The exhibition was inaugurated on the night of June 2nd, in an ambiance full of friends, excellent music and lovers of good art. The masterly curatorial work of Cristina Vives, excelled on this occasion thanks to a curatorial idea that was brought to reality, thanks to the efforts of the staff of the Museum and its Director James Harritas: many of the large pieces obtained a three-dimensionality when were placed in individual walls, specially built for each piece. This fabulous assembling gave the works a very positive visual impact, thus obtaining the pieces a three-dimensional monumentality.
In additon, this exhibition will count with a book/catalogue about the exhibition and life and work of Belkis Ayón, titled Behind the veil of a myth. Produced by the Stattion Museum and the Belkis Ayón Estate, with texts by Cristina Vives and design by Laura Llópiz.
