Crhomo Sapiens18th December 2010 > 13th March 2011 This anthological retrospective explored the artistic world of Pablo Echaurren, starting from contemporary works devoted to his city, Rome, and inspired by Roman symbols. Echaurren debuted in the nineteen sixties using several expressive languages, from painting to comic strips, ceramic sculptures to collage and fabric marquetry to mosaics, all of which were associated with his intense activity as writer, with ample freedom to experiment, oblivious to the idea of an assumed hierarchy of genres.
Closely tied to surrealism, Pablo succumbed the charm of Futurism as demonstrated by his enviable collection of books and posters. A selection of famous graphics and illustrations were also displayed. One section was devoted to music, another great passion of Echaurren who was especially fond of Ramone’s bass.
