An initiative of #elMuseoenCasa, a MEAM content program through our social networks to maintain the connection with the public during the time that the museum will be closed.
The MEAM has prepared an online exhibition in which we have compiled a set of paintings by international figurative artists and, which in most cases, we have been able to see at the MEAM, either in monographic exhibitions, or in painting and sculpture, such as Figurativas, convened biannually by the Private Foundation of Arts and Artists, or ModPortrait, convened annually by the Artelibre Gallery in Zaragoza.
It is a series of works that describe everyday scenes, our daily activities, the empty streets, the windows through which our desires and longings sneak in, the balconies to which we go out to applaud our heroes, the corners that we live, in those who dream, in those who feel less alone, in those who reflect, observe and feel. Works that describe that frustrated attempt to fill a void, to see them and realize it, or on the contrary, to flee and abstract from the reality that surrounds us and wait anxiously for this to soon end in order to return to that 'normality', to the bubble in which we have resigned ourselves to live and in which we feel safe because perhaps it guarantees us that every morning will be a new day.
With these works, we intend that virtual visitors make their own account of each work and that they feel identified with the characters represented in each of them. We encourage you to send us your ideas, reflections or poems inspired by one of the works that you will see below. We will choose the ones that have reached us the most and we will share it on our social networks.
