Chillida-Ortega Muñoz


Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao


25.06.2024 - 30.09.2024

The Bilbao Museum of Fine Arts is celebrating the centenary of Eduardo Chillida’s birth twice. Firstly, the museum has loaned Meeting Place IV (1973), one of the most emblematic sculptures in its collection, to be enjoyed in Chillida Leku until the completion of the expansion projected by Foster and Uriarte.

Secondly, the museum will host an exhibition during the summer of 2024 in which the historian Javier González de Durana will propose a face to face with suggestive formal analogies between Chillida and Godofredo Ortega Muñoz, remembering that the painter's first individual exhibition took place in the museum in 1957 when, a year later, Chillida would obtain the International Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale.
