Escultura és cultura

When the contemporary art world appears trapped between global economies and futile appearances, it is time to remember and claim the importance of art as expression of culture and generator of culture.

This exhibition is an homage to sculpture and its ability to communicate with a powerful, direct and real language, made of metal, marble, steel, wood, polyethylene and bronze.

The collective exhibition displays works by eight artists: 16 sculptures that express the dialogue between sculpture and creator, between creator and society, between formats and materials, with the aim to generate an open dialogue with the observer.

We hope you will enjoy it, since sculpture is culture.
