Arte y cine. 120 años de intercambios ( Art an cinema. 120 years of exchanges), the exposition organised by La Caixa in collaboration with Cinémathèque française takes us for a journey through the history of cinema seen through the lens of art. With sections divided by decades, the exhibition presents a detailed analisys on how art has influenced the cinematography and how cinema has became an art by itself. Since the very first attempts to portrait the essence of movement with photography and brothers´Lumiere works till the modern recordings of water paintings, we receive the full view on the history of dialogue in between filmmakers and artists.
As I´ve been recently interested in various approaches to the theme of dream, what especially drew my attention was the whole section dedicated for it including the dream sequence directed by Dali for Hitchcock´s 1945 Spellbound and oneiric Bunuel´s visions. Fans of Nouvelle Vague and vintage posters shouldn´t be dissapointed as well.
TIP: Descriptions only in Spanish. My level is absolutely low, though I still recommend the visit as the fragments of movies and paintings tell their own story anyway.
