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.
This exhibition is a selection of works recently included in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía collection and has been organised especially for their exhibition at the Wifredo Lam Center in Havana. The work of young artists who represent a range of techniques and disciplines that are current trends on the Spanish art scene have been chosen for the occasion. The selected artists assume in all cases a high degree of experimentation and innovation applied to different media present in the exhibition: painting, sculpture, installation and photography.
Federico Guzmán (Sevilla, 1964) transfers part of his experience and the close ties he has formed with Western Sahara over the past six years or more to the Palacio de Cristal, using plastic possibilities to explore the relationship between art and cultural identity.
