APRIL 12 - OCTOBER 6

A BACKWARD GLANCE: GIORGIO MORANDI AND THE OLD MASTERS

GUGGENHEIM EXHIBITION

BILBAO

The work of Giorgio Morandi (b. 1890; d. 1964), one of the most innovative still-life painters of the twentieth century, is not easy to classify. His enigmatic compositions of bottles, vases, and boxes continue to seduce viewers with their deceptive simplicity and subjective depiction of reality.


MARCH 22 - SEPT 9

GUGGENHEIM EXHIBITION

JENNY HOLZER

THING INDESCRIBABLE

Curated by Petra Joos in collaboration with the artist, the show will highlight Frank Gehry's architecture through site-responsive installations. Works will include Truisms and Inflammatory Essays posters with text in five languages, cast plaques, and painted metal signs that reference Holzer's beginnings in street art, as well as engraved benches and stone sarcophagi. Drawings, objects, and ephemera from the artist's archive will complement these early works.

EXHIBITION

ABC. THE ALPHABET OF THE BILBAO MUSEUM

On 5 October 1908 the City Council and the Provincial Council of Vizcaya signed the founding deed of the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, an institution of reference for both the city and the museum world in general.

To mark its 110th anniversary the museum is now presenting the exhibition ABC. The alphabet of the Bilbao Museum, sponsored by BBK and curated by the writer Kirmen Uribe (born Ondarroa, Vizcaya, 1970). This is an unprecedented type of exhibition which will occupy the entire Old Building, Rooms 1 to 31, following the major redesign of its interior space undertaken in the past few months.

SANTO TOMÁS FAIR

21st of December

This typical festivity marks the beginning of Christmas time. It is a hugely popular major farmers’ market, dating back to the mid-19th century, when most land was cultivated by farmers who passed down the lease from generation to generation and would traditionally come to the main cities to pay the landowners their annual rent. The leaseholders would take advantage of this day to sell their wares and buy other products which they couldn’t obtain in their own villages.
