CaixaForum Madrid boosts its cultural attractions with an outstanding programme of exhibitions to suit all tastes

Madrid, 20 September 2011

”la Caixa” Welfare Projects presents the programme for its Madrid social and cultural centre for the 2011-2012 season, a wide range of cultural attractions where everyone will find something to enjoy. The starting point will be the most important exhibition of the work of the great French painter Eugène Delacroix in half a century.

A selection of the outstanding contemporary art collections of ”la Caixa” Foundation and MACBA at CaixaForum Madrid will be exploring the use of geometry in the sphere of sculpture and installation since the sixties.

Dance will have a special place as an artistic discipline thanks to the first exhibition in Spain to rediscover the figure of the impresario Sergei Diaghilev and his legendary company, the Ballets Russes.

In the spring of 2012 the rooms of CaixaForum Madrid will be home to an innovatory and comprehensive exhibition of the work of Giovanni Battista Piranesi, one of the most important illustrators of the 18th century. Like no-one else he cultivated the three dimensions and detail in the engraving.

Undiscovered archaeological treasures of Saudi Arabia will show visitors to CaixaForum Madrid an unprecedented panorama of the different cultures that followed one another on the Arabian Peninsula from prehistory to the dawn of modern times, thanks to the recently launched cooperation with the Musée du Louvre.

The ”la Caixa” Welfare Projects social and cultural centre will be increasing the number of activities catering for all tastes so that, more than ever, it will be a meeting point for culture and the citizens.
