Representantes del tiempo (Time Proxies) is Matthew Buckingham's (Nevada, USA, 1963) first individual exhibition in Spain. The exhibit of the multi-talented artist, displaying photography, video, audio, drawing and sculpture in different installation formats, is made up of a selection of works that identify and call into question the diverse processes of memory and the contrast between recollection and reality.
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.
Photography and Related Practices 1970s to the present
The use of images of the New York from early deindustrialisation and abandonment of the city during the Seventies are juxtaposed in, and exposed to, the counterpoint of more recent works by artists who, fully aware of the practices of their predecessors, continue finding an aesthetic potential in this area. Mixed Use, Manhattan is based on atime when the city served as an experimentation workshop. In this place fundamental artistic aspects intertwine, such as the future of the performing arts or the relationship between work and exhibition spaces, with other high social significance, such as sexual identity, socialisation modes and uses of public space.
