MOTION. AUTOS, ART, ARCHITECTURE
The exhibition Motion. Autos, Art, Architecture covers over a century’s worth of automotive creation, exploring its multiple connections with the visual arts and architecture. The impressive selection of vehicles, works of art and architectural documents that it comprises covers the main technological achievements in the sector and melds them with their enormous social and cultural implications. Practically since the invention of the automobile, both its fabulous appearance and its association with speed, a sense of adventure, autonomy, modernity and progress seduced artists and architects to the point of quickly becoming a constant in their creations. Likewise, ideas and forms originating in the artistic avant-garde impregnated automobile design, giving rise to the important collaborations of figures from art and architecture that we all know. In addition to proposing a complete review of the nearly two hundred years of creation, the exhibition addresses the unstoppable trend towards electrification that the automobile shares with so many other productive sectors and even ventures to sketch out future scenarios for this industry. Scenarios that, according to the experts, share three major axes: the use of new digital technologies, innovation in design, and maximisation of care for the environment through renewable energies and the circular economy.
