Dialogues. First Part is an exhibition of twenty-four works of art from the Josep Suñol Collection arranged in twelve dialogues. These pieces reveal a common idea that ran right through the twentieth century: confrontation implies both affinities and discrepancies with initially similar subjects. These twelve dialogues offer an excellent example of opposition and agreement and aim to get visitors to reflect on these conceptual shifts.
The dialogues take place between works by the following artists:
Salvador Dalí – Joan Ponç
Juli González – Anthony Caro
Jean Arp – Lucio Fontana
Alexander Calder – Joan Miró
José Jardiel – Manolo Quejido
Shichiro Enjoji – Luis Gordillo
Sean Scully – Juan Uslé
Alberto Giacometti – Joan Rom
Antoni Tàpies – Jaume Xifra
Pietro Consagra – Luis Gordillo
Zush/Evru – José Noguero
Nino Longobardi – Manolo Valdés
As visitors move around the exhibition, they will find a wide variety of different dialogues, depending on the work in question, its form and the materials used, what it represents and its historical context. The conversations sparked by the selected works offer an excellent visual reading of the leading trends from the twentieth century.
