The Castell de Vila-seca hosts the exhibition Agustí Puig – The Poetics of the Gesture. A proposal for recognize the work of an artist who, like few others, has demonstrated the continuing relevance of painting at a time when its borders were becoming hazy, doing so in a delightful expressiveness that also resounds with the rhythms and memories of time.

In his work, Agustí Puig (Sabadell, 1957) explores the major genres found in art history, such as the nude, the landscape and the still life, giving new meaning to all of them. He has produced works in these and other genres throughout his career, which began in the 1980s, although, as is usual in any artistic career, he has also flirted with different movements, such as conceptual art, pop art and expressionism. Because to speak of Agustí Puig is to speak of an artist whose work cannot be confined to a single style or movement; his art has moved fluidly through the different avant-garde movements of the 20th century.
