The Garden of Earthly Delights


The Garden of Earthly Delights, through the artworks of Colección SOLOshown at Matadero Madrid from October 2021 until February 2022 and visited by more than 90,000 visitors, is an invitation to revisit and reconnect form de present-day with Hieronymus Bosch’s masterpiece.

The different approaches, evocative references and visionary reinterpretations in these contemporary works make for an exhibition experience which opens up for visitors the narrative wealth of the original triptych, its countless layers of interpretation, symbolic potential and ability to articulate a social portrayal of the present.
