Within the framework of the V Biennal de València Ciutat Vella Oberta 2021, and in order to continue sharing art, history and culture in a public way, we offer a guided visit to Bombas Gens Centre d’Art. The visit will consist of a tour of the current exhibitions, “Sculpting Reality“, The documentary style in the Per Amor A l’Art Collection and “Blank“, Irma Blank. In addition, there will be a visit to the garden where there is also a site-specific exhibition by Cristina Iglesias entitled “Through”.
The visit will take place on Friday 19 November at 12am at Bombas Gens Centre d’Art. The activity is free until full capacity is reached and registration is required.
The exhibition “Sculpting Reality” revolves around the concept of “documentary style” founded by Walker Evans in the 1930s. The exhibition studies this way of understanding photography until the 1980s, with Tod Papageorge and Anthony Hernández, who included colour in their work. Seriality is one of the specificities of the photographic medium and accompanies these authors in their need to reflect the “reality” of the society around them.
On the other hand, the recently opened exhibition “Blank” by Irma Blank presents, from different points of view, a journey through the artist’s work from her first works with the series Eigenschriften (1968) to the most recent, Gehen (2017). This is a monographic exhibition, specially created for the Bombas Gens Centre d’Art space, which explores the relationships between writing, drawing and painting.
