Art Revolutionaries in London

18 January – 10 February 2017

Mayoral, London

Mayoral presents an exhibition inspired by the Spanish Pavilion at the 1937 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne, commemorating 80 years since its inauguration. The original Pavilion marked a crucial moment during the Spanish Civil War (17 July 1936 – 1 April 1939), with the Spanish Republic using it as a platform to demonstrate to the rest of the world the atrocities that were taking place in Spain.

Similar to the original pavilion, this exhibition will feature paintings and sculptures by modernist masters including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder and Julio González.
