MACBA devotes an exhibition to uncoventional Italian artist Carol Rama whose work is stylised by eroticism and sexual aggression, with particular reference to female sexuality.
Born in Turin in 1918, Rama's career stretches from 1936 to 2006, from her watercolours of the 1930s, her abstraction, informalism and spatialism between the 1950s and 1970s, until her return to the free use of form in later life.
The self-taught artist's stark use of intense colour and carnal subject matter have seen her unique style labelled as "sensurrealism".
She is regarded as having led the way for other dynamic and controversial artists such as Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith.
Mon-Fri 11.00-19.30, Sat 10.00-20.00, Sun 10.00-15.00. Tues closed.
