"DESTINS", MUA'S ANNUAL EXHIBITION WITH ARTWORKS FROM ITS OWN COLLECTION

Translated by María Miró Maestre

Alicante, 15 October 2016

The University of Alicante Museum (MUA) will open a new annual exhibition with works from its own collection. This year, the theme of the exhibition will be destination and destiny. The exhibition can be visited until 30 September 2017 in Arcadi Blasco Hall.

Since 2005, MUA has programmed several exhibitions where some works from the museum's collection have been exposed according to a series of thematic, technical and educational criteria. In this academic year 2016/17, MUA technicians want to focus on destination, destiny and their different meanings. Destination is the goal, the finishing line of a journey. But it is also a life's journey, a series of intertwined events that determine our existence. Destiny is the future, one's fortune, a star or luck that providence holds for each of us. Destiny is the fate that acts as an unknown and unyielding force acting over humanity.

In order to shape this leitmotif, MUA has selected 18 photography, painting and engraving works that include several photographs of roads by Julius Shulman and Carlos Cánovas; airport pictures by Josh Müller and Margarita Andreu; silk screen printings about space by Eusebio Sempere; representations of paths and metaphors of life plans by Javier Romero, Alicia Lamarca, Javier Lorenzo and Cristina de Middel; disturbing visions as premonitions of misfortune by Cristina Fontsaré, Paloma Muñoz and Walter Martin; and the cruel fate that demonstrates the terrible inequalities of nowadays' globalised world, with works by Guillermo Llobet, Joan Castejón, Antoni Miró, Ángel G. Catalá, José Manuel Carratalá and Rafa Arjones.
