Avant-garde Views

Primary School Pupils

Gallery conversation

14 October, 2013 - 13 June, 2014

In the early decades of the 20th century a new society was being defined by habits, modes of production and the relationships between the people that defined it, changes that were reflected in the cultural context, where artistic experimentation with highly diverse results took place. In Avant-garde Views, pupils will perceive these circumstances through an analysis of one the Avant-garde’s favourite themes – the representation of the artists’ surroundings and the spaces encircling them.

School pupils in a moment of the visit

En las primeras décadas del siglo XX se va definiendo una nueva sociedad en cuanto a los hábitos, los modos de producción y las relaciones de las personas que la conforman. Estos cambios tienen su reflejo en el contexto cultural, donde se llevan a cabo experimentaciones plásticas  con resultados muy diversos. En Miradas de vanguardia los alumnos perciben todas estas cuestiones, a través  del análisis de uno de los temas predilectos de la vanguardia, la representación de los entornos próximos al artista y los espacios que le circundan.

Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and Ángeles Santos are just some of the artists that epitomise these processes in the visit. To this end, the programme of guided tours gives Primary Education Centres the chance to come into contact with the Museo Reina Sofía’s Collection 1 via a cultural volunteer in order to strengthen the intergenerational approach to contemporary culture.
