Chillida Leku presents Maeght Universe exhibition

Visit Maeght Universe at Chillida Leku, an exhibition offering a dialogue between the works of Eduardo Chillida and some of the artists with which famed dealer Aimé Maeght and his wife Marguerite worked. 

Organised in conjunction with the Fondation Marguerite et Aimé Maeght and the Fundación Eduardo Chillida - Pilar Belzunce, the exhibition is one of the first milestones in the programme to mark the 100th anniversary of Eduardo Chillida’s birth.

With a total of 17 pieces, the 11 artists on display played a pivotal role in the history of 20th-century sculpture, helping to better understand Chillida’s work and to place it in its art historical context.
The exhibition begins outside the Zabalaga farmhouse with Morning cobweb by Alexander Calder (1969). Visitors can experience the space and lightness of this 7-tonne, monumental sculpture, which will be displayed alongside the work of Jean Arp and other sculptures by Eduardo Chillida.

Inside the farmhouse, the exhibition continues with pieces by Chillida, Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Julio González, Barbara Hepworth, the only female artist in the show, Pablo Palazuelo and Georges Braque. The final part of the exhibition features pieces related to the use of everyday objects and the magic of Antoni Tàpies, and the painted poetry of Marc Chagall.
