    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.

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.

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.

  • Pepe Espaliú. Sin título. Diez últimos dibujos, 1993. Drawing. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    14 october, 1998 - 11 january, 1999

    The exhibition Dibujos germinales. 50 artistas españoles. 1947-1998 provides a general and previously unimagined vision of drawing in Spain during the second half of the twentieth century, through fifty artists from different generations (from Eduardo Chillida to Eva Lootz or from Luis Gordillo to Azucena Vieites). Because it is an extended period and a relatively common practice for most of the authors, there is a need to find a conceptual unity that seeks to convey a general idea and propose a systematic structure. Therefore, in this exhibition drawing does not appear as a technique, rule or discipline, but as a starting point -germination in the strict sense- to delve into the mechanisms of creation and try to go beyond the notion of sketch or preparatory study.

  • Exhibition view. El arte sucede. Origen de las prácticas conceptuales en España (1965-1980), 2005
    11 october, 2005 - 9 january, 2006

    The exhibition El arte sucede. Origen de las prácticas conceptuales en España (1965-1980) (Art Happens: The Origin of Conceptual Practices in Spain 1965-1980) takes its title from James Whistler's saying “Art happens”. Whistler was an habitué to Stéphane Mallarmé's circle and worked in close proximity to his line of thought, the reflections of which contributed to establishing the basis of the interdisciplinary and supranational conception of art. The exhibition explores the appearance and development of Conceptual Art in Spain, bringing together an anthology of works realised by diverse artists with their own traits, linked by their experiences and interests whilst also sharing approaches with their international counterparts. These traits are defined by the multifarious relationship with popular culture, the social, the political, the subjective and the body itself.

    To summarise so far the exhibitory history of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía at the Abbey de Santo Domingo de Silos, this exhibition shows the work of each of the twenty-four Spanish artists who have participated until now. This project started in 1998 through the collaboration between the Ministry of Culture, the Monastery of Santo Domingo Silos and the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burgos. Entitled Silensis, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover the excellent relationship that has developed over all these years between the many contemporary artworks exhibited here and the historical space of the Abbey de Silos itself.
