The Hortensia Herrero Foundation are delighted to bring the work of celebrated British artist Julian Opie (London, 1958) to Valencia starting next May 27. It will do so through a temporary exhibition of monumental sculptures that will be located in the heart of the city. Specifically, in the Plaza del Colegio del Patriarca and in the La Nau Cultural Centre of the University of Valencia.
Following a two-year hiatus since the exhibition of Jaume Plensa in the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, the Hortensia Herrero Foundation will bring a presentation of new and existing works by Julian Opie to the Plaza del Colegio del Patriarca, in the cloister and the nearby University of Valencia’s La Nau exhibition rooms, transforming them through animation on LED screens, light box paintings and monumental sculpture. These works, some of which will have their debut in Valencia, focus on the human figure as it strides through the city, alone or in a crowd; strolling, running to catch a train, or waiting in the square with folded arms.
