Francesc Torres. Da capo
Guided tour by Francesc Torres and Bartomeu Marí, MACBA's director
Francesc Torres (Barcelona, 1948) is the author of a very vast and varied body of work that fundamentally runs in opposition to the humanist vision of society. His multimedia installations representing speed, competition and machismo as sources and expressions of violence are well-known. Equally present in his work are war as a sophisticated and cultured expression of this violence and the fragility of historical memory in the face of political manipulation.
The exhibition the MACBA now dedicates to him represents a reading of the artist's work in museum tones, and also includes a "response" from the artist to the museum's reading in the form of new works created specifically for this occasion.
Opening: July 5, at 7:30 pm
Exhibition: until September 28, 2008.
