“Home is where the heart is,” the well-known idiom says. It is almost as if Barbara Hammer, one of the pioneers of queer cinema, has traced this idiom in her documentary on the life of renowned poet Elizabeth Bishop, as “Welcome to This House” delves into the various houses and love affairs that Bishop lived in and experienced throughout the years. Known for her experimental documentaries, Hammer sets up a brilliant relationship between sound and sight so as to let us feel what it is like to live in these places. We set out on a journey into the unknown parts of Bishop’s private life through photographs and interviews done with those who personally got to know this legendary poet. “Welcome to This House” is an experience that literature lovers as well as cinephiles should not miss.
The exhibition Look at Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Through the exhibition we will be sharing about the artists and sections in Look At Me!.
The second part of exhibition illustrates Alberto Giacometti’s relations with Post-Cubist artists and the Surrealist movement between 1922 and 1935, one of the important sculptures series he created during his first years in Paris, and the critical role he played in the art scene of the period.
