Additionally, the launch of ‘Per què sóc així?‘ (‘Why am I like this?’) will occur: an exhibition curated by the divulgator Juli Capella that can be seen at the Centre del Carme de Cultura Contemporània (Carme Center for Contemporary Culture) (CCCC). This ode to the objects we find in our daily lives explores how they work and highlights their importance, despite their small size.
As they tell themselves…
“We are small objects, but we offer you great benefits. From a clip to a funnel, through the light bulb, the telephone, the easy opener, a flip-flop or a coffee maker. Some of us are more beautiful than others, but we all have something in common, the aim to serve you. Come see us and we will tell you why we are like this. From now on you will see us with different eyes.”
Another of the debuts will arrive at the Chirivella Soriano Foundation with the exhibition ‘Through post-truth’, a sample that includes the most recent artistic work by Pepe Gimeno, National Design Award 2020.
For its part, the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) will bring us closer to the work of two great pioneering artists of modernity in the 20th century. The exhibition ‘Anni and Josef Albers: Art and Life’ will collect approximately 350 works including paintings, photographs, design and textiles, films, documentary material, and a selection of pieces of furniture from the Bauhaus stage, with the fundamental milestones in the career of this couple of artists.
We will also have the opportunity to enjoy a renewed ‘Illustrated Season’ exhibition, located in the MuVIM cafeteria. Aitana Carrasco will be in charge of capturing its panache in a new fascicule of the illustration cycle.
And from Valencia to the world, and vice versa: for its part, the Territorial College of Valencian Architects (CTAV) will bring a more international perspective with the exhibition ‘Lina Bo Bardi a Bahía’, gathering one of the most creative periods —and at the same time less known— Italian-Brazilian architecture.
The Design Capital will put its flag in Madrid with the exhibition ‘Fruits of design’, located in Centro Centro. This graphic recovery project will highlight designs which were created since the end of the 50s; The image that surrounds the fruits has been part of the daily graphics of consumers in Spain and Europe for decades.
