Comfortable Hell

The Royal Academy of Spain in Rome presents the exhibition A Comfortable Hell, by Eugenio Ampudia. Curated by Blanca de la Torre, some of the artist's most iconic works are on display, which can be seen until April 1.

Feb 2, 2018

A comfortable hell proposes a critical reflection on cultural tourism, related in a metaphorical key to global problems such as climate change or modes of consumption, especially that of our own cultural and artistic heritage. Ampudia thus highlights the importance of making art more accessible and of understanding that culture and heritage should be comfortable spaces. The exhibition questions the efficacy of the spaces assigned to culture, highlighting the importance of closing the gap with art and understanding that culture and heritage should be comfortable spaces.
