With this exhibition we want to vindicate the importance of art as an expression of culture and a generator of culture. We do it as a tribute to sculptural art and its intrinsic ability to communicate with a powerful, direct and real language made of metal, marble, iron, wood, polyethylene and bronze.
The exhibition shows the work of eight artists of different ages and origins who, with very different materials and techniques, decline their own concept of sculptural art.
The collective presents, for each of the artists, a large-format sculpture and a small-format one. Sixteen pieces that make visible the dialogues between sculpture and creator, between creator and society, between formats and materials, with the aim of generating an open dialogue with those who observe.
Observe and enjoy, because sculpture is culture!

From June 9 to July 30, 2016
Eight sculptors in an exhibition honoring sculpture and its ability to communicate with the powerful language of materials. Lorenzo Cambin, Ferran Cartes, Tony Cassius, German Consetti, Luis Cortés, Franco Monti and Helene Yousse. Marie-France Veyrat from Reus has presented two pieces in which she cuts the expanded polystyrene into sheets that she presents as wall reliefs or combines to create volumetric structures. It plays with the initial feeling of lightness of the material, identifiable by the texture, modified with coatings of paint or transmuted into materials such as marble and bronze. He has presented Creus N1, a mural in which the geometric perforations include the cultural diversity and the symbolism of different formats of crosses.
