Curator: Juan Antonio Álvarez Reyes & Santiago Olmo
Artist: Luis Gordillo
30 June - 17 September 2017
General Confession is a retrospective of Luis Gordillo, curated by Juan Antonio Álvarez Reyes, director of the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo in Seville and Santiago Olmo, director of the CGAC.
The exhibition is the first by the Sevillian artist in Galicia, and it allows us to follow his work, from the series of informalism-based drawings of the late nineteen-fifities to the paintings and photograph works in which canvases are used as media and computer graphics as tools.
This is a classic retrospective, with numerous little-known or previously unseen works, especially drawings, as well as some works in progress which recreate the climate of his studio.
General Confession, which has been shown at the CAAC (Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art) in Seville and, from this March, at the Koldo Mitxelena Kulturunea in Donostia-San Sebastián, will open at the CGAC in June 2017 and will end its run with exhibitions next autumn in the Alhambra and the José Guerrero Centre in Granada.
