The exhibition Between by Antoni Muntadas (Barcelona, 1942) at CAM – Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is a selection from the broader show recently presented at the Reina Sofia National Museum of Art.
Focused on works from the 1970s, the onset of Muntadas’ artistic career, this exhibition allows us to make contact with a series of works that were never before seen in Portugal and which boast a remarkable conceptual and creative vitality.
Also noteworthy is the entire occupation of gallery 01 with a rarely shown installation, Exhibition (1987), a remarkable work in which the institutional critique, the rigor of means and the reflection on the very own museological mechanisms is taken to an extreme of refinement and of communicational efficacy - some of the characteristics that run through all of the artist’s oeuvre.
Exhibition organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian
