Art Fiction. Comisart: new perspectives on the ”la Caixa” Collection
Barcelona, 25 September 2013
Contemporary art, seen through an unconventional prism: that of science fiction. The new exhibition project at CaixaForum Barcelona, entitled Art Fiction. Comisart: new perspectives on the ”la Caixa” Collection, is an investigation of unexplored routes in contemporary art.
In it, the curators, Jaime González Cela and Manuela Pedrón Nicolau, invite visitors to reflect on the relations between the works selected from a wide range of perspectives linked to the idea of other worlds and the end of our own as we know it. González and Pedrón suggest an original reading of the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection based on works by Jorge Barbi, Rogelio López Cuenca, Aernout Mik, Thomas Schütte, Andreas Slominski, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Juan Ugalde and Ante Timmermans, along with pieces on loan by two young Spanish artists: Elena Alonso and Nicolás Combarro.
Art Fiction is the first of the three shows to be presented at CaixaForum Barcelona over the coming months as part of Comisart, the new programme launched by ”la Caixa” Foundation to provide opportunities for professionalising the Spanish curatorial sector and to encourage new readings of its contemporary art collection.
Art Fiction. Comisart: new perspectives on the ”la Caixa” Collection will be open from september 26 to december 22 at CaixaForum Barcelona.
