Ismael Smith was a versatile artist who had a public accepted life and other more controversial, as many other people throughout history. In / Visible is a visual map: halfway between artistic and curatorial work, brings together some of the key works of Smith showing the wide spectrum covering his life and work.
Why Ismael Smith? On No es que s’hi estigui més bé al llit quan plou, es que a fora s’hi està pitjor we focused on breaking down the life, work and mysteries of this accursed artist of the last century, the main laboratory of the archive-lab created by El Palomar, thanks to Sala d’Art Jove and in collaboration with Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Josep Casamartina i Parassols, historian, critic and curator specialist in art and clothing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, shared the evening with us as an expert on Ismael Smith to talk about his research.
