Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) left behind an unrivaled legacy of Modernist architecture — Casa Vicens, Casa Mila, the famous unfinished basilica Sagrada Familia and many more unusual structures. His imaginative, often colorful works inspired other architects and artists, and continues to do so today.
As the title suggests, this is an unusual exhibition in which Takehiko Inoue, the author of the famous basketball manga “Slam Dunk,” attempts to interpret Gaudi’s imagination through a number of specially prepared pieces. Having toured Barcelona for his research, Inoue introduces 100 images of Gaudi’s works, combined with video and projection mapping installations, as well as the manga artist’s own original works; July 12-Sept. 7.
