ARRANZ-BRAVO FOUNDATION | L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain
February 9, 2017 – April 23, 2017
Opening Reception February 9, 7:30 pm
This exhibition, a celebration of Eduardo Arranz-Bravo’s 75th birthday, features 75 retrospective works representing all the artistic phases of his career. Seventy-five individuals from the worlds of culture and civil society were invited to select and comment on one of the works and their interpretations are included with the artworks.
This project goes beyond homage. The Foundation is using this exhibition as a way to continue working toward one of their primary missions –artistic communication. They believe that, all too often, contemporary art exists in complete disconnection from society. The public rarely visits art centers and many leading lights in the world of culture – poets, writers, thinkers – feel no connection with today’s art. The exhibition, Arranz-Bravo 75/75, is a fresh attempt to redress this state of affairs. Art is made not only by the artist; art is an extraordinary assertion of the collective. The contribution made by each participant has helped to build an unusual and important artistic biography of Eduardo Arranz-Bravo.
