- The exhibition shows twenty-three works by Cristina Iglesias, the internationally renowned artist from San Sebastián, widely recognised for the complexity and quality of her work.
- The retrospective, curated by Vicente Todolí, offers a poetic view of the world, rendering a new dimension of the landscape using industrial materials..
- Specifically for Centro Botín, the artist created the permanent sculpture “Desde lo subterráneo” [From the Underground]. Moreover, in September she will be giving the next Fundación Botín Visual Arts Workshop.
- Iglesias’ last big exhibition in Spain was at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in 2013; therefore this show provides a marvellous opportunity to look back at her career as well as discover her more recent works.
Centro Botín presents, from 6 October 2018 to 3 March 2019, the retrospective exhibition “CRISTINA IGLESIAS: ENTRƎSPACIOS”. The show, curated by Vicente Todolí, chairman of the Artistic Committee, will comprise twenty-three of the artist’s works created between 1992 and 2018 of which some are typically monumental in size.
Moreover, Cristina Iglesias (San Sebastián, November 1956) will be giving Fundación Botín Visual Arts workshop (from 17 to 28 September), an initiative organised every year in Santander since 1994. Cristina Iglesias has close ties with Fundación Botín and its new art centre in Santander, having specifically conceived her sculptural project From the Underground, a work in stone, steel and water comprising four wells and a pond, for Centro Botín and the Pereda Gardens.
