This morning Elisa Durán, the Deputy General Director of "la Caixa” Banking Foundation; Ignasi Miró, the Director of the Culture Department, and Isabel Fuentes, the Director of CaixaForum Madrid, presented the programme for the coming season at the cultural centre.
CaixaForum Madrid opened its doors on 14 February 2008. This means that "la Caixa” Foundation cultural centre in the Golden Triangle of Art in Madrid will be reaching its tenth anniversary, an event the foundation has decided to celebrate with the public by drawing up an outstanding programme that closely reflects the unique model that it represents in our country.

”la Caixa” Foundation presents the programme for its cultural centre in Madrid for the 2017-2018 season, which is inspired by the celebration in February of the tenth anniversary of its opening in 2008.


During the 2016-2017 season, the 44 exhibitions mounted at the eight CaixaForum centres received more than 2.3 million visitors. CaixaForum Madrid received over 697,000 visitors during that period and hosted more than 1,100 activities.


The first major exhibition of the season will focus on the pioneer of Metaphysical art in The World of Giorgio de Chirico. Dream or Reality, a retrospective on this great Italian master that features over 140 works that underline his considerable contribution to art in the 20th century.


Pop art will feature in the coming season in the form of the famous Campbell’s Soup Can series and the legends of film turned into major icons of contemporary art. The Andy Warhol. Mechanical Art retrospective, the most important survey of this iconic American artist’s work held in Spain to date, takes a comprehensive and multifaceted look at his creative evolution.


Following the success of the Pixar show, animated film will return to CaixaForum Madrid with the Disney. The Art of Storytelling exhibition, in which visitors will have the opportunity to discover the legendary American studio’s epic tradition of narrating stories through iconic characters such as Mickey Mouse, Snow White and Queen Elsa from Frozen.


"la Caixa” Foundation and the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona will be bringing to Madrid their co-produced exhibition Adolf Loos. Private Spaces, which considers the work of this celebrated Austrian architect who influenced other architects such as Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. The display focuses on the revolution in modernity that occurred in urban Viennese culture in the opening years of the 20th century.


Together with the Musée du Louvre and the Musée Louvre-Lens, "la Caixa” Foundation will present the first exhibition in Spain on music in ancient civilisations, from the Far East to Egypt, Greece and Rome


Contemporary photography will also be included in this season in the form of the 20th ”la Caixa” FotoPres, which is being held for the 20th time this year in the form of a collective display of the ten projects that were awarded grants. These works, which have not been seen by the public before, share the same critical perspective on private and social conflicts today.
