Memory, Mind, Matter: Public Art of Eduardo Chillida in Focus

Twentieth-century Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida was a major sculptor of the international “post-war art movement,” according to the Meadows Museum of Dallas website. Spanish-art.org states that “his large abstract works are considered to be his most famous works, and they are are displayed in several cities around the world.”

The Meadows Museum held a lecture and now hosts an exhibit in Chillida’s remembrance. Luis Chillida, one of Chillida’s eight children, will speak about his father’s “interest for creating public works,” according to the museum website. Speaker Luis Chillida will talk about how his father was chosen by architect I.M. Pei to create a piece for the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. This lecture was held Feb. 2, 2018.

The exhibit is curated by another son, Ignacio Chillida, who has showcased works made from “steel, concrete and paper that represent his father’s creative process,” according to the website. This exhibit will be on show until June 3, 2018. According  to the Meadows website, there will be “66 works, sculptors, drawings, gravitations, graphic works and a small selection of artists books that all represent the mature phase of Eduardo Chillida.” 

This exhibit is the first in Dallas exclusively dedicated to the sculptor. Meadows Museum is located at 5900 Bishop Blvd., Dallas, Texas, 75205. Meadows Museum is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and Sundays 1-5 p.m. Admission is $4 for students and is complimentary 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Thursdays. Parking is also free in the museum’s garage.
