worth time and time again and which have remained essentially unaltered for decades or, in other words, are everyday classics.

    With these objects, images and videos presented in this exhibition we hope to show four particularly interesting aspects:

    1. Innovation: the fascinating history of how these objects were invented.

    2. Production: the technical conditions of their successful large-scale production.

    3. Evolution: their historical development and the amazing diversity of models and variations generated.

    4. Inspiration: their appearance which continues to inspire the work of artists and designers.

    The "la Caixa" Foundation presents the travelling exhibition "Unsung heroes. Genius inventions. Everyday objects", an exhibition with a lot to reveal.

  • PQ. de San Telmo n. s/n.
    Las Palmas De Gran Canaria
    From 7 February to 13 March 2019

    Picasso's Guernica is one of the most famous and widely reproduced, admired and reinterpreted works in the history of art, and an icon of the 20th century.

    Originally created for the Paris Exhibition of 1937 as propaganda for the Second Spanish Republic, the painting was later used to support refugees from the Civil War. After the Second World War it was deposited at the MoMA and became a symbol of modern art.

    Guernica has travelled far and wide: from Paris to New York, from São Paulo to Stockholm, from London to Milan, from Munich to Madrid, as well as many other cities in Europe and America. It has also become a symbol for a host of civil protests and unrest: from the Vietnam War in the 1960s to the war in Syria and the refugee crisis.

    The impact of Picasso's work, and in particular Guernica, challenges the memory and visual imagery of our time and is still entirely valid today.

  • Parque de San Julián
    Cuenca
    From 26 February to 27 March 2019

    If there were no North Pole our planet would be so different we wouldn't recognise it.

    This travelling exhibition aims to show us the remarkable nature of the Arctic ecosystem, explaining the important role it plays in the world's climate and revealing its characteristics and biodiversity.

    Highlights of this exhibition are the sensational photographs by Andoni Canela, a prestigious nature photographer who has travelled throughout the Arctic region to bring us totally up-to-date images.

    With this exhibition, "la Caixa" Foundation aims to contribute to the Science in Society programme by raising scientific awareness regarding a particularly endangered ecosystem: the Arctic. It also hopes to promote critical thought and raise awareness of an important environmental problem: the effects of climate change on the Arctic and the consequences for the rest of the planet.

  • Herriko Plaza s/n.
    Barakaldo
    From 7 March to 7 April, 2019

    Continuing with the tradition of holding exhibitions related to the world of cinema, "la Caixa" Foundation presents a journey back in time to the years that saw the birth of the seventh art, via a visionary artist: Georges Méliès.

    Méliès revolutionised cinema: he built the very first film studio and promoted the production and distribution of films. He also worked as an actor and wrote and directed his own films. Thanks to all this, today he's considered to be the creator of cinematography.

    Georges Méliès was a precursor. Great plots, editing techniques and coloured films are the origin of one of the most popular and profitable genres in the history of the seventh art: fantasy films. Méliès' films convey vitality, creativity, illusion, fantasy and a sense of humour, and prove that anything is possible in the cinema.

    Exhibition produced with the participation of La Cinémathèque Française.

  • Plaza Mariano Granados
    Soria
    From 19 March to 7 April, 2019
    Exhibition in collaboration with "la Fundación Vicente Ferrer"

    Land of Dreams provides an unapologetic insight into the uniqueness and asymmetry of rural life in India. A scenario where the past merges with the present, and the natural with the supernatural and fantasy.

    Through the photographs, the exhibition aims to give a voice to the women of the rural communities of Anantapur (Andhra Pradesh) and highlight their power to transform their surroundings. Obstinate and disproportionate, Cristina García Rodero has been able to immerse herself in this world, blend into the joy and suffering of those who cover the nuances of their very existence with both colour and elegance.

    This exhibition forms part of the Art in the Street programme through which the ”la Caixa” Foundation seeks to bring art closer to people, outside the usual settings of museums and exhibition halls.
