MUSAC PRESENTS SIX NEW EXHIBITIONS ON JANUARY 26th

Cerith Wyn Evans inaugurates at MUSAC …visibleinvisible, which overwiews the sophisticated work of this key figure in the European art scene. Californian artist Dave Muller presents I Like Your Music I Love Your Music, a selection of recent work around his key theme: the cultural value of music. Blanca Li unfurls in I´ll show you how to dance the many aspects of her multidimensional work as choreographer, dancer, performer and filmmaker. Together with these exhibitions MUSAC presents H Box, a nomad screening space under Benjamin Weill’s art direction and supported by Hermès, which will display eight new video creations by international young artists. The space Laboratorio 987 will host until March the photographic exhibition Benicàssim. The Festival; and in the Showcase Project a new exhibition, The Published Image, will focus on four leading publishing houses’ work in the field
of photography.

Cerith Wyn Evans is an essential point of reference in London’s art-scene and his sophisticated work has inspired many artists emerging in the latest generation. His work has been unequivocally conceived and shaped by its critical and historical relation to the possibilities and vicissitudes of film and writing. Its unfamiliar relations between space, light, language and objects, as well as the alluring and blurring nature among them, have been taken from those disciplines. …visibleinvisible, his first solo show in Spain, opens at MUSAC on January 26th.

Exhibition title: I Like Your Music I Love Your Music
Artist: Dave Muller (San Francisco, California, 1964)
