Exhibition: “Public Works” of Nicanor Parra


Nicanor Parra Sandoval is a Chilean poet, mathematician, and physicist. He is regarded as the creator of anti-poetry, a genre that takes common elements of language and modifies them to an absurd extreme in order to capture the reader’s attention. He has won many awards, among them the Cervantes Prize in 2011.

The exhibition, which was curated by Ignacio Echevarría, provides a panoramic view of Parra’s work.

The show was organised by the Spanish National Library, the Aqualogy Foundation, the Catholic University of Chile and Aguas Andinas, S.A.

The exhibition catalogue, together with the invitation and leaflets were printed at the workshops of Artes Gráficas Palermo.

Exhibition period: From 30-05-2013 until 01-09-2013
