Escóitasme? Una exposición del Laboratorio Seoane [Can you hear me? A Seoane Lab Exhibition] is a compilation of the experiences that happened in the Luis Seoane Foundation learning programme Laboratorio Escóitasme? The lab was an online project for kids and their families that took place during the lockdown. Over a period of ten weeks, more than twenty artists and creators interacted with the participants and gave them a a challenge, a task that had to do either with their own body of work or with Seoane’s.

The pieces that make up the collection on display have been carefully selected from the foundation archives, each of them a perfect example of the themes, techniques, formats and art practices with which Seoane built his own creative universe. The main purpose of the exhibition is to educate. It is suitable for those visitors that already know and admire his work –offering them a chance to rediscover pieces like the magnificent portrait of British actor Robert Atkins, dressed as his character of Caliban from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, that Seoane painted in 1949 during his London stay–, and for those that have only known Seoane as a painter and printmaker but are unaware of his other work, like his tapestries, book design or murals.
