As a follow-up to the 5th Anniversary exhibition held in 2012 under eight headings, the smaller-scale CONTINUUM now shows a selection of works of the Josep Suñol Collection that take a look over the last ninety years of artistic creation and offers an excellent platform for thinking about 20th-century art.
Through a selection of pieces created by national and international artists (Achille Perilli, Richard Avedon, Eduardo Arroyo, Man Ray, Jaume Plensa, Robert Llimós, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto García-Alix, Andy Warhol, Roman Buxbaum, José Noguero, Darío Villalba, Lucio Fontana, Giacomo Balla, Luis Lugán, Antoni Abad, Antonio Saura, Zush, Miquel Barceló, Jordi Sabaté, Isidre Manils, Antoni Tàpies and Sergi Aguilar) using different media (sculpture, photography, tapestry, painting, printing and mixed techniques), the visitor will have to live through his own experience, interacting between him itself as observant, the artist and his proposed work, and to think about the different approaches to a certain artistic subject matter, trying to admit this way the limits of the visual arts across the thought. The works in this exhibition create a whole host of interconnected communicative acts that explain the creative process behind the continuum of the visual arts over time and in the different forms they take.
Why is a face represented full face or in profile? What is it looking at? What moment is being captured? Why was one technique used rather than another? What is the purpose of a given composition? Why an artist writes on a surface as if his writing were seeking to reinforce the work’s simple materiality? How is it revealed on a canvas a dreamlike situation full of magical images that take us to the disturbing, unknown atmosphere of dreams? How do we figure out the expressionism from a work of art?
CONTINUUM’s aim is to set out the principles and interests that led Josep Suñol to bring together, exhibit and explain his collection of contemporary art over the last six years, through an intense itinerary over the most important artistic movements of the last century.
