Live Arts

In the live arts, the Museum establishes a meeting point between its propositions in this realm and the proverbial white cube so often used in art exhibitions, but from which the live arts have been artificially expelled. By doing so it reveals that the genealogy of the live arts has been closely linked to that of the plastic avant-gardes since their very origins. The Museum's live arts programming, which includes theatre, music and sound art, is thus seen to bear a close connection to the Museum's theoretical discourse. Museo Reina Sofía also collaborates with the most important contemporary festivals in Spain, providing a venue for some of their performances. The Museum engages in continuous dialogue with them and plays a role in the formation of their discourses.

    Guy de Cointet (Paris, 1934-Los Angeles, 1983) is one of the artists that best synthesizes the new relationship between theatre and contemporary art, from the end of the 1960s onwards. His work is based on the hermeticism of language and on art's capacity to invent systems of representation between play and logic.

    Acoustic Space is a music series featuring national and international artists that show the various facets of contemporary musical creation. Through this series, Museo Reina Sofía, in collaboration with Mahou and its program Afterwork by Mahou Premium Light, enables audiences to get to know new conceptions of jazz, electronic music derivations and the radical eclecticism that characterises today's music, as well as the points of contact between the classical music tradition and the popular tradition, the boundaries of which are becoming less and less defined.
