Born in Barcelona in 1946, Susana Solano is one of Spain’s most celebrated artists. Although she began exhibiting her work quite late on - an exhibition at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona in 1980 - by the end of the decade and moving into the early nineties, prestigious international institutions were holding exhibitions of her work.
She is part of a renowned generation of Spanish sculptors who garnered worldwide acclaim, such as Juan Muñoz, Cristina Iglesias and Jaume Plensa. She began with painting, and also working with wood in her early years, but soon focused on the use of metals, while also occasionally working with video, sound recordings, wax, plastics and wicker.
This new exhibition will mainly feature her large-scale works, but will include photographs and works on paper. Her well-known works will feature (those held in museum collections, such as Fundació Vila Casas), but also other lesser-known works and some as yet unexhibited pieces will also be shown.
