On December 20, the Pep Camps exhibition was presented. Time and Painting, a tribute from the city of Girona to the Girona artist on his 60th birthday. Aquesta mostra s'acompanya de la publicació d'un catàleg de 220 pàgines, amb textos en català, castellà i anglès signats pel comissari de l'exposició, Toni Alvárez, Iñaki de la Fuente artista i Sebastià Goday, gestor cultural. The publication contains the entire list of exhibited works and can be found for sale in bookstores in the Girona regions.
During the press conference, held on December 20 at 11:15 a.m. at the Casa de la Cultura in Girona, one of the managers of the Fundació Fita de Girona was present, who commented that "the catalog of this anthology is another step in the sample in which we want to give importance to the factor of time".
For his part, the curator of the exhibition Toni Alvárez has pointed out that "the exhibition highlights the travels of Pep Camps, asking the continent of Asia as a point of departure and above all how they influenced him afterwards. The work of Camps is very easy to identify and we can see that there is a very clear message of no to war".
In the presentation, Camps commented that "for me it is a great privilege to be able to exhibit in these four places in Girona: the Casa de la Cultura, the Fundació Fita (Casa de la Cultura), the Municipal School of Art de la Mercè and Casa Masó" and added that "I have stripped a lot in this exhibition and visitors will be able to notice that I paint with my back to the world".
Finally, the vice-president responsible for the Area of Culture, Education and New Technologies, Sports and Welfare of the Diputació de Girona and delegate president of the House of Culture and the Conservatory of Music, Albert Piñeira i Brosel, wanted to emphasize that the painting of Pep Camps responds to a certain moment in the artist's life, when you can appreciate the comings and goings of his styles and currents and to summarize the four most characteristic features that would identify this exhibition would be "the trajectory, creative freedom, honesty and the message".
The exhibition can be visited until March 11, 2023, from Monday to Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the evening. It will be closed on holidays.
