CaixaForum Madrid is showing 25 years of the artistic career of Miquel Barceló (Mallorca, 1957) in a magnificent exhibition which will open from February 11th to June 13th. This exhibition will allow the viewers to enjoy his artistic experience, full of mystery and adrenaline. In this manner it will tour through some 200 pieces in the form of paintings, sculptures, posters, books and travel books.
With such purpose in mind, the artist has yielded an imposing sculpture called Gran Elefant dret (2009), a cast bronze elephant of seven feet high, which presides the public square of the CaixaForum. This invites the public to enter to the universe of the Majorcan painter.
This exhibition tries to approach the artist in a way that has never been done before: to discover an artistic biography through his large canvases from 1982 until his more recent work. The viewer will be immersed in the fast-paced, intriguing and mysterious work of Barceló.
The exhibition has the clear intention of bringing the great public his work as a personal experience. This is why he has chose the paintings and sculptures which are most representative of his career, including many from his own collection, which makes this exhibition a major event in the artistic agenda of the year 2010.
According to the organizers, the public will be brought into his most material world, his travels, both physical and mental in space and time, his use of unusual elements, his representation of the human and the animal world and his relationship with tradition.
