Three exhibitions at the Reina Sofia Museum

The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía opens its doors to host three temporary exhibitions: The Moroccan Trilogy, Kind Cruelty and Child of Elche.

These tributes, located in the Sabatini building, offer very diverse works of art that will appeal to all tastes. 

From March 31 to September 27, The Moroccan Trilogy will take a journey through Morocco's history: from independence in 1969, through the "Years of Lead", to the technological boom of 2000. The exhibition will bring Moroccan art closer than ever to explain the influence of these key moments in its evolution.  

The collection of collages, poems, sculptures and drawings in The Kindly Cruelty will take visitors on a journey through the works of Leon Ferrari. Until April 12, it will be possible to enjoy almost 219 pieces of art to learn about the formal, political, conceptual and poetic experimentation of the Argentinean author. 

Niño de Elche will delight the audience with Auto sacramental invisible, a sound performance based on Val del Omar. The work, only presented in 1952, will have fourteen loudspeakers to efficiently distribute the sound. Its musical and theatrical features will create an atmosphere of relaxation that can be witnessed until April 25.
