Gil J Wolman. I am Immortal and Alive was the first monographic exhibition on French artist Gil J Wolman (Paris, 1929-1995) ever held in Spain. Wolman was a leading exponent of Lettrism, the creator of the film or film-sculpture without images L'Anticoncept (1951), inventor of notion of the megapneume and of Scotch Art and founder of the separatist artistic movement of which he was the sole member.

But in spite of all of this, "Wolman's passage through history was excessively discreet, as though he were an illegal immigrant of avant-garde art, a figure always present but never identified, a stowaway who emerged at the dawn of a century that he reached thanks to being immortal and always alive", write Bartomeu Marí and João Fernandes in the exhibition catalogue.

The exhibition brought together a total of 250 works, documents and publications – some of them exhibited for the first time – which looked back over Wolman's artistic career and also offered an illustrative overview of the Lettrist movement.
