We are echoing the news of the inauguration of the 2nd travelling venue of the unique exhibition of “Idols: Millennial Glances” at the Regional Archaeological Museum of Madrid (MAR), in which we have participated with the design and exhibition architecture.
We quote the text of the MARQ news:
The MARQ and the MAR have joined forces to bring together 226 unique pieces from Spanish and Portuguese museums in a proposal that brings the public closer to the existence and meaning of idols, understood as genuine and schematic representations of the human body and face of various kinds and forms that are part of the symbolism of recent prehistory in the Iberian Peninsula.
Idols’ can be visited until 10 January 2021 in the temporary exhibition hall at the Sea, which occupies the upper gallery of the building’s cloister in Alcalá de Henares. The exhibition is curated by Primitiva Bueno, Professor of Prehistory at the University of Alcalá de Henares, and Jorge A. Soler, Director of Exhibitions and Curator of Prehistory at the MARQ. The opening ceremony held this morning was also attended by the Director of the MAR, Enrique Baquedano, the Director of the MARQ, Manuel Olcina, and the Managing Director of the MARQ Foundation, José Alberto Cortés.
The design and architecture of the exhibition was directed by the architect Ángel Rocamora and the graphic design by Luis Sanz. The project is complemented by audiovisual resources, directed by Gustavo Vílchez, which present both the exhibition and the research process of the idols and explain their meaning.
“Idols. Miradas millenarias’ brings together pieces from 20 museums and collections, including the National Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Huelva, the Museum of Jaén, the Archaeological Museum of Seville, the Archaeological and Ethnological Museum of Córdoba, and the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Badajoz, Valladolid Museum, Prehistory Museum of Valencia, MARQ Archaeological Museum of Alicante, Camil Visedo Moltó Archaeological Museum of Alcoy, Municipal Museum of Lorca, National Archaeological Museum of Lisbon, ERA Collection and Regional Archaeological Museum of Madrid.
