Memory, Mind, Matter: The Public Art of Eduardo Chillida in Focus

Luis Chillida, director, Fundación Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce
Luis Chillida will offer a more personal introduction to the life and work of his late father, the celebrated Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida (1924–2002), in the context of the exhibition Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida. Th­e exhibition, curated by the speaker’s brother Ignacio Chillida, offers a rare glimpse into the sculptor’s creative process through the display of smaller works in various media including steel, concrete and paper. Th­e talk will also focus on Chillida’s interest in creating works for public spaces, in particular the commission of De música, Dallas XV, for which the sculptor was chosen by architect I. M. Pei to create a site-specific work for the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
