The first exhibition, ‘Our own path remains’, will be held until November 4th. Here, Fito Conesa takes as his starting point Arvo Pärt’s life and work, as well as crisis as a form of knowledge, and presents a musical piece of his own. The artist has built an acoustic shell, a cave for a sensory experience that blurs the boundaries between artistic disciplines.
