    Can we travel back to our childhood, and feel the same emotions we felt when we were kids?

    ”la Caixa” Foundation and La Cinémathèque Française, in partnership with the Regional Government of Galicia as part of the holy year of St James, Xacobeo 2021 are presenting an exhibition devised as a trip back to childhood; a trip intended for all ages, adults and children. On the one hand, it invites us to witness to how cinema has managed to capture childhood over more than one hundred years and on the other hand, to relive emotions just as we experience them during the early years of our lives.

    From 15 December 2020 to 12 January 2021

    Throughout most of humanity’s history, the planets that form our solar system were no more than mysterious dots of light that moved slowly among the fixed stars. Even after the invention of the telescope in 1609, they only appeared as small, blurry discs, on which just a few details could be made out at best. This situation changed dramatically with the advent of astronautics in 1957, when the launch of Sputnik 1 signalled the start of the space age.

    In the six decades that have followed, humans have sent robotic ambassadors (unmanned space probes) to every corner of the solar system and, for the first time in history, we finally have reliable knowledge of what our planetary neighbours look like. These worlds that are visible to us now seem as real and as tangible as our own planet Earth. No less importantly, we have been able to see our home in the cosmos for what it is: a marvellous, but at the same time small and fragile, oasis of life in space.

    Further information about the exhibition "Otherworlds. A Journey Through the Solar System with Michael Benson"

    Goal
    To make culture more accessible to the general public and explore the beauty and diversity of planetary landscapes.

    What we offer
    Forty spectacular images of the planets in our solar system that were captured by NASA and ESA probes and selected and processed by American photographer Michael Benson.
    A visual legacy that is not only of scientific significance, but also represents an exceptional chapter in the history of photography.

    From 15 December 2020 to 14 January 2021
    Exhibition in collaboration with Fundación Caja Canarias

    Land of Dreams provides an unapologetic insight into the uniqueness and asymmetry of rural life in India. A scenario where the past merges with the present, and the natural with the supernatural and fantasy.

    Through the photographs, the exhibition aims to give a voice to the women of the rural communities of Anantapur (Andhra Pradesh) and highlight their power to transform their surroundings. Obstinate and disproportionate, Cristina García Rodero has been able to immerse herself in this world, blend into the joy and suffering of those who cover the nuances of their very existence with both colour and elegance.

    This exhibition forms part of the Art in the Street programme through which the ”la Caixa” Foundation seeks to bring art closer to people, outside the usual settings of museums and exhibition halls.

    From 17 December 2020 to 15 January 2021

    Picasso's Guernica is one of the most famous and widely reproduced, admired and reinterpreted works in the history of art, and an icon of the 20th century.

    Originally created for the Paris Exhibition of 1937 as propaganda for the Second Spanish Republic, the painting was later used to support refugees from the Civil War. After the Second World War it was deposited at the MoMA and became a symbol of modern art.

    Guernica has travelled far and wide: from Paris to New York, from São Paulo to Stockholm, from London to Milan, from Munich to Madrid, as well as many other cities in Europe and America. It has also become a symbol for a host of civil protests and unrest: from the Vietnam War in the 1960s to the war in Syria and the refugee crisis.

    The impact of Picasso's work, and in particular Guernica, challenges the memory and visual imagery of our time and is still entirely valid today.

    From 18 December 2020 to 12 January 2021
    Exhibition in collaboration with National Geographic

    This journey from the Arctic to Antarctica takes a look at some of the most stunning natural landscapes on Earth, many of which are considered “hotspots”: ecoregions that are significant reservoirs of biodiversity, with a large number of endemic species (species only found there), and are seriously threatened by human activity.

    More than half of the world’s plant species and over one third of the mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians inhabit just 2.3 % of the Earth’s surface, and the majority live in tropical habitats that are swiftly being destroyed. The alarming loss of biological diversity is accelerating at an unprecedented rate.

    According to Conservation International, there are currently 38 hotspots around the world. Although these areas once covered approximately 16 % of the Earth’s surface, today 86 % of their habitat has been destroyed.

    Further information about the exhibition "From Pole to Pole. A journey to awe-inspiring places in nature with National Geographic"

    Goal
    To show the beauty and diversity of the planet’s natural settings, as well as the threats they face.
    To create a space for reflecting on the effects of the high rate of species extinctions and the destruction of our planet as a result of human activity.

    What we offer
    Fifty-two spectacular large-format images from the National Geographic archive, including the work of prestigious nature photographers such as Frans Lanting, Paul Nicklen, Michael Nichols and Tim Laman.

    What makes an everyday object become an hidden hero?

    It must have something to do with an ingenious but easily understandable idea. Hidden heroes are objects that have been produced millions of times but are still indispensable in our daily lives. These are objects that have proved their worth time and time again and which have remained essentially unaltered for decades or, in other words, are everyday classics.

    With these objects, images and videos presented in this exhibition we hope to show four particularly interesting aspects:

    1. Innovation: the fascinating history of how these objects were invented.

    2. Production: the technical conditions of their successful large-scale production.

    3. Evolution: their historical development and the amazing diversity of models and variations generated.

    4. Inspiration: their appearance which continues to inspire the work of artists and designers.

    Exhibition in collaboration with City hall of Madrid and Teatro Real

    Symphony offers the audience the chance to experience and feel classical music like never before thanks to VR technology: like one of the musicians in an orchestra.

    The audience will be given the opportunity to understand, through image and music, how such a sophisticated and beautiful world as the symphonic orchestra is built from the simplicity of a piece of wood or the sound of a bit of metal.

    Entering inside an instrument or travelling to the soul of music are just some of the possibilities that Symphony offers through the great conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the 100-plus musicians who form part of the prestigious Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

    A guided tour with compositions by L. v. Beethoven, G. Mahler and L. Bernstein playing a leading role.

    From 26 January to 25 February 2021

    Continuing with the tradition of holding exhibitions related to the world of cinema, ”la Caixa” Foundation presents a journey back in time to the years that saw the birth of the seventh art, via a visionary artist: Georges Méliès.

    Méliès revolutionised cinema: he built the very first film studio and promoted the production and distribution of films. He also worked as an actor and wrote and directed his own films. Thanks to all this, today he's considered to be the creator of cinematography.

    Georges Méliès was a precursor. Great plots, editing techniques and coloured films are the origin of one of the most popular and profitable genres in the history of the seventh art: fantasy films. Méliès' films convey vitality, creativity, illusion, fantasy and a sense of humour, and prove that anything is possible in the cinema.

    Exhibition produced with the participation of La Cinémathèque Française.
