Exhibition: “Calsina, we both are brothers!”

This title is a sentence told by Joan Oliver (Pere Quart) who dedicated it to his artist friend, Calsina. With this exhibition we would like to honor those writers who felt attracted to such an imaginative work in which is expressed by images things what seems that only can be expressed by words.

As Ramon Calsina Foundation we have made five exhibitions in five years using the pictures from the foundation, entities, official organizations and particular collectors in El Vendrell, Menorca, Santa Perpètua de la Mogoda, Sant Cugat del Vallès and L’Espluga del Francolí and we have done all this with our own economic resources. But we are outside from the sales channels and we have been redressing imbalances of the budgets with our own economic support.

Now we are in a very ambitious project and we are going through very difficult times, both economically and culturally speaking that why we need some help to complete the contribution made by the foundation.

So that is why we have thought in all of you and we have created this Verkami.


We take this opportunity to show you a very powerful reason. We would like to pay homage to essential characters of our culture, not just painters but also other artist from the literature world, all of which felt attracted to Ramon Calsina’s art.

Calsina established strong complicity and friendship bonds with them. All of these artist felt attracted to his brimming over imagination and his way to express by images what only seems that can be expressed by words.

Avel•lí Artís Gener (Tísner), Pere Calders, Joan Oliver (Pere Quart), Xavier Benguerel, Gerard Vergés, Salvador Espriu, Joan Triadú, Jordi Sarsanedas are some of the ones who expressed their affinity, admiration and friendship for his artwork and his attitude as an artist.

We believe that this is also a good moment to make a heartfelt appreciation to all of those who did so much for the culture in such a hard time and had made a solid base in our culture and to whom we owe so much as a nation.

If you support us we would be able to make real the exhibition for this autumn in an excellent place called Cultural Centre of Terrassa, which have a fantastic exhibition rooms not only for the dimension and the quality but also for its visibility.


The budget for this project it is bigger than the amount we have suggested.

If we reach the figure, we will earmark the money for printing the catalog. It is a book of sixty pages in color, 600 copies, which contain an explanation about the sense of the exhibition and it is shown about sixty works.

In case that the required amount will be reached or overtaked the remaining money would used to defray the cost of the video and sound from the artist, the transport and the restoration of the work, as well as the own expenses that the crowdfounding project generates.


7th October 2014: the end of crowdfunding.
October 2014: print the catalogs and prepare the exhibition. We also going to get in contact/touch with all of you to give them the reward and send you the invitation.
30th October 2014: The grand inauguration.
From the 1st November 2014 to 5th December 2014: Exhibition in course.


We have planned to give the rewards the day of the inauguration, as we said 30th October 2014, to which we hope you can attend and which would be a big party.

If you are not able to come that day, let us know it, and we will get in touch with you to give you your rewards.

    Hola Ferran, un cop acabat el Verkami tots els mecenes rebreu un mail confirmant que la campanya s’ha tancat amb èxit.
    Serà llavors quan se us consultarà quina és la reproducció que voleu de les 6 que hi ha disponibles.
    El mateix es farà per a les recompenses de les carcasses dels smartphone.

#06 / Moltes gràcies / Muchas gracias

Queden pocs minuts per a que acabi el projecte de crowdfunding de verkami amb el que ens vem liar la manta al cap a finals d'agost.

Han estat 40 dies intensos en els que no hem parat de buscar nous mecenes per a l'exposició que estem preparant al Centre Cultural de Terrassa i que comença el proper 30 d'octubre. Aquests han estat uns dies de molt brogit però les alegries compensen clarament els moments de crisi quan vèiem que el marcador no avançava i no sabíem què més fer.

Ens ha alegrat retrobar-nos amb vells (i bells) amics que heu fet la vostra aportació i ens heu ajudat a difondre la iniciativa, i ens ha fet molta il•lusió conèixer-ne de nous que ara ja formeu part de les nostres vides personals i de la Fundació Ramon Calsina.

Avui acaba el nostre verkami sobre el món calsinià i els escriptors, i avui es commemora la mort d'Edgar Allan Poe ocorreguda l'any 1849.

#05 / Aniversari naixement Pere Calders

El 29 de setembre de 1912, demà farà 102 anys, naixia Pere Calders i Rossinyol, escriptor i dibuixant conegut principalment per la seva faceta de contista. Calders fou alumne de Calsina i en un article al diari Avui l'any 1992 explicava:

"En 1931, jo era deixeble de l'Escola Superior de Belles Arts de Barcelona, i en Calsina ja n'havia esdevingut professor de l'assignatura de colorit, composició i procediments pictòrics. Jo tenia aleshores dinou anys i a en Calsina li faltava poc per fer-ne trenta, ja havia complert el servei militar i començava a tenir prestigi. En aquell moment, l'escletxa generacional entre ell i jo era notable, però encara hi havia més que això: ell ja tenia un renom i jo amb prou feines comptava amb un nom."
Anys després Calsina realitzaria alguns dibuixos per a contes de Calders com l'Arbre Domèstic o Quieta Nit.

En el mateix article Calders deia read more

#04 / Ramon Calsina i Joan OIiver

“Recordo una tarda que vaig anar a recollir Joan Oliver a casa seva, pocs anys abans del seu traspàs, per portar-lo a l’estudi del pare. Allí, mirant quadres, remenant carpetes de dibuixos i sentint-los parlar, van transcórrer unes hores que no oblidaré mai.

Vaig ser testimoni d’una comunicació profunda entre dos homes germans, com deia en Joan Oliver. Qui millor que ell, esperit selecte, per entendre l’obra del pare!”

Fragment del llibre Calsina, escrit per Enric Jardí i Ramon Calsina Garcés

#03 / Una mica de literatura / Un poco de literatura

Donat que l’exposició que preparem gira entorn de Ramon Calsina i els escriptors hem volgut que la presència d’aquests fos present ja des del primer moment. És per això que ens hem permès la llicència de jugar amb els noms d’alguns llibres per tal de marcar les seccions d’aquest Verkami.

Algunes preguntes, algunes respostes / Jordi Sarsanedas (1956). A partir d’aquest títol us responem el dubte de què és la Fundació Ramon Calsina.

Viure i veure / Avel•lí Artís-Gener (Tísner). Títol genèric de les seves Memòries publicades en quatre volums entre el 1989 i el 1996. Aquest nom ens permet endinsar-nos en el projecte que volem tirar endavant, la relació viscuda entre el món literari i l’art de Calsina.

Tot s’aprofita / Pere Calders (1981). Aquest llibre, que inclou diverses narracions d’humor, ens permet explicar-vos a què… read more

#02 / Iniciamos el proyecto

Las últimas semanas han sido muy intensas desde que surgió la idea de promover este proyecto a través de Verkami. Estos días hemos estado valorando pros y contras, hemos preparado los textos, hemos buscado imágenes, grabado el video, hemos estado detallando las recompensas para que fueran atractivas para los mecenas… y ciertamente estamos muy satisfechos de cómo nos ha quedado la presentación.

Hace justo 24 horas que hemos publicado el proyecto y empieza la tarea más dura, pero también la más estimulante, la de dar a conocer la propuesta que presentamos al mismo tiempo que difundimos la obra de Ramon Calsina, un artista que como dijo Joan Oliver Pere Quart fue honesto y dominó el oficio.

Desde la Fundación Ramon Calsina queremos seguir con esta manera de entender la vida i de entender el Arte, y con este proyecto os invitamos a que seáis partícipes.

#01 / Iniciem el projecte

Les darreres setmanes han estat molt intenses des que va sorgir la idea de promoure aquest projecte a través de Verkami. En els darrers dies hem estat valorant pros i contres, hem preparat els textos, hem buscat imatges, enregistrat el vídeo, definit les recompenses que fossin prou atractives per als mecenes... i el cert és que estem molt satisfets de com ens ha quedat la presentació.

Ara, tot just fa 24 hores que hem publicat el projecte i comença la tasca més dura, però també la més engrescadora, la de donar a conèixer la proposta que presentem al mateix temps que fem difusió de l’obra de Calsina, un artista que com va dir Joan Oliver Pere Quart va ser honest i va dominar l’ofici.

Des de la Fundació Ramon Calsina volem seguir aquesta manera d’entendre la vida i d’entendre l’Art, i amb aquest projecte us convidem a que en sigueu partícips.
