Lejos del vacío. ZERO y el arte de posguerra en Europa
The exhibition Far from the void. ZERO and postwar art in Europe offers a review of the groups of artists that overcame the post-war aesthetic and the existential atmosphere by rejecting expressionist painting, materic gestural abstraction and the informalism that dominated the art world after the Second World War. The contributions of the young artists gathered together in the exhibition were central to the “big bang” of art in the decade of the 1960s. Reflecting on ZERO and the contemporary groups that shared this spirit and formed a dense network of contacts, exhibitions, publications and events (among others, Azimut, Nul, Gruppo T, Gruppo N, Equipo 57, Nove Tendencije), the exhibition displays “congregations” of artists who operated without a unified belief or intellectual leader, but who shared the ambition of “starting from zero” for a new way of making and enjoying art., The structure of the exhibition does not have an encyclopaedic outlook, but gathers the most relevant moments of this brief history, set between 1957 and 1966, during which time there is a cartography of the old continent, beyond the big cities, in the provinces of Central Europe.
Open Creation and Its Enemies: Asger Jorn in Situation
Open Creation and Its Enemies is an in-depth survey charting the singular trajectory of the Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914–1973), a founding member of avant-garde movements such as Cobra and the Situationist International. While often acclaimed as an extraordinary painter, the exceptional range of Jorn’s practice merits the kind of broader exploration undertaken in this book.
Pinazo en el espacio público
The intention of this new exhibition on Ignacio Pinazo is to propose a new biopolitical focus on the part of his oeuvre made up of paintings and drawings that were largely produced by the artist for himself, and are therefore less academicist in their style and poetics.
