Josep Puigmartí, the artistic genius who lives and works in Hotel Estela Barcelona - Art Hotel in Sitges for almost two decades, returns to China.
From Studio Puigmarti, we are pleased to inform about the new exhibition of Josep Puigmartí in China. 7 years have already passed since his artworks visited the eastern country.
This time the starting point will be the impressive China Millennium Monument Contemporary Art Museum of Beijing (Peking). This temple of art is considered the most important museum in China.
This is a traveling exhibition that will visit other museums in the country. It had organizational support from the Institut Ramon Llull and the Generalitat de Catalunya through its Department of Culture and its Councillor Mr. Ferran Mascarell. It also has the support of the Government of China.
The exhibition is entitled "The Story of the Eyes". The opening is scheduled for May 8th at 3.00 pm and it will remain open until June 2nd 2013.
Puigmarti's Exhibition poster for Beijing
This exhibition is part of the celebrations on the 40th anniversary of relations between China and Spain.
The fact is that in 2005/6, Puigmartí was, already, presented in several museums in China (Shanghai, Guangzhou, etc..) With unprecedented success. His exhibitions were visited by over 40,000 people, leaving a pleasant memory among art lovers in China. As a result of continued work and monitoring relationships with various entities in China, this second series of exhibitions has been achieved.
Since that first contact, we have received countless requests of individuals from eastern country asking or wondering when Puigmarti would return to those distant and beautiful lands. Well, all fans and collectors can once again enjoy Puigmartí's spontaneous gesture, with the added attraction that, this time, the exhibition also includes works from his latest series "Remaining" in which he recovers his famous erotic surrealism from the 70's but with a subtle blend of current gestures. We will also find some of his new sculptures, beautifully crafted.
This exhibition will not end here, since after this first museum there will come others. We will inform you promptly.
