Created by Teatres de la Llum, this workshop seeks to explore the elements of theatricality in selected works from the collection of the Museo Reina Sofia, incorporating elements from the theater work, such as gesture, body language, scenographic composition and the expressive potential of light.

    Education

    Artist's Workshop is an initiative from the Education department conceived as a collaborative project between artists and educators with reference temporary exhibitions of the museum. The proposal for the summer of 2014 is based on Playgrounds, an exhibition focused on play and their urban and social impact. The Museum has Leonor Serrano Rivas to design an experience aimed at children aged 8 to 11 years to allow them to review the play spaces commonly used in parks and squares, and create new ones from a fun and critical point of view. During five days, the artist, children and educators, coexist three hours with the aim of developing a specific project that will eventually be visited by their parents.

    Exhibition view. Espacios para la cultura, 1986
    26 may, 1986 - 20 june, 1986

    This exhibition is the public presentation of the Edificio Sabatini restoration project, previously the Madrid Hospital building, and its conversion into the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. The remodelling process, started in 1980 under the supervision of the architect Antonio Fernández Alba (Salamanca, 1927), was prolonged until 1986 when it began to house exhibition activities, although in actual fact the history of the building dates back to the eighteenth century.

    Exhibition view. Referencias: un encuentro artístico en el tiempo, 1986
    May 26 - September 15, 1986

    This celebratory exhibition of the opening of the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía amalgamates three internationally renowned Spaniards: Eduardo Chillida, Antonio Saura and Antoni Tàpies beside three of the finest artistsom the second half of the twentieth century: Georg Baselitz, Cy Twombly and Richard Serra. The lack of historical and stylistic common ground that joins them here as well as the origins and diverse time periods of each has led the art critic, Francisco Calvo Serraller, to call the confluence an “eccentric encounter” in the exhibition notes. Having said that, is is in fact possible to consider the convergence of some of them in terms of the purpose and intent of their work. For instance, Saura clearly shares certain Expressionist references with Baselitz; the poetic and gestural nature of the material and the presence of calligraphy are also common in Tàpies and Twombly, and the preponderance of three-dimensions in Chillida's and Serra's work gives rise to analogical origins of their way of conceiving artistic creation.

    Exhibition view. Knife Ship = Il Corso del Coltello: Claes Oldenburg, Coosje van Bruggen, Frank O. Gehry, 1986
    June 18 - September 9, 1986

    The meeting of the curator Germano Celant, the architect Frank O. Gehry (Toronto, 1929) and the artists Coosje van Bruggen (Groningen, 1942 - Los Angeles, 2009) and Claes Oldenburg (Stockholm, 1929) transpired in a large-scale sculpture called Knife Ship. Il corso del Coltello (in its original Italian name) - a boat with twenty-four metre long oars and knife blades measuring nine metres when folded out as well as a corkscrew in an upright position. This piece arrived in the Venetian Arsenale on 6 September 1985 to become the backdrop for three days of diverse artistic activity and a performance that involved the dramatisation of the 'alter ego' of each one: Oldenburg as “Doctor Coltello”, a souvenir salesman with secret ambitions to become a painter, van Bruggen as “Georgia Sanda”, a modern version of Georges Sand, an individualist and adventurer, and the architect Gehry as “Franky Toronto”, a modern Piranesi.
