This exhibition aims to strike up a dialogue between the Fundació Suñol’s collection and the collection built up by Lleida City Council over the course of the eight editions of the Leandre Cristòfol Art Biennial. Josep Suñol began to put his private collection together in the 1970s with works from between 1915 and 2008; the pieces brought together by the Centre d’Art la Panera range from 1991 to 2012, including works acquired for the 2013 biennial.
Despite the obvious generation gap, there is a certain continuity in the criteria and approaches in the works selected from both collections that highlights some of the key features that have characterised art in our country in recent years.
This project also sets out to bring together and compare a major private contribution such as the Fundació Suñol in Barcelona—which has put its collection together over more than four decades—with a public art centre such as the Centre d’Art la Panera, which is managed by Lleida City Council and opened in 2003.
The same exhibition will be shown at Centre d’Art la Panera from october 2014 to January 2015.
