There are plenty of exhibitions where to nourish our thirst for art & inspiration during the month when we hope to welcome spring. Explore more on a private art tour!

I.

Exhibition: Post Production Life
Artist: Alfonso Batalla
Venue: Galería Vanguardia
Dates: Until April 12th, 2018


The work of Alfonso Batalla takes us to the abandoned arctic city of Pyramiden, while at the same time silences elements looking for quiet compositions that could be anywhere else. The choice of post-industrial scenes are a way to trigger a reflection on the contemporary techniques of post production in photography, resulting in a very pleasant visit on which to contemplate and rethink the effects of human settlement and so-called progress.

II.

Exhibition: Subespecies de Almacén (Warehouse subspecies)
Artists: Pablo Picasso, Néstor Basterretxea, Frank Stella, Richard Serra, Pello Irazu, Jessica Stockholder, Joan Miró, Eva Rothschild, Anthony Caro, Víctor Vasarely, Asier Mendizabal, Txomin Badiola, Ángela de la Cruz, Manuel Millares, Juan Muñoz, Antonio Saura, Antoni Tapies, et al.
Venue: Carreras Múgica
Dates: From March 9th, 2018


What could have been a terribly commonplace idea, the garage sale, magically works at Carreras Múgica. The utter excitement and feeling of discovery one feels when visiting a good gallery’s storage spaces, is displaced with this exhibition into the gallery walls. Playing with a different set of logical decisions that those we are used to, the exhibition challenges current curating criterias and feels fresh and brave, in a way I am already looking forward to go back.

Exhibition: Art & Space, 
Artists: Eduardo Chillida & Martin Heidegger. Jorge Oteiza, Gordon Matta-Clark, Olafur Eliasson, Eva Hesse, Ernesto Neto, Damián Ortega, Lucio Fontana, Cristina Iglesias, Robert Motherwell, Asier Mendizabal, et al.
Venue: Guggenheim Bilbao
Dates: Until April 14th, 2018


The last chance to enter the White Bubble by Ernesto Neto is in the near future (physically enter, but only after removing your shoes) and to get struck by the large scale apparatus of Damián Ortega. An exhibition whose starting point is a collaboration between an artist and a philosopher: Eduardo Chillida & Martin Heidegger, which resulted in a book entitled Art and Space (1969).
