Guided tour with our collaborators to the exhibition "MACBA Collection. Beneath the surface"

Fecha de inicio: 
25 October 2017

 

 
Last Wednesday, October 25, we organized an exclusive guided tour for our collaborators to the new exhibition MACBA Collection. Beneath the surface with Antonia Mª Perelló, Head of the Collection and curator of the exhibition.

MACBA Collection. Under the surface investigates the notion of surface as a privileged place for experimentation and meaning. A large number of the works on display explore postminimalist practices incorporating the critical content which they brought to the language of abstraction.

The exhibition includes works by artists such as Ignasi Aballí, Antoni Tàpies, Doris Salcedo, Pep Agut, Àngels Ribé or Pistoletto, who question painting as a space of representation and work on the surface of the artwork, adding value to the pigmented base, adding a political charge through the chromatic layer or denying its materiality.

In a second area, works that privilege the volume are included. Cellular structures that reflect on concepts such as the place, the habitat and space, prioritizing domestic or urban elements to give a new meaning in the context of the city or the museum.

The exhibition also presents works in which, under the idea of surface, memory and intimacy prevail, referring to themes such as disappearance or the passage of time.
