This way 8 years of exhibition were celebrated in Siloes.

2. The exhibition of Elizabeth Peyton in New York, the young and international contemporary artist that more we like, both in the pictorial language and in the subject-matter that it tackles.

3. The exhibition Machines and Souls of the Museum Queen Sophia, who assembled for the first time in this space, to the creators of the contemporary art and the new technologies, beginning a big way for the institutional legitimization of the average art, net art, digital art and vídeoarte.

Lucio Muñoz – Graphic Work is the title of the retrospective of the Spanish artist in the gallery Malrborough. The appointment is April 17 in the head office of Madrid of the gallery.

The graphic work of Muñoz assembles the exhibition between the 80s and 90s. This selection of the work realizes of this artist like one of the biggest representatives of the Spanish abstraction of last century.

For the criticism, the work of Muñoz is both an expression of the Spanish art and a significant opening in the international panorama of his time. Also the use of the wood as support and reason of his work, it re-updates the engraving and the graph.
