The Centre for Latin American studies Mario Benedetti (CEMAB), in partnership with the Centro de Arte Moderno of Madrid and the Museum of the University of Alicante (MUA), have organized the exhibition Julio Cortázar. Un recorrido.

The exhibition, which will be open to the public until 9 November, is part of the commemorative activities organized by CEMAB on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the novel Hopscotch, a celebration that started in March 2013 and will remain with a broad program until the end of the year.

The exhibition Julio Cortázar. Un recorrido, is intended to help us to get to know the literary career of this essential writer from 20th century literature, and illuminate diverse aspects of his personality.

According to Eva Valero, director of CEMAB, the exhibition presents diverse sections or areas intended to illustrate different aspects. Within these sections, books have an essential role. In addition, first editions and handwritten signed books by Julio Cortázar are exhibited. The display includes hemerographic material, plus a large number of photographic portraits, documental photographs, original illustrations from some of his books, cd’s, correspondence, personal objects and other objects.

The material exhibited is part of the collection of the Museo del Escritor and the Centro de Arte Moderno of Madrid. The Centre is a private institution and within it, the Museo del Escritor consists of a collection of more than 4000 objects and documents that have belonged to Spanish and Latin American writers. These are exhibited in a permanent and temporal way with the purpose of contributing to preserving their memory and of bringing people closer to the knowledge of the personality of these authors.
