Events in Art and Archaeology

Velázquez
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Grand Palais  •  25 March - 13 July 2015
 

Born in Seville in 1599, Velázquez is one of the most important figures in the history of art, all styles and periods together. The leader of the Spanish school, official artist to King Philip IV at a time when Spain dominated the world, he was a contemporary of van Dyck, Bernini and Zuberan, although his art gave him a timelessness that is rivalled only by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Titian, Caravaggio and Rembrandt.

An exhibition produced jointly by the RMN-Grand Palais and the Musée du Louvre, in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

Carlos Espinosa: Mist Trap

Carlos Espinosa
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Le Palais de Tokyo  •  18 February - 17 May 2015
 
 

Carlos Espinosa (b. 1924, lives and works in Antofagasta, Chile) is the inventor of atrapanieblas, or “mist traps,” disseminated by the physicist throughout the Atacama Desert in Chile where his invention became a model in the field before spreading to the most arid regions in the world.

Able to capture humidity, these traps can channel water in order to direct it towards areas where it doesn’t flow. These inventions thus help the development of organic life in places where the mineral world was predominant. Developed in the 1960s after a terrible year of drought, Carlos Espinosa’s research consisted in “finding lasting cohabitation solutions for man and his environment while the whole of humanity was already embarking on the conquest of space.”

Thanks to his mist catchers, Espinosa succeeded in meeting an almost Promethean challenge: capturing an invisible material omnipresent and fleeting and offering it to men. The invention was patented in 1963 and its system offered for free use to UNESCO.
