The Museum of El Cigarralejo de Mula invites you to enter the ancient world through the exhibition "The beat of the stones" (27/09/2018)

The Museum of Iberian Art El Cigarralejo de Mula, managed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, opens today, September 27 (7:30 pm), the temporary exhibition 'The beat of the stones', which brings together part of the photographic work and audiovisual work by Néstor Giuliodoro and Isabel Martínez.

The exhibition allows the visitor to enter the ancient world through images of works from different museums and cities of the western Mediterranean.

In addition, the artists draw a link between these pieces, some of them contemporary, and the texts of classic authors;

from politicians and writers like Cato and Cicero, to poets like Virgilio and Horacio, theater authors like Plautus or philosophers like Seneca, from whom phrases, thoughts or sentences are collected.

The tour allows the public to know, through the photographs, emblematic works among which stand out the terracotta mask of the Bardo Museum (Tunisia), the figure of the Astarte Goddess of the Cadiz Museum and the Pyrgi high relief of the Etruscan National Museum from Rome, following the magnificent bronze works such as Nemi's Medusa from the Massimo Palace in Rome or the splendid Victoria of Samothrace from the Louvre.

The exhibition also reflects the influence of these creations in later works: in the beautiful composition of 'La Danza' by Carpeaux at the Paris Opera or the excellent work of Igor Mitoraj at the gates of Santa Maria de los Mártires in Rome.

All of them without leaving aside the artists of the Region like González Beltrán, Fernando Sáenz de Elorrieta or Lidó Rico.

The General Director of Cultural Heritage, Juan Antonio Lorca, highlighted "the extensive cultural program that can be enjoyed in our municipalities thanks to spaces such as the Museum of Iberian Art El Cigarralejo de Mula, which not only exhibits archaeological material, but is also open to numerous proposals: exhibitions of contemporary artists from within and outside the Region, conferences, book presentations and numerous workshops that bring the little ones closer to culture ".

'The beat of the stones', curated by Elena Ruiz Valderas, is an exhibition with a marked didactic nuance, a tool of educational innovation for the learning of history and classical culture.

In fact, this project, which has also passed through the Roman Theater Museum in Cartagena, will have a second phase linked to educational centers, with activities aimed at students through a mobile application.
