The Human Image

Location: CaixaForum Madrid

From April 28, 2021 to January 16, 2022, don't miss the opportunity to visit "The Human Image" at CaixaForum Madrid. It is a timeless exhibition with samples from different periods, geographical areas, techniques and materials, a meeting point for art from all periods around the world!

The exhibition is a journey through art and history through 140 works of extraordinary value. A walk through one of the most exciting themes: the human being and how he represents himself. The British Museum combines its works with a selection of contemporary art from the Fundación la Caixa Collection and some works on loan from other institutions such as the Museo del Prado. 

Throughout our history, human beings have left representations of themselves in every corner of the world. Many of these interpretations have a deep symbolism, while others focus on the beauty and mystery of the human being. You can find everything from a modeled skull from 11,000 years ago to the most current audiovisual works. 

"The Human Image" is an exhibition where historical and current art coexist to make a comparison of the different styles and forms with which the image of the human being has been formed through art. You can't miss it!
