BROTO

Continuing with their work to disseminate artists linked to the Balearic Islands, Es Baluard and Institut d’Estudis Baleàrics present Mallorca’s first institutional exhibition on the artist José Manuel Broto (Zaragoza, 1949). "Broto. Great scores" displays a selection of recently-created works produced between 2004 and 2012, with a curatorial project based on the influence music has had over the development of his work.

The semantic load of the deliberately abstract compositions is arranged in same way as the notes in a pentagram are set out in musical language: they are signs which take up the passage of emotion related to rhythms of gestures and colours, space and time. As well as being the receiver, as in the case of music, the spectator is also the performer and vehicular instrument. In this way Broto’s work, with its sequences of voids and profusion of colour ranges, attains a significant metaphorical capacity and richness in plastic terms.

Es Baluard presents a finissage concert of this exhibition on December 12, 2013
