  • Exhibition view. Pop Art, 1992
    23 june, 1992 - 14 september, 1992

    Pop Art, understood as a manifestation at an international level which bursts into existence in the late fifties has no manifesto and is heterogeneous in technique, ideas and the means it employs; it constitutes the axis that is articulated by the exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. This is a movement that is primarily urban - it has a contemporary development in the more important cities involved in the art scene in the second half of the twentieth century: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Dusseldorf, Rome and Milan - it establishes a special link with mass culture, which it seeks to reflect. In this mass culture it finds its themes, its vocabulary, its icons, its artistic resources and even its means of diffusion, converting the information overload and visual stimuli that assault the passerby, the spectator and the consumer in their daily lives, into the engines of their work. Pop comes as a shock to traditional art in its broadest sense (media, institutions, education, notion of the artist, authorship and even unique work) and also to what it had immediately proceeded (abstract expressionism and informal art). Screen printing, collage or the use of pre-existing images imply a criticism of the artist’s subjectivity, avoiding recognition (leaving a mark) of their involvement in the work of art. Also, in their reaction against good taste and high culture, there are many times when kitsch is recovered as the peak in aesthetics.

  • Martín Chirino. Mi patria es una roca I. El viento (70), 1986-1987. Sculpture. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    10 february, 1994 - 31 march, 1994

    This exhibition, the third project that aims to exhibit the Collection at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía under artists and themes, highlights the fact that one of the defining features of Spanish artistic production during the Eighties and Nineties is plurality. In addition, the artists’ works and careers that are represented reveal the gradual integration and participation of them into international artistic and aesthetic debates. The exhibition is restricted to two areas of domestic production: painting and sculpture, as well as considering the shift from this to installation art.

  • Pablo Picasso. Mujer en el Jardín, 1929-30. Sculpture. Museo Nacional Centro de arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    21 october, 1997 - 11 january, 1998

    The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is collaborating with the Mexican Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes -as they did in 1996 for the ¿Buñuel! The Eye of the Century exhibition- to present at the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City a selection of paintings, sculptures and drawings by the major Spanish artists of the twentieth century. This exhibition is a reflection of Spanish avant-garde key historical figures as well as the most celebrated artists of the second half of the twentieth century. Also present in the exhibition are the creations of artists who have achieved great relevance in the current scene. In this way, the Mexican public is invited to construct a global vision of the Spanish art scene over the last hundred years through this exhibition divided into three chapters.

  • Eduardo Arroyo. Los cuatro dictadores (The Four Dictators), 1963. Painting. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    10 february, 1998 - 7 april, 1998

    The personal and artistic career of Eduardo Arroyo (Madrid, 1937) is very representative of his generation. Born during the Civil War, he is educated in a post-war Madrid, and lives in exile in France during the Franco dictatorship until he decides to return to Spain in 1976 because of the amnesty offered by the establishment of democratic freedoms. Arroyo represents the continuity of an identity created by avant-garde artists from the Thirties, which is also decisively contributed to by key Spanish artists such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. For Arroyo, it is an identity marked by the behaviour patterns of what is "Spanish", which influences his creative career.

    La Spagna dipinge il Novecento (Spain Paints the 20th Century) is the title chosen for this exhibition, which contemplates the existence of an artistic panorama that contributes significantly to Art History, despite certain historical vicissitudes. It comprises sixty works by forty-two artists from the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection and gives an overview, via key works, of the events in 20th century art in Spain. Furthermore, the exhibit unfolds in chronological order, beginning with a first section articulated by Pablo Picasso, one of the most universal Spanish artists.

The exhibition, organised by SECC (The State Society for Cultural Commemoration), brings together twenty original and unpublished works, created especially for the occasion by some of the most preeminent contemporary Spanish artists: Andreu Alfaro, Eduardo Arroyo, Rafael Canogar, Martín Chirino, Alberto Corazón, Susy Gómez, Cristina Iglesias, Carmen Laffón, Francisco Leiro, Eva Lootz, Julio López Hernández, Blanca Muñoz, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Miquel Navarro, Carlos Pazos, Javier Pérez, Jaume Plensa, José María Sicilia, Susana Solano and Darío Villainy. The selected artists have created their own personal, unpredictable and original interpretations, a far cry from the illustrations of yesteryear.
