Del vell al nou, del nou al vell

Comissariada per Fina Duran, l’exposició mostra el treball d’una dotzena d’artistes que plantegen una mirada diferent al patrimoni que ens arriba del passat i que va configurant la nostra memòria i la nostra identitat. Les obres van acompanyades de textos de filòsofs, crítics i historiadors de l’art
L’exposició està encapçalada pels versos de J. V. Foix:

«L’antic museu, les madones borroses,
I el pintar extrem d’avui! Càndid rampell:
M’exalta el nou i m’enamora el vell.»

Exposició 20.10.2017 – 31.01.2018 Museu d’Art de Cerdanyola
A partir de febrer del 2018: Arts Santa Mònica

In collaboration with the Càtedra Màrius Torres and Pagès Editors, this year we publish a dossier that includes the facsimile of the greeting cards that J. V. Foix sent to his friends between 1948 and 1976.

Each of them contains a poem by Foix and an illustration by artists such as Dalí, Miró, Tàpies, Ponç or Amat. The dossier also includes an introduction by Jordi Cerdà and a CD with ten of Foix’s poems recited by himself.
