El encuentro entre Cai Guo-Qiang y El Greco, documentado por Isabel Coixet Una exposición única en el Museo del Prado quedará inmortalizada por la cineasta Isabel Coixet. Cai Guo-Qiang (China, 1957) será el primer artista vivo que concibe obra inédita para exponerla en este museo, culminada in situ. La inauguración, el próximo 25 de octubre, será también el estreno del documental El espíritu de la pintura, dirigido por Coixet, que permitirá al público ser testigo del proceso de creación del artista. La exposición nace de la admiración hacia el espíritu y la espiritualidad del Greco que siente el artista chino, conocido por sus instalaciones con pólvora y que fue responsable de los fuegos artificiales de los Juegos Olímpicos de Pekín. El propio artista ha declarado que tenía el sueño de entablar una especie de diálogo con los grandes maestros de la pintura española desde que visitó el Prado en 2009 y en 2014.

Sarah Beck The Light is a sculpture that honours the final days of the tungsten light bulb. As of 2015 the light bulb as we know it, also called the Edison bulb, will no longer be produced in North America. While this marks an advance in environmental responsibility, it also marks the death of a technology that changed the world. The light bulb ushered in a new era with an impact was so great that it came to symbolize a bright idea. As this technology fades into the past, The Light is an epitaph that invites contemplation of change, hope, passage and death. “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” is a line from a poem by Dylan Thomas titled “Do not go gentle into that good night”.

Cerith Wyn Evans Artists Cerith Wyn Evan’s artistic practice focuses on how ideas can be communicated through form. His conceptual work incorporates a diverse range of media including installation, sculpture, photography, film and text. Wyn Evans began his career as a filmmaker producing short, experimental films and collaborative works but since the 1990s has created artworks that focus on language and perception, with a precise clarity towards their manifestation in space. He employs strategies of exhibition making that are often site-specific, viewing exhibitions as a catalyst to produce a reservoir of possible meanings and discursive experiences. His poetic work has a highly refined aesthetic, deeply informed by film, music, literature and philosophy.
