Intersecting memories. Collections as a territory for creation Dialogue with Daniel Giralt-Miracle
Past November 10th we invited the critic and art historian Daniel Giralt-Miracle to talk with Gloria Picazo, curator of the exhibition Intersecting memories. Collections as a territory for creation. The conversation revolved around collecting, the bridges that connect Barcelona with Madrid and the historical context that has brought Cuenca to the forefront of the art world, hosting one of the most important collections of the second half of the 20th century.
