Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma presents “Permanent Collection. Carte Blanche for Jean Marie del Moral. Processes 1978-2018”, a new revision of the Museum Collection made by its director Nekane Aramburu and in which granted a carte blanche to the photographer Jean Marie del Moral. It can be visited between January 31 and June 17, 2018. The inauguration is next January 30 at 8 pm coinciding with the anniversary of the museum.
In this large exhibition that covers the main floor of the museum, the photographer Jean Marie del Moral, from Catalan origins but living in France since his childhood and now installed in Mallorca (Spain), proposes a dialogue with the artistic processes through his own works on portraits and the studies of the creators with an innovative and didactic assembly. Thus, through the photographs of different well-known painters, portraits or photographic series of creative actions, del Moral relates his photographs to the original works, mostly belonging to the museum’s Collection, thanks to which we will know unique moments of some of the lines of art stories.
In 2018 it will be forty years since Jean Marie del Moral investigates the relationship between artists and their place of creation, the workshop or studio where the creative act takes place, the intellectual gesture, the gesture that executes the works within the boundaries of some walls which are the propitiatory space for creation. Looking at the other through one makes the event and the moment understand.
On the occasion of this new revision of the Collection, the museum presents in parallel a book, thanks to the collaboration with Fundación Belondrade, as a very special trip on this journey with Jean Marie del Moral. Likewise, the inauguration of this exhibition coincides with the anniversary of the Es Baluard Museum, which will celebrate the fourteenth anniversary since its foundation, on January 30 at 8.00 pm in Es Baluard.
