ConversationsIVAM Centre Julio González

We invite you to join us in the presentation and subsequent inauguration of Pinazo: identities, a new reading of the work of the artist Ignacio Pinazo Camarlench.

The curator and professor of Art History Vicente Pla will give a conference prior to the opening in which he will give us some of the keys to this exhibition. The exhibition will open in the Pinazo room, recently restored, which houses the Christian-Mudejar wall.

Pinazo: identities proposes a new reading of Pinazo’s work as an artist who, consciously and systematically, dedicated a good part of his reflections, his work process and his work to the representation of people, in their individual and collective dimensions. and genealogical, as transmitters, receivers and interpreters of identities. The proposal would be materialized by deploying this approach across three areas in each of which representational problems would intersect with different regimes of implicit temporalities, political contexts, ways of doing things and gestures.

The IVAM Collection will provide the most important part of the works on display: foreseeably about 50 paintings plus around 100 drawings, which would be complemented by another 20 and 50 respectively from the Pinazo House-Museum, an amount to be determined, but not greater than 20 in total, of paintings and drawings lent by the Academy of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia and a few paintings from private Valencian collections. An important visual role is also proposed for some of the artist’s unpublished texts.

Vicente Pla Vivas (Sagunt, 1962) is a professor in the Department of Art History at the University of Valencia.
