  • 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.

  • Exhibition view. Black Mountain College. Una aventura americana, 2002
    28 october, 2002 - 13 january, 2003

    Black Mountain College was an art school located in the south-west of North Carolina, United States and had its doors open between 1933 and 1956; some of the most iconic names on the American art scene at that time attended. Its liberal educational system encompassed different artistic disciplines which were taught based on experimentation. Students were divided into "Junior" who worked in small groups and "Senior", who agreed to a system of individualised tutoring. There were no loans or notes; the only assessment was an exam the student requested when they thought they were ready.

  • Exhibition view. New Realisms: 1957-1962. Object Strategies Between Readymade and Spectacle, 2010
    June 16 - October 4, 2010

    New Realisms: 1957-1962

    Object Strategies Between Readymade and Spectacle

    The exhibition New Realisms: 1957-1962 focuses on one of the most important periods of changes in art during the twentieth century, beginning with the completion of Modernism and ending during the peak of Postmodernism. This period brings together a heterogeneous multiplicity of decisive manifestations and creates a new discourse on art and its contexts, leaving Abstraction and the mastery of painting behind. At this time interest shifts from the conventional art object to processes, while questioning the production systems and the consumption of art; the foundations for a great change in the paradigms of art during the sixties are laid.

    November 26 - March 28, 2011

    ATLAS

    How to carry the world on one’s back?

    Atlas is a proposal to put the frame of thought introduced by German art historian Aby Warburg (1866-1929) into the context of historical knowledge and images. This is not a monographic exhibition on Warburg, but a journey through the history of images from 1914 until the present day, where warburgism constitutes the genius loci.
