THE UNIVERSITY OF MALAGA is hosting an art exhibition celebrating its economics faculty’s 50th anniversary.
The show, “Economists in art,” is “characterised by the multitude of techniques and disciplines used, and includes works by 10 artists with a common denominator; having graduated from Malaga’s Faculty of Economics and Business Studies,” according to Elena Galan, Councillor for Culture.
Curated by Antonio Sanchez, the show was opened by artist Antonio Suarez Chamorro and the dean of the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences of Malaga, Eugenio Luque. Hosting watercolors, oils, acrylics, collages, mixed media, photographs, pencil drawings or felt-tip pens and sculptures, the exhibition presents several themes.
Artists Blanca Alvarez, Cristina Blasco, Daniel Daaz Godoy, Carlos Barcelo, Magdalena Luque, Suarez-Chamorro, Michelo Toro, Lola Garcia Crespo, Javier Rico and Chico Repullo have contributed more than 100 works on display until December 17.
Open from 10am to 1.30pm and 5pm to 7.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, the show is in its sixth year, “showing the quantity, quality and diversity of these artists,” according to the show’s curator. Antonio Sanchez added, “it is a difficult collection to curate as there is no artistic theme beyond the fact the artists are all economists.” He explained a series of talks will accompany the exhibition.
