Split History and its fragments have left us various forms of art where the body, the nude, stands as a story. This fragmented history that has reached the present day survives in the collections of a gallery where art history awaits its turn, in which the exhibition connects us directly with the classical tradition of the nude and its synecdoche. Every true artist remakes the human body.

The exhibition is accompanied by the work of contemporary artist Ana DMatos

Visual artist and researcher, her works are social, multidisciplinary, with critical and feminist thinking. Since 1986 she has worked in research at UCM, Edinburgh and Sheffield.

Her latest publication is her artist book Formas de paraiso. Paradisaeidae y Palimpsesto, co-published with the Granollers Museum, 2016.
