    Logroño
    From 8 October to 7 November 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.

    Further information about the exhibition "Ladies and gentlemen, let the show begin. Georges Méliès and film of the 1900s".

  • Paseo De La Victoria
    Cordova
    From 10 October to 6 November, 2019
    Exhibition in collaboration with Parc Leonardo da Vinci - Clos Lucé

    If we had to highlight one of the many things we admire about Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps it would be his capacity to be ahead of his time in everything he did. Painting, engineering, anatomy, geometry and botany are just some of the disciplines on which he has left his mark.

    ”la Caixa” Foundation presents an exhibition with an intangible object of study: the thinking and curiosity of Leonardo, his way of always going further in knowledge. What attitudes and abilities enabled him to innovate? How is creativity enhanced?

    The link between Leonardo, alive between the 15th and 16th centuries, and us, the visitors to the exhibition in the 21th century, is much more natural and direct that we could ever imagine...

    Further information about the exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci. Observe, question, experiment"

    Goal
    An insight into the thinking of Leonardo da Vinci and his attitude to life in order to foster curiosity, a critical spirit and the desire for knowledge through observation and experimentation.

    What we offer
    An experience of discovery based on the essence of Leonardo’s thinking, transported to the present day. Scale models of some of his ingenuities, an audio visual that discusses observation, analysis and creativity, and experimentation games are just some of the tools used to build bridges between his time and the present day.

  • Plaza de la Virgen Blanca
    Vitoria-Gasteiz
    From 10 October to 6 November, 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.

    From 24 October to 10 December 2019

    "Genesis" is the search for the origins of the world and planet we inhabit. A world that has evolved during thousands of years before being confronted by the pace of modern life. After his projects entitled "Workers" and "Exodus", Sebastião Salgado founded the Earth Institute in order to reforest a rural property covering 700 hectares in Brazil. In many respects "Genesis" is a global corollary of the work carried out by the Earth Institute as it gave rise to the idea for the project: explore the beauty of the Earth.

    This exhibition presents photographs of landscapes, animals and people removed from the modern world: vast remote regions, intact and in silence, where nature still reigns supreme. Places where we can be nourished by the splendour of the polar regions, forests and tropical savannah, boiling deserts, mountains dominated by glaciers and solitary islands. An incredible mosaic where nature is expressed in all its glory.

    The photographs of "Genesis" aspire to reveal this beauty and represent a homage to the fragility of a planet we all have the duty to protect.

    What makes an everyday object become an hidden hero?

    It must have something to do with an ingenious but easily understandable idea. Hidden 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 "Hidden heroes. Brilliant inventions. Everyday objects", an exhibition with a lot to reveal.

    From 12 November to 13 December 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.

    Exhibition in collaboration with Parc Leonardo da Vinci - Clos Lucé

    If we had to highlight one of the many things we admire about Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps it would be his capacity to be ahead of his time in everything he did. Painting, engineering, anatomy, geometry and botany are just some of the disciplines on which he has left his mark.

    ”la Caixa” Foundation presents an exhibition with an intangible object of study: the thinking and curiosity of Leonardo, his way of always going further in knowledge. What attitudes and abilities enabled him to innovate? How is creativity enhanced?

    The link between Leonardo, alive between the 15th and 16th centuries, and us, the visitors to the exhibition in the 21th century, is much more natural and direct that we could ever imagine...

    Further information about the exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci. Observe, question, experiment"

    Goal
    An insight into the thinking of Leonardo da Vinci and his attitude to life in order to foster curiosity, a critical spirit and the desire for knowledge through observation and experimentation.

    What we offer
    An experience of discovery based on the essence of Leonardo’s thinking, transported to the present day. Scale models of some of his ingenuities, an audio visual that discusses observation, analysis and creativity, and experimentation games are just some of the tools used to build bridges between his time and the present day.
