Brossa Poetry in Vitoria


Joan Brossa (Barcelona, 1919/98) developed his artistic practice since the nineteen-forties in a socio-political context marked by Franco’s dictatorship and in a cultural setting characterised by the absence of avant-garde and innovative proposals. A frequent collaborator with other artists—musicians, filmmakers, dancers, humourists and even magicians—, his work is constantly playing at breaking with convention and the limits between disciplines, striving for an aesthetic renewal based on literary and artistic investigation. Right up to the time of his death, he never ceased to search for new forms of expression and to experiment with different mediums.

The “Poesia Brossa” exhibition aimed to showcase the polyhedral artist’s work by putting the emphasis on reconsidering his influence and interrelations with the practice of the artists Marcel Mariën, Nicanor Parra and Ian Hamilton-Finlay. Such links allow to establish numerous parallelisms, seek dialogues and tensions and emphasise the performance aspects of Brossa's poetic practice.

After being showcased in Barcelona (Macba Museum, from 21 September 2017 to 25 February 2018), the exhibition has gone to Vitoria, where it could be visited from the end of May to September 2018.
