The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Buenos Aires and later the Pinacoteca del Estado de Sao Paulo in Brazil host the exhibition: De Picasso a Barceló: la colección del Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, siglo XX, which, as its title indicates, includes the beginning and end of twentieth century Spanish art with a period marked by two multi-faceted artists. Chronologically organised, the exhibition invites its Argentine and Brazilian public to participate in the wealth of the last hundred years of art in Spain.
Gathered under the title Picasso a Tàpies. Claves del arte español del siglo XX en las colecciones del MNCARS, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía presents in this exhibition a selection of works from its own collection. It proposes a broad view of the visual arts from 1900, when Pablo Picasso moved to Paris, and 1960, when the generation of Antoni Tàpies achieves international success.
The exhibition Locus Solus. Impressions de Raymond Roussel is dedicated to the body of work by the French novelist and poet and its influence on modern and contemporary art. Roussel (1877-1933) was the author of a literary opus made up of rich worlds, filled with spectacle, masks and phantasmagoria and built around the mechanisms and double entendres found in language. In its consideration of Roussel, Locus Solus is also taking a furtive glance at the history of 20th century art.
All of the poetic suggestions and all of the plastic possibilities
Together, Museo Reina Sofía and the Centre Georges Pompidou have organised a large exhibition devoted to Salvador Dalí. The exhibition is conceived as a contribution to the reappraisal of Dalí as a thinker, a writer and the creator of a very particular vision of the world.
