Third edition of the Eduardo Chillida School

Third edition of the Eduardo Chillida School

For the third consecutive year, the Eduardo Chillida School returns on September 6 and 7 to Palau Miramar as part of the Summer Courses of the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) with the aim of deepening the the work of the artist from Donostia and explore his relationship with other disciplines. This year's course, which will last a total of 20 hours, has been organized by the UPV-EHU, Chillida Leku and the Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce Foundation, and will allow an approach to the work of one of the great references of the history of 20th century art from music, poetry, architecture, art or philosophy, verifying the permanence of its legacy, always in dialogue with various subjects.

The approach to his work from different perspectives will be possible thanks to the variety of areas of knowledge in which the participating speakers are immersed, who this year are: María Bolaños, art historian and previously director of the Museum National Sculpture of Valladolid, the philosophers Ana María Rabe and Ricardo Pinilla, Renato Bocchi, professor of architecture, Kosme de Barañano, professor of art and curator of exhibitions, and José María Sánchez Verdú, composer and professor of composition.

"Echoes and intersections"

Under the title Echoes and Intersections, the third edition of the Eduardo Chillida School - which can be attended in person or followed remotely - aims, in addition to reflecting on the imprint that Chillida has left on the art of 20th century, highlight its importance in other areas. "Ecos" refers to Oyarak I (Ecos I, in Basque), an iron sculpture created in 1954, in its beginnings in the forge of Manuel Illarramendi d'Hernani, which is part of the museum's collection.

The work of Eduardo Chillida maintains a close relationship with the world of sounds, which will also be shown in the course. "Echoes" leads to this linking of his first sculptures with the musical, which in a certain way materialize "sounds" that move in space. The idea of "echoes" accompanies the invitation of this program to understand the resonances that Eduardo Chillida's work has had on other artists and thinkers, as does the concept of "intersections", reflecting as in the his artistic creation meets and intersects other disciplines such as music, poetry, philosophy or architecture.

School hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and from 9:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Palau de Miramar.
