A new exhibition opens at Es Baluard, the Modern and Contemporary Art Museum at the end of the Paseo Mallorca, tomorrow. It features 57 contemporary sculptures from various Majorcan public and private collections. The Museum's director, Marie Claire Uberquoi, and the curator for the exhibition, Dolores Duran, presented the exhibition yesterday. It can be seen until September 22, at the aljibe (former water tank) exhibition area and the museum's upper terrace. Uberquoi said that the works ranged from 1905 to 2005, a period during which sculpture “has undergone a great metamorphosis” and it features significant works from all the artistic movements of the 20th century, although it is not an historical overview. Duran said that the works selected “form a very heterogeneous group” and their only common link is that they all belong to Majorcan collections.
The Palma city council has loaned a work by Markus Lüpertz, the Balearic government one by Gloria Mas and the Council of Majorca one by Josep Maria Sirvent. Other artists represented include Picasso, Anthony Caro, Alexander Calder, Lynn Chadwick, Thomas Harris, Keith Haring, Ben Jakober, Man Ray, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Pablo Serrano and Yannick Vu.
