Eduardo Chillida and the arts of his time. A conversation (1950-1970)


San Telmo Museum

Donostia-San Sebastián

08.06.2024 - 29.10.2024

The exhibition presents Chillida's creative universe within the framework of the artistic culture of his time, focusing on his first decades, between 1950 and 1970, when he defined his aesthetic ideals and plastic imagination.

Curated by María Bolaños, the exhibition delves into the network of visual connections, conceptual ties and parallel explorations that united Chillida with the concerns of the artists of his generation and the practices of his contemporaries, with the values and trends seen on the international scene of highly fertile, interdisciplinary dialogues.

The exhibition brings together more than a hundred works by great masters of the period from more than 30 museums and collections: sculptures, photographs, paintings, choreography, design, historical documents, scores and films.
