”la Caixa” Social Outreach Programmes presents the activities at its social and cultural centre in Madrid for the 2010-2011 season. The programme is designed to be all-embracing, accessible, with something for all audiences.
Over the coming season, CaixaForum Madrid will host an exhibition suggesting a totally new look at the artistic and intellectual relationship between two key 20th-century figures, Salvador Dalí and Federico García Lorca, during the eight years they spent together at the Residencia de Estudiantes.
Moreover, photography will occupy a prominent position on the programme, with the first ever solo exhibition devoted to Jacques-Henri Lartigue, a leading figure in this field in the 20th century, and a show by Isabel Muñoz focusing on the theme of childhood around the world.
Madrid will also host a show featuring veritable jewels from Teotihuacan, the most important pre-Hispanic city on the American continent, which held sway for centuries, whilst the most up-to-date art will be represented by an exhibition exploring the powerful influence of the cinema and the image in contemporary culture.
This year, the ”la Caixa” Social Outreach Programmes’ Social and Cultural Centre will also increase the number of activities aimed at all audiences, with talks on current affairs, history, poetry and the cinema, as well as an extensive music programme, committed, more than ever, to promoting ancient music, as well as world and experimental music.
