Exhibition series in Alcoy from December until January 2019-2020 by the UA Antoni Miró Research Chair

Translated by Annabel Alcaide Carmona

Alicante, 2 December 2019

The purpose of the Antoni Miró Research Chair is the promotion and encouragement of contemporary art, primarily in the region of Valencia. Various exhibitions will be scheduled during December 2019 and January 2020 in Alcoy. They will take place at the Ovidi Montllor Centre, the Cultural Centre and the Llotja de Sant Jordi:

Oblidades per la història (Forgotten in history) 
Isabel Jover
  • From 3 December 2019 to 31 January 2020. Opening session: 3 December at 8pm
  • Ovidi Montllor Centre (Opening hours: Monday to Friday, from 6pm until 9pm)

“It has been centuries talking about art and artists without giving women the place they deserved... These 22 portraits are my contribution and tribute to all those women artists that lived and created during difficult times, hoping those conditions will not happen ever again.” Isabel Jover

Isabel Jover is a graduate in Fine Arts by the University of Barcelona, her home-town. Later, she continued further studies in London, Amsterdam and Brussels, where she stayed for 6 years. Isabel won some prices and honours, such as the Diploma and Medal of Arts and Aesthetics from the European Council. Then, she moved to Taipei for a year and a half, where she practised Chinese and Zen panting techniques.

This artist has held many individual and group exhibitions around the world throughout her career. She has also taken part in several international biennials and symposiums of contemporary art.

The exhibition shows acrylic and oil on wood paintings. The artists portrayed in the paintings are a random representation of a significant number of women artists.





El retorn de Peresejo (Peresejo's return)
  • From 4 December 2019 to 31 January 2020. Opening session: 4 December at 8pm. 
  • Alcoy Cultural Centre (Opening hours: Monday to Friday, from 11.30am to 1.30pm and from 5.30pm to 8.30pm)

José Pérez Pérez (Barcelona, 1887 - Alcoy, 1978), who is artistically known as Peresejo, symbolises one of the main representatives of the sculptors that, armed with chisel and gouge, got to break with the established models trying to impose and adapt themselves to the new times and tastes. This process was made through a new and modernising movement during the first new century decades in Spain, this not meaning a renouncing of their past but a renovation of the sculptural principles in order to restore them as they have been violated in recent decades.




Manuel  Boix, La nau de Caront (Charon's ship)
  • From 5 December 2019 to 2 February 2020. Opening session: 5 December at 8pm. 
  • Llotja de Sant Jordi (Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday, from 11.30am to 1.30pm and from 5.30pm to 8.30pm. Sundays and bank holidays from 11.30am to 1.30pm)

In 2014, Manuel Boix displayed his last exhibition “La nave. El viaje del tiempo” (The ship. The journey of time). It was held in the Acadèmia hall at the University of Valencia and it was successful in terms of visitors and reviews. Since then, he has stayed in a retreat in his native town L’Alcúdia, where he has painted and done some commissioned works. With this new exhibition at the Llotja de Sant Jordi, he brings back part of the one he presented in Valencia and complements it with his newest paintings, making it a homogeneous and appealing work.
