Imaginary worlds and impossible constructions: Escher’s universe arrives to Madrid

2 February, 2017 - 3 February, 2017

Escher

As of February 2, 2017, Gaviria Palace -the new exhibition space in Madrid run by Arthemisia Group- will host the exhibition Escher, a retrospective that has been  internationally acclaimed. After its presentation in the Palazzo Reale di Milano, 200 artworks by the Dutch graphic and mathematic will be presented to the Spanish public.

Other major exhibitions dedicated to the artist have been presented in Italy in the latest years: in Rome, at the Chiostro del Bramante and in Reggio Emilia at the Magnani Roca Foundation.

M. C. Escher’s works often depict impossible constructions, studies of infinity, and interlocking geometric patterns which gradually change into entirely different forms.

Many of the worlds he created revolve around impossible objects such as the Necker cube and the Penrose triangle.
