In collaboration with the French film organisation La Cinémathèque Français, Obra Social ‘la Caixa’ presents its latest exhibition which explores the long and complex relationship between cinema and the visual arts. Based on La Cinémathèque Français’s 20th-century collection, it examines the way in which film is inspired by the visual arts and reciprocally, how cinema has influenced art. This engaging exhibition includes over 300 pieces by 150 artists and filmmakers, to highlight the discourse between the artistic avant-garde in both disciplines since cinema’s earliest years. There will also be a series of screenings of excerpts from more than 60 films and documentaries, as well as a selection of posters, models and costumes on display. From surrealism and expressionism, to the emergence of film in colour and the introduction of audio, the exhibition aims to illustrate the way in which the two disciplines are inextricably linked.
