EXHIBITIONS AT THE CITY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES III: JAUME PLENSA

Barcelona sculptor Jaume Plensa closed the series of temporary exhibitions that the Hortensia Herrero Foundation organised in the City of Arts and Sciences, after Manolo Valdés’s and Tony Cragg’s.

This time the exhibition is made up of seven sculptures, all of which are unique cast iron pieces, reaching seven metres high. The works will be located in the South Lake of the complex designed by Santiago Calatrava and can be seen until 3 November.

Jaume Plensa is one of the Spanish artists with the greatest presence all over the world. Cities such as Montreal, San Diego, Chicago, Seul, Tokyo, Miami, New York, London, Salzburg, Liverpool, Dubai and Dallas have his sculptures permanently installed. Likewise, Plensa’s work has been temporarily exhibited in museums and institutions like the Venice Biennial, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the the Picasso Museum in Antibes, the MAMAC in Nice, in museums in cities like Helsinki, Tampa or Nashville and in his Paris, New York and Chicago galleries. Plensa opened two exhibitions in our country in November 2018: one for a specific project for Madrid’s Palacio de Cristal (Glass Palace) (MNCARS) and another one in the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). Both exhibitions can be visited until April 2019.
