Exhibition "Les Haras Camp, 1939. Fonteserè and Clavé at the Martí Vives light"

Exhibition from March 17 to September 2, 2018.

Opening: Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.


In this exhibition, it is proposed to highlight the rich network of relationships in which, despite the difficult situation they had to face, the young artists Carles Fontserè and Antoni Clavé moved in the first phase of their exile. Perpignan, during the first months of 1939 became a city in a state of emergency in which the gestures of solidarity were fundamental for the fate of the refugees.

The Roussillon artist Martí Vives will play a key role in the departure of catalans of the French concentration camps, as was the case of Fontserè and Antoni Clavé. To Carles Fontserè, as well as to Antoni Clavé, that precarious and even dangerous stage will allow them, paradoxically, to make their first exhibitions as artists. Art will become a vital survival strategy.

The exhibition will be able to see original works and diverse documentation of the time.

Exposure to the care of Eric Forcada.


Exhibition held in the framework of the centenary Carles Fontserè, in collaboration with the Department of Culture
