"El Modernismo" - Sorolla to Picasso, 1880 - 1918 -opens in Lausanne today

One of Ana Perez Pereda's sculptures,

The Fondation de L'Hermitage in Lausanne, Switzerland today, 28 January, inaugurates its El Modernismo exhibition of about 100 works by Sorolla, Picasso, Anglada,Casas, Beruete, Regoyos, Rusinol, Zuloaga and Pinanco and Miro.

The Hermitage foundation showcases the Spanish avant garde during this critical geo-political period when Spain lost its empire.

El Modernismo runs to May 29.

The Hermitage said most of the paintings come from the Prado, the Sorolla Museum, the Thyssen-Bomemisza Museum and Valencia Fine Arts Museum. A few others from the Musee d'Orsay and the Musee Rodin complete the exhibit.

In another major February happening, Spanish sculptor Ana Perez Pereda and painter Jose Molina for three weeks of frenzied creatvity on the NUI Galway, Ireland campus beginning next month will create hanging sculptures entitled Jovian Sequences, connecting science and art.

Their works in progress happening coincides with NUI's annual Muscailt festival of drama, music, art and comedy, which runs from 7 to 12 February.

Molina's drawings and oil paintings defy generalization.

It's as though Picasso, Dali, and Miro decided to get high and collaborate.My favorite is his "Sentiementos Collection."

After viewing a YouTube video of Pereda's spartan metal circular/angular and kinetic works, this will be quite the artistic metamorphasis on the NUI campus of 16,000.

The performance process may be more eye catching than the results?

This year's theme: Exploration.

Rock on and practice peace and love.

See ArtTraveler videos on YouTube; and look in on the photo gallery from Dutch walkers Joost and Rob on day 17 of their pilgramage from Seville to Santiago de Compostela (Via de la Plata).
