Risk Zones. ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection
Madrid, 10 February 2009
How does art see the conflicts that are marking our existence in an ever more uncertain and unpredictable world? In what ways are artists and their works affected by the current unsettling scenario, dominated as it is by violence, inequality, social exclusion, isolation and the feeling of vulnerability? The exhibition Risk Zones. ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection advocates greater awareness of the complex social situation in which we live by presenting works by 14 artists from different generations and backgrounds, which together offer a living discourse on our society. Most of them were created post-2001, a landmark year in the shaping of the new political, social and economic order, and many of them are being shown in Madrid for the first time. Organised by the ”la Caixa” Foundation, the show will feature works by Carlos Amorales, Mona Hatoum, Miguel Ángel Ríos, Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Adrian Paci, Txomin Badiola, Jana Sterbak, Alicia Framis and Stephen Dean. Risk Zones. ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection will be open to the public at CaixaForum Madrid until 3 May 2009.
