4 October 2018 - 20 January 2019   CUESTIÓN DE FE / CUESTIÓN DE TROZO

Momento del ciclo ‘Totalidad e infinito. Economias de la transferencia en otro(s) tiempo(s) para el arte’

'Totalidad y infinito' is a curatorial research project that raises the idea of ​​artistic exhibition as a great act of transfert, a space in which art, subjects and things are committed to exchange experiences in the area of sensibility. Under this concept, an expository program is structured that seeks to reflect on the world that builds our reality, reaching to the conclusion that everything human that is in it can be distorted, questioned and even disarticulated to infinity.

17 October - 25 November 2018  

The artist Noé Bermejo reflects on the bounds of memory and on borderlines between the fiction and the reality of our own memories. A methacrylate structure with the shape of an engram (the graphical representation of the neural pathways which our brain sets in motion to evoke a memory) holds a full collection of empty photo frames, mirrors and other photosensitive material, creating an evocative and disconcerting play of light and shadows, presences and absences which shows us the fragility of our memories and how delicate is our identity and our own life storage.​ The artist collected more than 500 photo frames to build an intended metaphor of human memory as an archive and a physical space for storage but also like a complex and extremely delicate machinery generating changeable, ephemeral and recurring pseudorealities.

Ángeles Marco: VERTIGO

Ángeles Marco (Valencia, 1947–2008) is one of the most important artists in the generation of artists that spearheaded the renovation of sculpture in Spain in the 1980s and 1990s. She was associated with the theoretical assumptions of international Conceptual Art and Post-Minimalism. This exhibition presents a carefully chosen selection of sculptures and drawings and a considerable amount of archive material representative of her entire career and not previously seen, concentrating on the series of works produced in her early years – Espacios ambiguos (Ambiguous Spaces), Entre lo real y lo ilusorio (Between the Real and the Illusory), El Tránsito (The Transition) and Salto al vacío (Leap into the Void), and on the works made from 2000 to the artist’s death.


23 March 2017 - 30 December 2018 Julio González’s constellations

In this new presentation of the room devoted to the Julio González collection, viewed from our current perspective and sensibility, the intention is to emphasise the basic concepts of the experience of sculpture, such as the aesthetic handling of materials and their arrangement in space, IVAM explained. Julio Gonzalez, Man of Iron, (1876-1942),  was a painter, sculptor and architect of form and light. He figures among the greatest artist of his time: Braque, Miro, Mondrian and of course Picasso.

In 1957 María Benlliure Ortiz donated the family home where her father, the famous painter José Benlliure Gil (Valencia 1855-1937), lived and worked along with numerous works of art and interesting objects within the house to the Valencia City Hall. Works by renowned artists of that time such as Sorolla, Muñoz Degraín, Rusinyol, Luna Novicio, Nagy, etc can also be seen in this museum.

Fundación Bancaja presents « Uiso. El suicidio de la pintura » which brings together the most recent work by Uiso Alemany, conceived mostly for the exhibition and carried out during the last three years. The exhibition reveals the creative attitude of the Valencian artist always in search of the extreme possibilities of painting from the contemporary and, at the same time, rescuing characteristic features of primitivism. Uiso Alemany (born in Valencia in 1941) was one of the founders of the Bult Group. Uiso Alemany painting has been exhibited in the main Spanish cities and in countries such as China, Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Morocco or Israel.
