THE 'ENRIQUE 1972-2005' EXHIBITION IN THE AIFOS HALL

On January 9, at 13.30 h, the UA Aifos Hall opens the Enrique 1972-2005 exhibition, which gathers the famous artist’s cartoons spreading over a thirty-three-year period. The exhibition is part of the IV Cultural Cycle of the Aifos Hall, which also includes En cap cap cap – a play in the tradition of the theatre of the absurd, staged by the UA University Theatre (Teatre Universitari de la UA) that will be performed on January 22 in the UA Auditorium (Paraninfo).

According to the artist, ‘the exhibition contains two cartoons per year, the majority of which have been published in the newspaper Información.’ This is an itinerant exhibition sponsored by CAM which began in 2005 and which has travelled across numerous places in Spain such as Catalonia, Madrid, the Balearic Islands, Murcia, etc. Enrique assures that ‘those coming to the exhibition will have a good time and will be able to see a big number of my works, both colour and black and white.’

The exhibition reaches its close at the UA and, in this respect, the artist explains ‘I want to close this exhibition here, so that I might begin and end at home, closing the circle, as it were, since both the UA and Información - where this exhibition opened, are my home.’ Enrique has had his cartoons published by newspapers such as Marca and La hoja del lunes as well as by various publications belonging to CAM. At present he is also working with Panorama Azul, which belongs to Ecisa and has numerous other sporadic contributions. He has received various international prizes, among which the first prize at the IVV International Olympiad of Humour in Valencia (1973) and the prize at the VII Mostra Internazionale del Disegno Humorístico Sportivo in Ancona (1983). He is now president of FECO- Spain.

The exhibition is open until February 18.
