  • Exhibition view. Carl André, 1988
    8 february, 1988 - 29 april, 1988

    Carl Andre (Quincy, USA, 1935) is one of the key figures of Minimal Art, developed at the beginning of the Sixties in the USA. The artist has fashioned his own highly recognisable style, taking the literal nature of the materials to the extreme in the development of his sculptures as his work pays heed to the fundamental principles of the movement.

  • Exhibition view. Minimal Art from the Panza Collection, 1988
    24 march, 1988 - 31 december, 1988

    During the first half of the Seventies, a series of American artists develop a set of aesthetic approaches that aim to free art from its function of representation - associated with figurative tradition - as well as its ideological content. Thus, with the use of related volumes, materials and mediums that identify a work of art solely with itself, Minimalism is born.

  • Exhibition view. A Century of Modern Sculpture. The Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, 1988
    6 april, 1988 - 5 june, 1988

    Contemporary sculpture is characterised by a variety of unprecedented styles, themes and mediums. The Nasher Collection is one of the most representative and complete private sculpture collections in the twentieth century that faithfully reflects this diversity. The pieces, amassed by Raymond Nasher since the Sixties, are spread out in Dallas between his house and NorthPark, an office complex and shopping centre created by Nasher himself.

  • Robert Mangold. Irregular green area with a drawn ellipse, 1985-86. Painting. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    10 july, 2001 - 8 october, 2001

    Minimalismos was the title chosen by Anatxu Zabalbeascoa and Javier Rodríguez Marcos for a small book that was published in the year 2000 by the publishing company Gustavo Gili, Barcelona. In it, his vision of the popularisation of the term "minimalism" is told as well as the story of his expansion beyond the visual arts into other areas of expression such as architecture, music and fashion. On this occasion, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía uses them as commissioners for this exhibition that traces the evolution of that historical movement started in the Sixties and which has grown to become one of the most recognisable aesthetic categories today.

  • Anish Kapoor. Madonna, 1989-1990. Sculpture. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    15 june, 2004 - 6 september, 2004

    Far from the conventional chronological order, the works in the exhibition Monocromos: de Malevich al presente are installed for this installation in series corresponding to colour environment. The dual-origin of monochrome art (the mystical and the specific) in its evolution during the twentieth century illustrates the division between the spiritual quest of a transcendental experience and the desire to emphasise the physical presence of the object as a concrete reality and not an illusion. The two opposite meanings -the specific object and mystical icon- blend into the first monochrome paintings of Kasimir Malevich, created on the eve of the Russian revolution.

  • Vista de sala de la exposición. The Pamplona Encounters 1972: The End of the Party for Experimental Art, 2009
    October 28, 2009 - February 22, 2010

    At the beginning of the summer of 1972, the “Pamplona Encounters” were held - the most extensive and significant international avant-garde art festival held in Spain. Imbued with the idea of diffusing art into life, these were ephemeral encounters, set up as an opportunity to subvert the order established at the end of the dictatorship in Spain.

  • Exhibition view. Una conferencia comisariada. Sobre el futuro de la fuerza colectiva dentro del archivo, 2010
    May 20 - August 30, 2010

    Una conferencia comisariada

    Sobre el futuro de la fuerza colectiva dentro del archivo

    In their efforts to distance themselves from a linear narrative of modernity, The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía addresses the Museum's vision as not merely a container of objects, but as an entity capable of producing new discourses for their Collection and generating new knowledge. For this reason through Two Different Readings of the Collection, two exhibitions have opened at the same time, about the meaning of collecting and relating the Museum's Collection from two different points of view. Artists Rosa Barba and Juan Luis Moraza, have made an exhaustive study on the Museum's collection to then choose a selection of works which can offer the public two alternative visions and proposals on the Collection.
