    The Museum

    The Museo Reina Sofía wishes to embody the concept of an expanded museum, where the experience of contemporary art is both a source of enjoyment and knowledge. Its Collection, made up of over 20,000 works, avoids representing one sole and closed interpretation of art history, opting instead for multiple histories. A museum that is a catalyst for ideas, discourses and poetics in its temporary exhibitions and intensive programme of audiovisuals and live arts, as well as a continual forum for thought, debate and education designed for all ages through courses, conferences and workshops in which visitors take centre stage.

    republic is an exhibition by Juan Luis Moraza (Vitoria, 1960), assembling a broad selection of his works and structuring them in areas that examine the museum as a system of conventions and possibilities of citizenship. Moraza has always constructed, in a mutual interaction with his artistic output, a conceptual discourse, where language and ideas also denote a place inhabited by the artist, along with the forms and characteristics of objects and situations put forward in each project.

    Virginia Torrente, curator of the exhibition Patricia Gadea. Atomic- Circus, talks about the work of a key artist to understand the cultural situation of our country during the eighties and nineties. The core of this exhibition revolves around the most productive period of Patricia Gadea's work, on his return from New York, where he formed the group Estrujenbank with the painter Juan Ugalde and the poet Dionisio Cañas. At this stage emphasizes the Circus Series (1991-1996), which summarizes the events of that decade in Spain as a clairvoyant messages of great forcefulness. Imbued with irony, like the rest of her work, to date they still have an overwhelming clarity and modernity.

    In the installation designed specifically for the Palacio de Cristal, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller appeal to our voyeuristic condition, urging us to move closer and peer into a solitary caravan. Inside it we come across a woman that appears to be sleeping along with a series of marionettes and puppets in the process of being created and the figure of an old draughtsman that appears to be pondering how to breathe life into them. The scene is replete with metaphorical connotations that prompt a reflection on themes such as the passing of time, the humbling power of the imagination (both individual and collective) and the servitudes and limitations of the creative impulse.

    A generation of artists, grouped together under the term "Arte Povera", emerged in Italy in the second half of the 20th century who, influenced by Piero Manzoni and Lucio Fontana’s artwork, and turning to the use of simple, everyday materials, realised a series of works that, without relinquishing a kind of poetic awareness of the world, were profoundly critical of industrialisation and consumer society. Of these artists, Luciano Fabro was the one with a more emphatic connection to the emergence of a new and revised approach located in the tradition. Thus he explored the creative possibilities and perspectives that, in a country like Italy, continued to open the ruins of the past.

    The artist Mitsuo Miura in Imagined memories, his intervention in Palacio de Cristal, he delves into two of the aesthetic themes that give expression to his artistic vocabulary: geometric shapes and pure colours. For this building, one of Museo Reina Sofía's two secondary sites in Parque del Retiro, his proposal begins on the pictorial level and extends to the spatial level, through circles of colours distributed on the floor and suspended from the ceiling.

    Montse Aguer, one of the exhibition's curators, takes viewers on a tour of the Salvador Dalí show, putting forward a new vision of the artist as a thinker, writer and creator of a very particular vision of the world. The exhibition comprises approximately two hundred works and is organised into eleven sections that follow something of a chronological order. The works on display date from the early years of his career up through his religious and mystical phases, his period of experimentation with scenography and also the end of his career, which was closely linked to science and technology.

    Produced on the occasion of the master lectures of 2011, this video offers a comprehensive theoretical introduction to modernism with the art historian TJ Clark. The author of Picasso and Truth: From Cubism to Guernica (2013) and Farewell to an Idea: Episodes from a History of Modernism (1999), among other seminal studies, TJ Clark discusses the ideas that shaped modernism (the process of secularization, the loss of the aura or the disenchantment with the world) and how these notions survive or have been transformed throughout history, placing special emphasis on the Museum's Collection.
