The CaixaForum and CosmoCaixa network constitutes a unique model for disseminating knowledge, culture and science as a driving force for progress in society. And, this year, they propose a journey to the very heart of art and science.
Along these lines, the “la Caixa” Foundation, through its Deputy Director General, Elisa Durán, has presented its exhibitions for the 22-23 season. The institution has shown in a single face-to-face event all its cultural programming for the next 12 months. 30 exhibitions will take place in the nine CaixaForum cultural centers in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Zaragoza, Palma, Girona, Tarragona and Lleida and the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, plus eight traveling exhibitions that will tour the Spanish and Portuguese territory. Of the 38 projects, 10 are premieres.
The program invites the public to travel to the heart of archaeology, art, science, photography, comics and cinema with proposals in collaboration with major international institutions, such as the British Museum, the London Science Museum and the Museum of Science of Boston.
Notable novelties include a scientific approach to the creation of Pixar characters , a journey through all the facets of 19th-century portraiture with the Museo Nacional del Prado, a journey through the history of experimental photography with the Center Pompidou, a tour of the most cinematographic and historical spies with La Cinémathèque Française and a visit to the private collections of great artists of the “la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection.
On the other hand, three first-rate initiatives will be launched in a season marked by the union of technology and culture with the arrival of the new digital platform CaixaForum+ , the interactive guide to the Universe Hall of the CosmoCaixa Science Museum and the Vertical Forest of CaixaForum Barcelona.
CaixaForum+ will also be launched this season, a pioneering digital platform that will bring culture and science closer to the general public from anywhere with more than 120 projects and 1,200 content capsules during the first year, including first-rate own productions and international co-productions .
At CaixaForum Madrid you can see some of the novelties mentioned above, such as discovering experimental photography with the Center Pompidou, a tour of the most cinematographic spies and a visit to the private collections of the “la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection.
In addition, the Madrid center will host science exhibitions for the first time and will open the season with an exhibition dedicated to the inventor Nikola Tesla.
