'Still Life with Rotting Fruit', David Hoffos, 1996, Installation Alberta Foundation of Arts, Edmonton (Canada)

CCCB in Barcelona is holding an exhibition “THE BAROQUE (D)EF(F)ECT“, showcasing a meticulous examination of the relation between the Hispanic myth and its principal survival strategy: the baroque. Of all the images used in Spanish-speaking countries to construct and legitimate their identity and memory, the baroque has been the most lasting, widespread and influential, often at the cost of other equally important threads. Using cinema, videos, documentaries, animation and installations, the exhibition presents visitors with some alternatives in the debate on the relations between art and power in societies submerged in conflicts of historical memory.

Date: November 9th, 2010 – February 27th, 2011
Opening hours: 11:00-20:00 (Thus until 22:00)
