Menorca

About

On the centenary of his birth, Hauser & Wirth Menorca presents a solo exhibition by Eduardo Chillida, one of the most influential Spanish artists of the 20th Century. Chillida had a strong connection with Menorca, where he worked and spent many summers with his family. The exhibition in Menorca will highlight the artist’s pioneering practice, which encompassed monumental public works as well as sculptures, drawings, collages and prints. Working in diverse media such as iron, steel, stone, alabaster and chamotte clay, Chillida’s practice draws inspiration from his surrounding nature and pays tribute to the organic and elemental forces that lie at the very core of existence.

The exhibition is part of the program ‘Eduardo Chillida 100 years,’ led by the Eduardo Chillida - Pilar Belzunce Foundation, that commemorates the artist’s life and work.
