    Mohamedi, Nasreen. Untitled, Ca. 1970. Ink and graphite on paper, 47,4 x 47,4 cm. KIRAN NADAR MUSEUM OF ART
    September 22, 2015 - January 11, 2016

    Nasreen Mohamedi (Karachi, 1937 – Baroda, 1990) was one of the first Indian artists to embrace abstraction, moving away from the more conventional doctrines of Indian modern art in the early decades of the 20th century. She chose non-figuration, an artistic practice marginalised at that time by independent India, which was essentially dominated by an anthropomorphous aesthetic and academic realism determined by art schools from the colonial period.

    Constant Rode sector, 1958. © Constant, VEGAP, Madrid, 2015
    October 20, 2015 - February 29, 2016

    For almost twenty years, Constant (Constant Anton Nieuwenhuys, Amsterdam, 1920 – Utrecht, 2005) realised scale models, paintings, drawings and collages displaying his concept of a nomad city of the future – New Babylon – a complex and expansive labyrinth that transformed the whole world into one sole network. The earth would be collective property, work would be completely automated and run by robots and people would have the freedom to devote their time to creative play.

    Alexandre Estrela Antípodas, 2011. Double proyection on screen
    December 15, 2015 – March 21, 2016
    Program: Fisuras

    Alexandre Estrela (Lisbon, 1971) uses film and video as the core mediums in his artistic practice, which he defines as an approach to “formal and conceptual questions resulting from the intersection between images and subject matter”. With broad technical and historical knowledge of the mediums he employs, Estrela creates complex systems, making use of the characteristics of the equipment he works with: from the camera, video projector and screen to the perceptive reception of images.

    Ree Morton

    Be a Place, Place an Image, Imagine a Poem

    The work of Ree Morton (Ossining, NY, 1936 – Chicago, 1977) can be found in the specific art scene in the USA around 1970, characterised by a strong reaction to Abstract Expressionism, via Minimal art, on the one hand, and Conceptual art and Pop art on the other. Different hard-to-classify movements materialised and were defined by Lucy Lippard as “Eccentric Abstraction”, or, for instance, Post-minimalism and phenomenological and performative practices inclined towards ritualism, animism and the body.

    Collectionism and Modernity

    Two Case Studies: The Im Obersteg and Rudolf Staechelin Collections

    It was not the work of artists, critics and curators alone that made the development of modern and contemporary art possible. Another factor related to both economic and social concerns intervened as a catalyst in the process. This was art collecting.

    Vista de sala de la exposición. Federico Guzmán. Tuiza. Las culturas de la jaima, 2015
    April 16 – August 30, 2015

    Federico Guzmán

    Tuiza. The Cultures of the Bedouin Tent

    Actively working since the mid 1980s, Federico Guzmán (Seville, 1964) has always viewed artistic practice as a commitment to his environment. His spells in New York and Bogotá at the end of the 1990s lead him to lay great emphasis on this idea as he became particularly aware of art as a tool for social change, as well as understanding the figure of the artist and seeing his work as something inextricably linked to the context he lived in.

    Daniel García Andújar. Estamos vigilando, 1994. Intervention in public space, image of La Concha beach in San Sebastián, Spain. Variable dimensions. Courtesy of the artist
    January 21 - May 4, 2015

    Daniel G. Andújar

    Operating System

    Through interventions in public space and a critical use of digital media and the communication strategies of the corporations connected to it, the theoretical and artistic work developed by Daniel G. Andújar (Almoradí, Alicante, 1966) oscillates between territories that are real (the city) and virtual (the Net). He sets out from the premise that when displaying/dissecting the connections found between both, the inequalities that generate social and power relations are envisaged in a context like the current one.

    Patricia Gadea

    Atomic-Circus

    Atomic-Circus is the first retrospective devoted to the work of artist Patricia Gadea (Madrid, 1960 – Palencia 2006), a key figure in the revival of Spanish painting in the 1980s and 1990s. Her painting emerged at a time of experimentation with freedom, sheltered by the movida cultural movement in Madrid and an atmosphere of euphoria brought about by democratic change.
