Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Renia Sofía MNCARS acquires a work by Paloma Polo for the permanent collection.
Sabrina Amrani is pleased to announce the acquisition of Paloma Polo’s artwork El Barro de la Revolución for the permanent collection of Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Renia Sofía MNCARS (Spain).
What social conditions give rise to political change? This question propelled Polo's immersion in the revolutionary movement in the Philippines. The work, coexistence, and filmic inquiry she undertook in a guerrilla front were the culmination of three years of research and reflection engaged in the political struggles of this country.
