19/2 Jacinto Esteva, exposition and cinematographic retrospective

“What I really like is to go beyond my bounds, cross limits, untimely sneeze”.

Filmoteca de Catalunya, just three subway stops away from our five star hotel in Barcelona, opens an exhibition and retrospective film by Jacinto Esteva Grewe (1937-1985), painter, architect and one of the most prominent members of the Escola de Barcelona. This versatile creator defends his jump from Cubism to an avant-garde buildings architecture by using cinema as an instrument of political reclaim.

The inaugural event will take place on Thursday, 20 February, at 18.30h, and it will feature a projection named “Notes sur l’émigration. 1960 Espagne” (Jacinto Esteva i Paolo Brunatto), little pieces of other films and a panel discussion with the participation of Juan Amorós (director of many films of Jacinto Esteva), Serena Vergano (actress) and Daria Esteva (daughter of the artist).

The exhibition shows the essential aspects of life that inspired Jacinto Esteva, like painting, architecture, cinema, endless landscapes and the risk of major hunt that he discovered in Africa. In addition, the retrospective includes unpublished and other restored material by the Conservation Centre of the Filmoteca de Catalunya.
