Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento, one of the most well-known figures in international contemporary art, has modelled an enigmatics exhibition with Works proceeding from collections of Fundación "la Caixa", MACBA and CAM, from Lisbon’s Fundaçao Gulbenkian. A challenge sent by CaixaForum that compiles contemporary DNA samples from different entities. Sculpture, painting, videos and installations set in motion a dialogue with the audience.
“El peso de un gesto” (“The importance of a gesture”) offers a free narrative, one that the visitor must write by herself. It has no set itinerary: Works combine with ideas, with mystery, with possible realities, and whoever experiences them must draw her own conclusions. If you enjoy contemporary art, don’t miss the challenge of drawing your own conclusions.
From 22 June to 18 September
CaixaForum. Paseo del Prado, 36.
