    Kerry James Marshall: painting and other stuff (12/06/2014)

    Palacio de Velázquez, Parque del Retiro
    Exhibitions

    Kerry James Marshall: painting and other stuff is the first major presentation in Europe of the work of this American artist (Birmingham, Alabama, 1955). Marshall is the author of an important body of figurative work in which he explores the themes of identity – national, gender, and especially racial identity – in an attempt to contextualize the Afro-American experience in today’s sociopolitical situation. The exhibition has been co-produced by four european museums: M HKA (Antwerp, Belgium), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhaguen, Denmark), Fundació Antoni Tàpies (Barcelona) and Museo Reina Sofía.

    Playgrounds. Reinventing the Square (29/04/2014)

    Main site
    Exhibitions

    The exhibition uses 300 artworks in very different formats (painting, sculpture, installations, video, photographie, graphic arts, film and papers) and the term playground to propose a historical-artistic look at play areas and their socializing, transgressive and political potential, from the beginning of modernity to our day. Making reference to the carnivalesque model as an irreverent and popular expression altering the established order, the exhibition explores the collective dimension of play as well as the social necessity of a space specifically for the construction of a new public sphere through artworks by Ensor, Goya, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Giacometti or Xabier Rivas.

    Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster. SPLENDIDE HOTEL (13/03/2014)

    Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Retiro
    Exhibitions

    The projects of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster (Strasbourg, France, 1965) invite the visitor on a journey through spaces and times where literature becomes a habitual practice of inhabiting the world. The artwork is redefined as a process beyond the concrete significance of objects. Literature and theatre constitute strategies for the configuration of an imaginary where physical space is no more than the tip of an iceberg traced out by the viewer on both real and fictional coordinates.

  • Wols, Sin título, Rep. 1976. Impresión a la gelatina de plata. 18,7 x 24 cm. Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V., Stuttgart

    Wols. Cosmos and Street (13/02/2014)

    Main site
    Exhibitions

    Wols is one of the most intriguing figures in 20th-century art. Wols: Cosmos and Street does not attempt a survey of Wols’s work, nor a retrospective with a chronological structure. Instead, the exhibition presents his work in terms of two distinct kinds of ‘graphism’: one of the light (photography) and one of the line (drawing).

    Biographies of Amos Gitai can be regarded as a case study within the framework of inquiry proposed by the exhibition Biographical Forms. Construction and Individual Mythology.
