València, July 30th, 2020.- The exhibition “El Puerto de Forges” comes to Sagunto from Valenciaport, an exhibition that looks back at the economic and social changes and transformations experienced in Spain over the last 50 years through the vignettes of the renowned cartoonist Antonio Fraguas, “Forges”. The Casa Municipal del Puerto de Sagunto will host this exhibition from 4th September until 25th September, organised by the Port Authority of Valencia, in collaboration with the Sagunto Town Hall and the Quevedo Institute of the Arts of Humour of the University of Alcalá de Henares.
“El Puerto de Forges” is a tribute from Valenciaport to one of the most renowned cartoonists in our country and a man of unquestionable human quality. The works selected for this exhibition are organised into five sections: equality, the sea, the environment, social commitment and culture. The images review a trajectory of more than 50 years of commitment of the author with values necessary for the construction of a more just present and future.
The exhibition was already on display at the Clock Building in the Port of Valencia from 20th December 2019 to 2nd February, with a huge success among the public, 12,000 people, who enjoyed the exhibition and the parallel activities organised on the occasion of the exhibition. “El Puerto Forges” is an example of those signs of transformation of our environment with which the Port Authority of Valencia has wanted to review 50 years of creativity, intellectual brilliance, good humour, satire and tenderness of one of the great creators and drawers of the Spanish reality since the 70s.
