In eighty-two years of life he traveled 500 of existence, learning and production. Since the Middle Ages, in which he claimed to have been born by his childhood in rural Casedana roughness, Oíza travels, mixes with the Vanguards of the twentieth century and dedicates his last five decades to the creation for which he is commemorated today.
“Sáenz de Oíza. Arts and Crafts”
7 February – 26 April, 2020
ICO Foundation Museum
C/ Zorrilla, 3 Madrid
The exhibition presents, after an approach to the origins of Sáenz de Oíza and his relationship with the spirit of the time, his personal world with his architectural work, accompanied by a small group of artists from the broad spectrum that covered the Oizian gaze. The tour evokes the camaraderie among these friends, present and partners with their art or patronage in many of Oíza’s projects, enriching the sources for the free conception and development of their architecture.
Sáenz de Oíza. Arts and crafts is divided into five spaces around which to suggest, inspire or provoke emotions, with which to interpret the work of the architect through his work material, his objects and the artistic work of his creative environment.
