Foster, car show exhibit design at the Guggenheim Bilbao

Quite unusual to see Lord Norman Foster as curator. It takes place at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, where the great architect designs the exhibition Movement. Cars. Art. event that celebrates the artistic dimension of the automobile and links it to the parallel worlds of painting, sculpture, architecture, photography and cinema, highlighting the multiple stylistic and conceptual affinities between the disciplines.

More than any other invention, the car has transformed the urban landscape and our way of life. To prove it, the exhibition brings together nearly 40 car models – each the best of its time in terms of beauty, rarity, vision – with works of art and architectural projects. The affinities between technology and creativity are multiple and unexpected. From the use of the wind tunnel, for example, were born the aerodynamic shapes of cars and those fluids of futurism, such as the sculpture of Boccioni Unique forms of continuity in space.
