Eduardo Chillida: San Sebastián

Chillida_Mural izdo..inddEduardo Chillida (1924-2002) Bideak/Caminos/Paths, Sala kubo-kutxa Aretoa, San Sebastián, 20 June – 28 September, 2014.
The first survey exhibition since 1992 about the Basque sculptor to open in the city of his birth, where he lived and developed his career over more than 50 years. This exhibition of 140 works, large and small, sculptures and works on paper, particularly focuses on Chillida as a defender of the environment. The earliest work dates from 1954 and the latest from 2000, when he sculpted his homage to his wife Pili in alabaster, and includes drawings for his most emblematic monumental sculpture Peine del viento (1990), created at the suggestion of his wife, which has become symbolic of the San Sebastián coastline.
