Contemporary Art at Madrid CaixaForum

Miguel Barcelo elephant

The public square in front to the CaixaForum Madrid will host monumental bronze cast sculpture of a seven meter high elephant by the artist Miquel Barcelo until June 13.

The sculpture is part of the exhibition that opened its doors on February 10, 2010 and will encompass the trajectory of the Majorcan artist since 1983.

It is the first time that Miquel Barceló has displayed this monumental sculpture, from 2009, as part of an exhibition. The elephant will invite visitors to enter the Madrid CaixaForum and experience the creations of Barcelo, an essential figure in the Spanish contemporary arts scene.

140 works will be part of the show which includes ceramics, sculpture, drawings, watercolors, posters, books and traveldiaries. Barceló himself will be present so the spectator can better understand the creative process of this artist of international importance.
