Featured Exhibition: ABC: The Alphabet of the Museo de Bellas Artes, Bilbao, until 2 June

exposicion_slider_274_990This exhibition marking the 110th anniversary of Bilbao’s Museo de Bellas Artes aims to provide a path through the museum’s collections via a display of 110 works selected by the writer Kirmen Uribe (born 1970), using alphabetically ordered words composed in four languages, Basque, Spanish, English and French, to contextualise the works. In this way Uribe wishes to fuse art and literature. The show brings together paintings by Cranach the Elder, Martin de Vos, Orazio Gentileschi, Gauguin, Mary Cassatt, and Francis Bacon, with masterpieces by Ribera, Murillo, Francisco de Zurbarán, Goya, Sorolla, Ignacio Zuloaga, Eduardo Chillida, Jorge Oteiza, and Antoni Tàpies. Works on paper by artists such as Hockney are shown with sports posers by Arteta. The show inaugurates the newly remodelled rooms 1-31 in the old building.
