    Approaching the work of Antoni Tapies is currently clearing a real tangle of hindering any intention crossroads analytical. Approaching Tàpies path requires building a place safe from the mystifications generated by his figure and even safe from their own words. Face the Tàpies work right now claims investigation mechanisms that create new enclaves reading, counter-positions that allow thinking that same "against" in the etymological sense of the term more open, ie from antagonism but also from of certain extreme approach, abrasive and rebellious.

    Against Tàpies is a project that revolves around three different areas grammatical and expository: a chronological and thematic Tàpies inserted between genealogies little traffic, five specific projects undertaken by Usue Arrieta and Vicente Vázquez, Pep AgutLuis Guerra, Álvaro Perdices and Isaías Griñolo that challenge Tàpies from his biography, his public dimension and from various parts of his career, and finally, a compilation of works that seem tapianas not, transfigured Tàpies showing many other artists. Alongside these narratives meets a set of unpublished documentary materials that attempt to shore up the story of the project from horizons not only plastic.
