The Oteiza Museum is a monographic exhibition space housing the personal collection of the renowned all-round sculptor and artist Jorge Oteiza (Orio 1908 - San Sebastian 2003). The collection includes 1,690 sculptures, 2,000 experimental pieces from the artist's 'Chalk Laboratory', and an extensive collection of drawings and collages. The building is situated in rural surroundings in Alzuza (Navarra), 9 kilometres from Pamplona. It contains a representative selection of work by Oteiza, one of the twentieth century's most important sculptors, who made his début on the international stage when he won the Gran Prix at the Sao Paulo Biennial in 1957 with his 'Experimental Purpose'. The large red concrete cube is intended as a metaphor of Oteiza's recreated space, and incorporates the house in which Jorge Oteiza lived from 1975.
