Brancusi retrospective at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents the exhibition “Brancusi-Serra”, considered the museum’s highlight event, bringing together two of the most important sculptors of the 20th century – Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) and Richard Serra (b. 1939) -, in a dialogue of their works.

The exhibition marks a premiere in Spain, including insofar as it is the first retrospective presentation of Brancusi’s body of work. Brancusi, who was born in Romania and lived and worked in Paris since 1904, reduced sculptural forms to the essences, laying the basis of abstract sculpture. Half a century later, the American painter Richard Serra redefined sculpture through his work – minimalist pieces made of steel. The sculptures included in the exhibition – 33 by Brancusi and 22 by Serra – come from particular collections and international museums.

The exhibition is open to the public Tuesday to Sunday, October 8 to April 15, 2012, claiming the museum’s second floor.
