30+6 Exposición Aniversario
Aurora Vigil-Escalera Art Gallery maintains its annual tradition of making its first exhibition of the year a group show with all the artists that have been with us along the way.
From January 27th to March 3rd 2021, 30 + 6 celebrates the gallery’s 6th birthday since its opening in January 2015, without forgetting the previous 30 years its director spent in the Van Dyck Art Space, a cultural benchmark from 1981 to 2015, and from which this new space has inherited so much.
This anniversary exhibition vindicates, now more than ever, the power of art and its importance for society. After a difficult year for all of us we have no choice but to try to learn from the bumps in the road, celebrate all the achievements and rejoice that, thanks to the constant work of our artists and the entire team, and the support and passion of art collectors and art lovers, one more year we are here to continue to fight for this world that inspires all of those who are part of it. A world that neither stops nor can be stopped!
During the next almost two months, both our gallery on Capua Street and our social networks for those who cannot visit us personally, will offer a magnificent selection of works by artists with an important national and international trajectory, which summarizes the best of the past year and anticipates some of the exhibitions that will be present throughout this next season.
The exhibition showcases works such as Javier Torices’ unmistakable marinas, Ismael Lagares’ hypnotic and colorful abstractions and Jorge Hernández’s cinematographic scenes; next to fabulous sculptures raging from Herminio’s magnetism, Lisardo’s minimalism and Pablo Armesto’s light. Photography, which was so present this past year with great names such as the National Awards Isabel Muñoz and Chema Madoz or José María Mellado, will also be present in this exhibition, as well as the paintings of undisputed masters of contemporary Spanish art such as Luis Gordillo and Juan Genovés , whose samples of their respective and celebrated 2020 solo shows mark the perfect end to this retrospective and the beginning of a new year.
We hope to see you at our gallery soon to enjoy together all the good times that art brigs us.
