El Museo de Bellas Artes de Santander hosts the exhibition 'Shock',El_Ejido_PLAN_E_works9; by Jorge Galindo.
The artist presents the exhibition at a press conference, which was accompanied by the mayor of Santander, Inigo de la Serna, Deputy Director General for Culture, Fernando Garrido, the Councillor for Culture, Cesar Torrellas, and the director of the Museum, Salvador Carretero .
Galindo said he wanted to do an exhibition "very special" and "different other", which has led to a sample "envelope" and "shocking", which, however, relates to one of his paintings on display at the Museum series of 'Clowns'.
Furthermore, he indicated he intended to do a selection of his works in the last five years. In fact, on the ground floor of the gallery are works belonging to the latest unpublished series exhibited in Madrid.
With 'Crash', the author seeks to "dialogue" between the material of his latest series. "I wanted to see common aspects of my work in the last five years, but also to show my independence," he said. Furthermore, he indicated he wants to experiment with all types of media and stress the importance it attaches to space and installation.
In this regard, he pointed to the painting is "freedom" and pointed out that in each frame "appear" elements that were dormant. So, I conclude that "in everything I do, I paint, is being seen all my life."
For its part, the museum director defined the exhibition as a "collage", an "accumulation of images," a work ",More_than_80_companies_today0;impressive" and inclusive "dialogue impossible." Galindo pointed out that "everything melts, and media content, because everything is useful and everything flows."
The installation has been set "so amazing," he stated, and pointed out that 15 of the pieces have been painted or engraved on the museum itself, with reference to London or Francisco de Goya, "mainstreaming fused with magic." In this regard, I emphasize that is a constant in the course of the author's "natural appropriation, the special transfiguration of opposites, which emerges naturally."
While the Mayor was pleased that this exhibition is said, a "great support" to the candidacy of Santander as European Capital of Culture 2016.
De la Serna also stressed the "interest" of the Museum of Fine Arts by bringing modern art to the city as proof that the 200 exhibitions that have been made in the last 20 years, more than 150 were devoted to contemporary art and almost Fifty to modern art.
In addition, the alderman bump the interest of the City Council and the Ministry of Culture to establish agreements with the Museo del Prado and the Reina Sofia to "reformulate" the contents of the gallery Santander.
In this sense, Garrido was the collaboration between Consistory and counseling to promote the Museum of Fine Arts and recalled the interest of his department for the work of Galindo, whose work "has followed" through the North Collection.
