What makes an artist inmortal? What launches him into posterity? Which elements come into play for an artwork to become a “contemporary-classic”? How is the canon built in art?
On the occasion of the exhibition Known masterpieces, Fundació Suñol organizes a conversation between Valentín Roma and Ángela Molina opened to the public around the masterpiece status. Their intention is to reflect on this widely present in art history condition and its meaning and involvement in contemporary times.
Valentín Roma (1970), curator of Known masterpieces in collaboration with the Fundació Suñol team, is a writer, Art History doctor, exhibition curator and actual director of La Virreina Centre de la Imatge (Barcelona). Throughout his career he has curated diverse contemporary art exhibitions for the Museo Picasso, Fundació Antoni Tàpies or CaixaForum, among other institutions. His literary works include the novels El enfermero de Lenin (2017) and Retrato del futbolista adolescente (2019).
Ángela Molina (1962) is graduated in Spanish Philology and has a PhD on Literary Theory and Comparative. She is a writer, art critic and a specialist in feminist theory and gender studies. She has been the director of the art and thought magazine Art&Co and has collaborated in the culture supplement of the newspaper ABC, in the art and literature sections of the cultural supplements Babelia and Quadern (El País) and in several specialized publications. She has also given multiple conferences on art, literature and architecture in prestigious universities and museums, international forums and art fairs.
