Inauguration of the exhibition Traveling to paint. Sorolla in Galicia

23 November 2023 - 10 March 2024

Curated by Sonia Martínez Requena - Museo de Belas Artes da Coruña Nueva ventana

The temporary exhibition 'Traveling to paint. Sorolla in Galicia', at the Museo de Belas Artes da Coruña, has been organized together with the Museo Sorolla and the Fundación Museo Sorolla.

Sorolla's life was characterized by always carrying a suitcase in his hand. From his beginnings as an artist he understood that inspiration and art had to be sought and that this meant having to travel to meet other places and people, to be in the right circles and live experiences linked to specific spaces. Traveling to paint. Sorolla in Galicia' shows that tireless search for another light and color that took him to Galicia on several occasions, as well as part of the production he made for the great commission of Archer M. Huntington's Vision of Spain.

The exhibition is curated by Sonia Martínez Requena, curator of the Sorolla Museum, and seeks to understand what Sorolla's trips to Galicia were like and what remained of Galicia in Sorolla. It has more than seventy works including oil paintings, drawings, color notes, documents, photographs and ethnographic objects selected from the Museo de Belas Artes da Coruña and the Sorolla Museum. All of these exhibits provide a context for the artist's relationship with Galicia, delving into his vision of our landscapes and people as well as his friendships and working relationships with his Galician colleagues.

Joaquín Sorolla - Light in movement

8 November 2023 - 3 March 2024 - Carlsberg Glyptotek Nueva ventana

Curated by Enrique Juncosa

On November 7, the exhibition "Joaquín Sorolla - Light in Motion" was inaugurated at the Glyptotheque in Copenhagen. The exhibition has been developed by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation in collaboration with the Sorolla Museum. It is organized by Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and curated by Enrique Juncosa, coinciding with the centenary of the painter's death.

It is the first solo exhibition in the Nordic region dedicated to the work of Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla, coinciding with the state visit of the King and Queen of Spain to Copenhagen.

The exhibition presents key works from the Sorolla Museum's collection set in garden scenes, landscapes, beach scenes and portraits. The works are shown in dialogue with five works by five contemporary Spanish artists of different generations. In their respective practices, the artists consider Sorolla's work on several levels, including his use of techniques, themes, and motifs. The five contemporary Spanish artists are: Soledad Sevilla, Miquel Barceló, Juan Uslé, Miki Leal and Belén Rodríguez.

In the Danish context, Sorolla's work has much in common with the work of the Skagen painters: in particular, that of Peder Severin Krøyer. Sorolla and Krøyer were contemporaries, and Sorolla is often colloquially referred to as "the Spanish Krøyer". This is not only because of the artists' common interest in plein air painting, but also because they both created atmospheric and luminous paintings, capturing nature, people's lives and scenes of everyday life: fishermen at work, young women walking on the beach, shady gardens, and the ever-changing sea.

La València de Joaquín Sorolla

20 October 2023 - 3 February 2024

Curated by Mª Isabel Justo Fernández - Casa-Museo BenlliureNueva ventana

The Casa Museo Benlliure hosts the exhibition La València de Joaquín Sorolla, an exhibition with which the City Council of Valencia joins the celebration of the first centenary of the death of the brilliant Valencian painter.

The exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Sorolla Museum in Madrid, proposes through a careful selection of more than fifty works, including paintings, color notes and drawings, a journey through the most emblematic and characteristic spaces of Valencia around 1900. Corners, architectures and landscapes of a city in full transformation towards modernity, some of them today disappeared, which were scrutinized by the attentive gaze of the painter of light and perpetuated for posterity through his pencils and brushes.

The Lonja de València, the Micalet tower, the Pouet de Sant Vicent or the Real bridge, accompany numerous images of the port of Valencia, the Albufera and the gardens of the Malvarrosa or the Cabañal in a visual journey through the Valencia of 1900.

An intimate and personal exhibition presented in a space that the painter knew well: the house of his fraternal friend and colleague José Benlliure. An evocative and appropriate setting that will undoubtedly further enrich the experience of those who visit the exhibition in the coming months.

Sorolla Through Light

5 October 2023 - 18 February 2024 - Fundación Bancaja, Valencia Nueva ventana

Curated by Consuelo Luca de Tena and Blanca Pons-Sorolla

Management and production of multimedia content: Kamarchina under the supervision of Gianfranco Ianuzzi, a pioneer in immersive art.

The Bancaja Foundation is organising the exhibition ‘Sorolla Through Light’, in co-production with Light Art Exhibitions and the Sorolla Museum and with the collaboration of the Generalitat Valenciana. This extends the tour of the exhibition that was on display at the Royal Palace in Madrid until September 2023.

The exhibition combines original works by the painter, many of them from private collections rarely shown to the public, with digital recreations using new technologies. The visitor thus visits different spaces: some dedicated to enhancing sensory experiences through light, colour and movement by means of new digital technologies; others with original works by Sorolla; and, finally, an exceptionally high-quality virtual reality experience.

It is a new type of art exhibition that aims to immerse the visitor in Sorolla's universe. All these sensations intensify the impressions and emotions created by Sorolla in his paintings, which have been selected for their quality and importance within the painter’s production.
