In Venezuela, the exhibition "Gaudí: the forge of form" pays homage to Gaudí
In May, Edwin Willasmil, an artist and professor from the Dirección de Extensión de Cultura in the University of Yacambú, Estado Lara (Venezuela), and the artist Elba Martínez were received in the Gaudí 2002 Technical Bureau, in Barcelona.
The cultural representatives explained the travelling exhibition "Gaudí, the forge of form", which was presented from 7th to 28th April 2002 in Barquisimeto, with the support of the Ateneo Ciudad de Barquisimeto, the Consejo Nacional de la Cultura, the Compañía Anónima Teléfonos de Venezuela and the University of Yacambú.
The exhibition will tour Venezuela to pay homage to the figure of the Catalan architect and will soon be presented at the Centro de Arte de Maracaibo Lía Bermúdez.
It includes sketches and sculptures of mixed techniques, with a predominance of ceramics, offering a modern evocation of the primary elements of Gaudí's work while incorporating local features.
