ARTIUM, Basque Centre-Museum of Contemporary Art presents the exhibition The Gamarra family goes to the cinema. Films in Vitoria in the forties and fifties, a golden era for showing films, in which Vitoria, with a population of scarcely 50,000 inhabitants, had seven large cinemas. Based on the bequest made by the family of Jesús Gamarra to ARTIUM of one thousand programmes of the type handed out to cinemagoers at that time, the exhibition takes a sentimental and artistic look at some of the images engraved in the memory of spectators during the period of dictatorship and autocracy in which the seventh art represented one of the few opportunities to escape from reality and to enter other imaginable worlds. Publicity boards, murals, posters, programmes, photographs of the stars of the era and a small selection of works from the ARTIUM Collection form an exhibition that dedicates a chapter to the artists who created those images and especially to José Luis González de Viñaspre, the only publicity board illustrator in Vitoria-Gasteiz. The Gamarra family goes to the cinema is a production of ARTIUM with the sponsorship of the newspaper El Correo.

All works of art can have many different meanings. All works of art are open to a variety of enlightening interpretations. This is one of the reasons that justifies the raison d'être of a collection and provides a motive for making more than one visit to the Centre-Museum. "Catharsis. Rituals of purification" is only one of its possibilities. Provide your own. There will be others in the future.
