Commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Dionís Bennàssar’s death
2017 has been declared ‘Dionís Bennàssar year’ in Pollensa because it is during this year that we are commemorating 50th anniversary of the death of the outstanding local artist. Dionís Bennàssar and his work will be the theme around which different activities will be carried out throughout the year in Pollença.
Among the activities that will take place during this year, you’ll find exhibitions of unpublished work of the Pollençan artist that will take place both in Pollença, as in Palma. In Pollensa the exhibition is at the Convent of Santo Domingo in Pollença. On the other hand, the inauguration of the exhibition of the unpublished works of Bennàssar in Palma will be on May 5 in La Misericòrdia.
In addition to the exhibitions various conferences will take place on top of thematic exhibitions in the Club Pollença and in the Gallery Dionís Bennàssar itself. The incalculable value of his work and recognition obtained by the artist and the island thanks to it will also be celebrated by offering painting classes, video mappings and by projecting various films also in Club de Pollença and the Dionís Bennàssar Gallery.
It should be noted that in his numerous exhibitions Dionis Bennàssar demonstrated his great mastery. He was one of our best landscapers, marked a new route in the language of painting, and as a cartoonist and caricaturist he showed a different side of himself and his perception of reality and everything that surrounded him.
