6 exhibitions await you! Art, photography, history and technology

Here at the Foundation we always support culture, in the hope that it will be shared through exhibitions like the ones that are currently open to the public in Alicante, Barcelona, Galicia, Prague and Valencia.

-‘Big Bang Data’ explores, through the work of artists, designers, innovators and thinkers, the data explosion phenomenon and how it is transforming our every-day lives. After being held in Barcelona, Madrid, Buenos Aires, London and Singapore, it now reaches Prague, and will be open until August 14th at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art.

-‘Fruit Belt’ is the last of the cycle of exhibitions at the Joan Miró Foundation’s Espai 13. Artist Martin Llavaneras invites us on an incursion into the lines that divide humankind from its environment. The title of this exhibition refers to the term used to describe an area with optimal conditions for fruit cultivation and plots of land characterised by the abundance of industrial warehouses. The exhibition will be open to the public until September 11th.

The ‘Stone Guardians’ exhibition stops in Villajoyosa, organised by MARQ. This exhibition pays homage to the more than 230 castles and fortifications located in the province of Alicante.

-‘Weegee by Weegee’, co-produced by the Banco Sabadell Foundation, brings together over 100 photographs taken by a photo journalist who published his work in all of the mainstream newspapers and brought crime in New York to the limelight during the 1930s and 1940s. The photos have been taken from the Michel and Michèle Auer collection, one of the largest private collections of Weegee’s photographs in the world. The exhibition is open until November 5th at the Foto Colectania Foundation headquarters in Barcelona.

-‘Da árbore á cadeira’ will take you on an emotional journey from the raw material to the finished product, from wood to household furniture, to invite you to reflect upon the environmental wealth of woodlands and the tradition in Galicia of trades linked to the arts of woodwork and contemporary furniture designs. The exhibition is open until November 5th at the Centro Gaiás Museum of the Cidade da Cultura de Galicia.
