FERNANDO VIJANDE. Retrat: 1971-1987

La gran aposta expositiva de la Fundació Suñol per al 2017 gira al voltant de la figura de Fernando Vijande (Barcelona, 1930 – Madrid, 1986), ocupant totes les sales de que disposa la Fundació Suñol, incloent el Nivell Zero. 51 artistes participen en aquest recorregut per la trajectòria professional d’un dels galeristes que més va recolzar, consolidar i visibilitzar l’obra de tots aquells que van exposar a la Galería Vandrés (1971-1980) com posteriorment a la Galería Vijande (1981-1987).

Josep Suñol va ser partícip d’aquest moment, fet que va fer sorgir una de les relacions entre col·leccionisme i galerisme més interessants a Espanya. Fernando Vijande va mantenir des del primer moment una línia original, apostant pels moviments avantguardistes, però fiant-se més dels seus propis gustos i criteris estètics que de les modes del món de l’art. Aquesta aposta es va veure recolzada a l’exposició New Images from Spain, realitzada l’any 1980 al Guggenheim de Nova York, i en la qual Fernando Vijande va tenir l’oportunitat de mostrar diferents artistes que havien exposat a les seves galeries. Aquesta mostra va significar la seva consagració com a marxant i galerista a nivell internacional, i va ajudar a donar visibilitat internacional a tots aquells creadors que Vijande promovia.


L’exposició compta amb obres de 51 artistes exposades a les galeries Vandrés i Vijande, i també obres actuals dels mateixos artistes, acompanyades de documentació sobre aquell període tan vibrant i transgressor. Alguns dels artistes que participen en aquest homenatge van adquirir reconeixement internacional durant el període viscut a les Galeries Vandrés i Vijande, entre els quals trobem a Juan Bordes, Carmen Calvo, Joan Hernández Pijuan, Nino Longobardi, entre d’altres. Fernando Vijande també va exposar artistes internacionals com Robert Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe o Andy Warhol, les obres dels quals també podrem trobar a la mostra.

Aquest projecte ha estat coorganitzat entre la Fundació Suñol i José Luis Alexanco, partícip d’aquell moment i coneixedor de la trajectòria de Fernando Vijande.

The Fundació Suñol organizes some commented tours for individual audience through the exhibition FERNANDO VIJANDE. Portrait: 1971-1987. During the 70s and the 80s, Spanish art lived a very vibrant and transgressive moment, leaving important leading figures like Fernando Vijande. He was the gallery owner that promoted both nationally and internationally the work of the artists he represented at Galería Vandrés (1971-1980) and Galería Fernando Vijande (1981-1987).

Some of these creators include Robert Llimós, Antoni Muntadas, Darío Villalba, Teresa Gancedo, Luis Lugán, Carmen Calvo or Zush. Furthermore, Vijande also exhibited international artists whose work had never been seen in Spain, like Jannis Kounellis, Andy Warhol or Robert Mapplethorpe. This tribute counts on the participation of many of them and aims to be an account of his contribution and legacy.

Patricio Vélez. Las formas del tiempo @ Fundació Suñol
Apr 26 @ 7:30 pm – Sep 8 @ 4:30 am
Patricio Vélez. Las formas del tiempo @ Fundació Suñol | Barcelona | Catalunya | España

For this first retrospective exhibition by Patricio Vélez (Quito, 1945; based in Barcelona since 1976), we have selected almost a hundred works of art from amongst a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, engravings and photographs, with the intention of offering a representative panorama of the work carried out by the artist over more than half a century.

Patricio Vélez studied architecture in Quito, Barcelona and Paris, but shortly after obtaining his degree, painting became a priority in his life. His first solo exhibition took place in 1977 in the Ciento gallery in Barcelona. His works are like atlases or mental and sensory cartographies of the natural world. Their author likes to say that they are “transfigurations of nature”.

The vegetal world is the base fabric of his work. In it, a framework populated by signs is formed in which every stroke organises and creates images of rich ambiguity. This in turn strikes a balance between a near and at the same time distant vision, resulting in a sort of “landscape writing”. He very often creates different works around a same theme.

In the exhibition we present some of these “variations”, which in certain cases become narrative sequences. In much the same way, we can observe that the exhibition addresses the constant matters of the visual arts: colour, line, surface, chiaroscuro, fragmentations and analogies, amongst others.

ACTE 39: Antoni Abad. measure X measure. 1992’2015
May 10 @ 7:30 pm – Sep 8 @ 8:30 pm
[:ca]ACTE 39: Antoni Abad. mesura X mesura. 1992’2015[:es]ACTE 39: Antoni Abad. medida X medida. 1992’2015[:en]ACTE 39: Antoni Abad. measure X measure. 1992’2015[:]

Fundació Suñol presents the exhibition ACTE 39: Antoni Abad. measure X measure. 1992’2015, a project specifically set for Nivell Zero, which includes Antoni Abad’s work from the 90’s up until 2010. All these works are directly related to his own research about the idea of measurement and language, and the relation between them.

In 1992 Antoni Abad met Josep Suñol in the building of Passeig de Gràcia that later became Fundació Suñol, but back then it wasn’t open as a museum. The artist had the opportunity to discover the Josep Suñol Collection at its early developing stages. He did an installation with measuring tape all around Butaca (1987) – an Antoni Tàpies’ piece of art that belongs to the Collection, which was exhibited at that time. This piece will be shown again at Nivell Zero along with many other works from Antoni Abad.

The curator of the exhibition, Eugeni Bonet, added an original text from 1995 that describes Abad’s work called Pesos y medidas that has been rewritten for the occasion. There will also be a downloadable online publication on the website with all the information and content shown in the exhibition.

Daniel G. Andújar. The Disasters of War
May 30 @ 7:30 pm – Sep 15 @ 8:00 pm
[:ca]Daniel G. Andújar. Els desastres de la guerra[:es]Daniel G. Andújar. Los desastres de la guerra[:en]Daniel G. Andújar. The Disasters of War[:]

The Fundació Suñol is pleased to present the project that Daniel G. Andújar (Almoradí, 1966) created for documenta 14, in 2017. Conceived as a visual protest against violence, it offers a present-day take on the representation of conflict in order to reveal its effect on people.

The first edition of documenta was held in 1955 with the aim of renewing the dialogue between Germany and the rest of the world that had been broken off by the Second World War, as well as making contact with the international art scene through a “presentation of 20th-century art”. The city of Kassel has played host to this event ever since and over time has become an indisputable benchmark for the evolving arts. The 2017 edition was entitled Learning from Athens, since it was not only held in Kassel, as usual, but was also on show beforehand in Athens.

The curators for documenta 14 invited the selected artists to think about the social and political situation in Europe and the rest of the world, as well as the palpable tension between North and South. This was the framework in which Daniel G. Andújar created the piece on display at the Fundació Suñol.

In Athens, the artist presented the first part of the project, entitled The Disasters of War: Repatriation Akademia, an interdisciplinary work centred on the ideas of nationality, public domain and cultural and intellectual property, as well as authenticity, reproduction, theft and the plunder of antiques. In Kassel, Andújar presented the second part of the project, The Disasters of War: The Trojan Horse, which explores ideas such as cultural identity and memory, as well as monuments, stereotypes and the concept of falsification and truth.

These two projects are being presented together for the first time, in conjunction with this publication, which contains texts by Imma Prieto and María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco.
