Intersecting memories. Collections as a territory for creation
29.09.2022 - 14.01.2023
The exhibition Intersecting memories. Collections as a territory for creation, presents a dialogue between the Collection of the Museo de Arte Abstracto Español from Cuenca, created by Fernando Zóbel in 1966 and whose owner has been since 1981 the Fundación Juan March by donation from Zóbel, and the Suñol Soler Collection. At the same time, the show features the current perspective of 7 contemporary artists who propose new creations from the historical collections brought together by collectors Fernando Zóbel and Josep Suñol Soler.
This project, curated by Glòria Picazo, presents the different agents and aspects that together comprise the ecosystem of art are brought into relation; from the role of the art institution to that of the collector, to the collection as an asset, to culture in general as a value added to the task of the institution; to the currently unavoidable question of the system’s environmental impact. All of these factors are called into view through specific interventions by different artists.
The exhibition is accompanied by a public program that will spread throughout Barcelona through collaboration with the city’s leading cultural institutions.
Artists: Elena Asins, Josep Guinovart, Asunción Molinos, Joana Moll, Antònia del Río, Pablo Palazuelo, Arnau Sala Saez, Susana Solano, Julia Spínola, Pep Vidal, Oriol Vilanova.
