MACBA Museum Barcelona - June to September
The Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona dedicates this retrospective exhibition to the work of Francesc Torres. The tile of the exhibition “Da Capo” makes reference to a vision of the human condition related both to history and time, and which questions the nature of evolution.
Formed in the Escola Massana of Barcelona; in 1967 goes to Paris, where he attends classes in l'Ecole DES Beaux Arts and exerts of assistant of Piotr Kowalski, Polish sculptor and architect, that will exert remarkable influence over Torres. Moves to the United States in 1974 till first years of 2000, when he moves back to Barcelona.
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. The exhibition includes a recompilation of Torres' works created from late 1960s up to the present day in which the influence of poetry –which the artist has developed through extensive written work over the years– can be appreciated, alongside his cultivation of artwork centred on the search for objectivity. Interested in the nature of the object, Torres has evolved toward an analysis of biological systems where the use of natural elements (water, air, earth, etc.) appears.
At the MACBA from June 6 to September 28.
