    Palacio de Velázquez, Parque del Retiro
    Exhibitions

    Idea: Painting-Force presents a set of works produced in Spain between the years 1976 and 1984, a historical period of profound social and cultural transformations. The exhibition looks at a specific situation of the Spanish artistic scene, in which the crisis of the avant-garde and of the idea of modernity becomes visible through the pictorial practice, understood as a territory for thought and the production of creative strategies, of the five artists represented: Alfonso Albacete, Miguel Ángel Campano, Ferran Garcia Sevilla, Juan Navarro Baldeweg and Manolo Quejido.

    Exhibitions

    This exhibition reviews Chris Killip's work (Douglas, Man's Island, United Kingdom, 1946), fundamental figure of the documentary photography, where, since the 70’s initiates a new route: the portrait of the working classes in full process of disappearance of the great industry that had created and supported them from beginning of the 19th century. The exhibition includes 107 pictures that gather daily scenes of the life in the North of England between 1968 and 2004. For the artist it is not a question of showing the historical experience, but to reflect the real life.

  • Image of the project Scene, by Roman Ondák at the Palacio de Cristal. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, 2013. Photographers: Joaquín Cortés/Román Lores
    September 19th, 2013 - February 23th, 2014

    Roman Ondák. Scene (19/09/2013)

    Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Retiro
    Exhibitions

    The works of Roman Ondák (Žilina, Slovakia, 1966) question the circumstances of the artwork in its relation to the conventions which determine the space and time of its presentation. Viewers are confronted with situations induced by the artist, often almost imperceptibly, which displace them from their own expectations. A discovery and knowledge of Ondák’s works gives rise to reflection and critical commentary upon what may or may not be identifiable as art, in an exercise of amplification of the recognizable world. In steering the viewer away from his or her own position, this work raises questions such as what is real about the artwork, which are the circumstances that affect recognition of the real, and what is the function of the viewer not only as interpreter but also as activator of the artistic process.

    ± I96I Founding the Expanded Arts (18/06/2013)

    Main site
    Exhibitions

    The 1960s may be the 20th century decade that wrote the code for our contemporary moment. Introducing text/information-based strategies, real-time, and the rupture of specific media boundaries into artistic practice, it defined creative criteria, models of authorship mediation, and new distribution networks that are still very much with us. The exhibition ± I96I posits a deliberately unfamiliar and anonymous temporal marker to spark debate about how and when the first new theoretical and artistic ground was broken, positing the point at which the “expanded arts” of the Sixties could first be glimpsed.

  • Azucena Vieites. From Tableau vivant serie, 2013

    Azucena Vieites. Tableau vivant (19/03/2013)

    Main site
    Exhibitions

    “Taking up the work of other people allows you a kind of contact even at a distance, a genealogy, a form of complicity and knowledge.” These are the terms in which Azucena Vieites (Hernani, 1967) speaks of a work that consists of approaching contemporary visual culture by means of strategies like citation, appropriation, inverventions centered on the idea of the original and the copy, processes of resignification, and the feminist thought and gender politics associated with subcultures. Her oeuvre might be considered a kind of DIY remix that attempts to represent a memory in relation to a present time and to an experience of passage, a memory whose intensity will gradually fade.

  • View of the exhibition hall. Mitsuo Miura. Imagined Memories
    March 14 – September 2, 2013

    Mitsuo Miura. Imagined Memories (14/03/2013)

    Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Retiro
    Exhibitions

    The intervention by Mitsuo Miura (Iwate, Japan, 1946) at the Palacio de Cristal is based on a pictorial installation oriented ultimately toward architecture and landscaping. By means of essential forms distributed around the space, with somewhat faded colors representative of a certain diffuseness, the artist proposes the creation of constructive forms that are merely suggested, and which relate to essential schematizations of experiences and images stored in his memory. The viewer can be a symbolic participant by making use of his or her own imagination and memory, here applied to an ambience linked as closely to the natural and organic as it is to the urban and cultural.
