Museography news of the inauguration of the 2nd itinerant venue of the unique exhibition “Ídolos: Miradas Milenarias” at the Regional Archaeological Museum of Madrid (MAR), in which we have participated with the design of museography and exhibition architecture of the same.

We quote the text of the MARQ news:

The MARQ and the MAR have joined forces to bring together 226 unique pieces from Spanish and Portuguese museums in a proposal that brings the public closer to the existence and meaning of idols, understood as genuine and schematic representations of the human body and face of diverse nature and form that are part of the symbolism of recent prehistory in the Iberian Peninsula.

‘Idols’ can be visited until January 10, 2021 in the temporary exhibition hall of the MAR , which occupies the upper gallery of the cloister of the building located in Alcalá de Henares. The exhibition is curated by Primitiva Bueno, Professor of Prehistory at the University of Alcalá de Henares, and Jorge A. Soler, Director of Exhibitions and Curator of Prehistory at MARQ. The opening ceremony held this morning was also attended by the director of MAR, Enrique Baquedano, the director of MARQ, Manuel Olcina, and the managing director of the MARQ Foundation, José Alberto Cortés.

The exhibition design and architecture has been directed by architect Ángel Rocamora and the graphic design by Luis Sanz. The project is complemented by audiovisual resources, directed by Gustavo Vílchez, which present both the exhibition and the research process of the idols and explain their significance.
