“The Cathedral of Malaga. An unfinished symphony”
October 25, 2018 – February 28, 2019
The Cathedral of Málaga
Calle Molina Lario, 9, Málaga
The book delves into the history of the basilica emphasizing those aspects that distinguish the major temple of the diocese, and whose texts are illustrated with historical and contemporary drawings, and with photographs taken by photographer Fernando Alda.
In the same way the audiovisual piece of the exhibition supposes a journey through time in the constructive process of the temple. A trip that begins in 1528 with that Renaissance cathedral that rose like an impregnable fortress and that keeps in its interior and like a treasure, a sophisticated golden palace.
A trip that stops in 1588 when the works are paralyzed to regain momentum again in 1721 with the Baroque cathedral, where the interior architecture of the temple emerges to the exterior turning the temple into a palace. A citadel full of towers whose completion was frustrated again in 1782.
As if it were a musical composition, in the presented audiovisual piece there are times of greater activity with times of silence, which anticipate the start-up of the works once again. A trip that has not yet concluded because the cathedral of Malaga is a building under construction. While waiting for its completion, the cathedral of Malaga is an unfinished symphony. Commissioners of the exhibition and authors of the book: Juan Manuel Sánchez La Chica and Adolfo de la Torre Prieto.
