Mula, 27th June 2020. - The Cristobal Gabarron Museum presents this Thursday, July 2, 'The world flows: two views on the same reality', an exhibition organized by ONCE Foundation with the aim of recognizing and disseminating the work of artists with disabilities in the art circuits and national museums, thus promoting their access and participation in the art world.
The exhibition, which has already toured several Spanish locations, is presented this Thursday at 11. 00 hours, at the Cristóbal Gabarrón Museum, located in San Francisco Street, 14 in Mula, in an event that is expected to be attended by the General Director of People with Disabilities of the CARM, Concepción Ruiz Caballero, the president of the Territorial Council of the ONCE in Murcia, Teresa Lajarín, the territorial delegate of the ONCE in the same community, Juan Carlos Morejón, and the head of the Department of Culture and Leisure of the ONCE Foundation, Mercè Luz. The Museum will be assisted by its director, Cris Gabarrón, and Juan García Sandoval, from the Programming Committee.
With this exhibition, Fundación ONCE aims to disseminate the work of artists with disabilities among people professionally related to the art world or who have not had the opportunity to visit the Biennial of Contemporary Art organized by the entity. Thus, the exhibition, which is accessible, is made up of some twenty works by as many artists present in the seven editions of Fundación ONCE's Biennial of Contemporary Art held to date.
It is made up of works by creators with some kind of disability (physical, sensory, intellectual and mental illness) or by artists who, without having a disability, use it as a theme for inspiration. Among the national creators, the presence of Carme Ollé, a veteran photographer with a visual disability, and more than 150 exhibitions in her career stand out. In this show she exhibits the work 'Jaque Mate', which symbolizes the relationship between nature and women.
The Cristóbal Gabarrón Museum, inaugurated on June 8, 2005, by Their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Asturias, today the King and Queen of Spain, is a space for the knowledge and diffusion of the work of Cristóbal Gabarrón (Mula, April 25, 1945), as well as the current contemporary creation.
The permanent exhibition, organized in 8 exhibition spaces, allows to make a trip through the artistic life of Gabarrón, analyzing the different facets of his pictorial and sculptural creation. All this makes the museum a reference point in the world for the work of the most international Mülenen artist in the region, as well as one of the main Spanish artists of his generation. The museum has two spaces dedicated to temporary exhibitions, Room 1 - 2 and La Bodega, as the most experimental area, and they are especially aimed at promoting the work of emerging artists, whether local, national or international, serving as a platform for contemporary creation as well as a sounding board for Murcian art and culture outside its borders. To which is added the recent creation of its Library - Documentary Centre.
