Vampires. The evolution of the myth

From 26 February to 13 June 2021

This exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to dive into the world of vampires and learn about the different aspects of the figure of the vampire, based on different artistic practices in a truly enthralling way. Recommended for visitors over the age of 12.

The exhibition brings together a selection from the reams and reams of fantasy films that the myth has fostered, from avant-garde projects to box office hits. It explains the tensions between cinema and this myth with an eye to the metamorphoses of the vampire, which are tightly linked with shifts that took place in the world of cinema. Alongside displays of films and literary pieces, this thematic exhibition will also show a range of other examples of vampires in other artistic disciplines, such as Max Ernst’s surrealist collages, some prints from Goya’s ‘Los Caprichos’, ominous paintings by contemporary artist Wes Lang or the iconic image of Dracula played by Bela Lugosi, used by Andy Warhol in his lithograph entitled The Kiss. The dialogue between the films and the works will lay the groundwork for this interdisciplinary exhibition, which uses cinema as the main narrative focal point. From their first appearance in cinema up until 21st-century television, vampires have kept on emerging from the shadows and challenging their admirers with questions regarding their identity. Neither dead or alive and fundamentally marginal, the myth of the vampire asks questions about the nature of their being and, as such, it makes artists ask such questions of themselves.
