Acromática. Una partida inmortal

Azkuna Zentroa - Alhóndiga Bilbao — 2020

Taking chess as the guiding thread, the exhibition reviews the artist’s career and presents Acromática, her unpublished project that gives title to the exhibition. The journey begins in a first space (Apertura / Opening) housing the installation Naturaleza muerta con perlas negras (Still Life with Black Pearls), a reviewed sculptural piece which sets the poetic tone of the exhibition. In the second space (Medio juego / middlegame), the diverse works that make up the project Acromática have been inspired by one of the most artistic chess games in history, namely the Immortal Game, disputed between Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky in 1851. Finally, in the last space (Fin de partida / Endgame) is shown Línea de tiempo (Timeline), a summary of the artist’s career inspired in the four eras of chess, i.e. romantic, scientific, hyper-modern and dynamic.

According to curator Susana Blas, “the anthological section reviews the artist’s career and divides her work up into four categories which define the eras of chess history. These categories are also four ways of playing and tackling this universal discipline.”

This exhibition is a co-production between Azkuna Zentroa (Bilbao) and Tabacalera Promoción del Arte (Madrid).
