Contemporary Cartographies. Drawing Thought. CaixaForum Barcelona

9 Sep

Dates: 25 July – 28 October 2012.

Place: CaixaForum Barcelona (Av. de Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 6-8).Curator: Helena Tatay.

We map our world in order to gain a glimpse of the reality in which we live. Since time immemorial, maps have been used to represent, translate and encode all kinds of physical, mental and emotional territories. Our representation of the world has evolved in recent centuries and, today, with globalisation and the Internet, traditional concepts of time and space, along with methods for representing the world and knowledge, have been definitively transformed. In response to this paradigm shift, contemporary artists question systems of representation and suggest new formulas for classifying reality.

The ultimate aim of Contemporary Cartographies. Drawing Thought, an exhibition that seeks to draw a map formed by cartographies created by twentieth- and twenty-first century artists, is to invite the visitor to question both the systems of representation that we use and the ideas that underpin them.

The exhibition, organised and produced by ”la Caixa” Foundation, is comprises more than 140 works in a wide range of formats – from maps and drawings to video installations and digital art – on loan from thecollections of several major contemporary art galleries. The artists represented include such essential figures as Salvador Dalí, Paul Klee, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Klein, Gordon Matta-Clark, Richard Hamilton, Mona Hatoum and Richard Long, shoulder-to-shoulder with a roster of contemporary artists, including Art & Language, Artur Barrio, Carolee Schneemann, Ana Mendieta, Erick Beltrán, On Kawara, Alighiero Boetti, Thomas Hirschhorn and Francis Alÿs, amongst others. Finally, the exhibition is completed by a series ofrevealing documents drawn up by experts from other fields, such as Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Lewis Carroll and Carl Gustav Jung.

Artists:
Ignasi Aballí, Francis Alÿs, Efrén Álvarez, Giovanni Anselmo, Art & Language, Zbynék Baladrán, Artur Barrio, Lothar Baumgarthen, Erick Beltrán, Zarina Bhimji, Ursula Biemann, Cezary Bodzianowski, Alighiero Boettti, Christian Boltanski, Marcel Broodthaers, Stanley Brown, Trisha Brown, Bureau d’Études, Los Carpinteros, Constant, Raimond Chaves y Gilda Mantilla, Salvador Dalí, Guy Debord, Michael Drucks, Marcel Duchamp, El Lissitzky, Valie Export, Evru, Öyvind Fahlström, Félix González-Torres, Milan Grygar, Richard Hamilton, Zarina Hashmi, Mona Hatoum, David Hammons, Thomas Hirschhorn, Bas Jan Ader, On Kawara, Allan Kaprow, William Kentridge, Robert Kinmont, Paul Klee, Yves Klein, Hilma af Klint, Guillermo Kuitca, Emma Kunz, Mark Lombardi, Rogelio López Cuenca, Richard Long, Cristina Lucas, Anna Maria Maiolino, Kris Martin, Gordon Matta-Clark, Ana Mendieta, Norah Napaljarri Nelson, Dorothy Napangardi, Rivane Neuenschwander, Perejaume, Grayson Perry, Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Vahida Ramujkic, Till Roeskens, Rotor, Ralph Rumney, Ed Ruscha, Carolee Schneemann, Robert Smithson, Saul Steinberg, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Willy Tjungurrayi, Joaquín Torres García, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, Adriana Varejao, Oriol Vilapuig, Kara Walker, Adolf Wölfli.

Mona Hatoum in Barcelona, until September 29th. Joan Miró Fundation.

7 Sep

This September, we can still enjoy, if we have not already done it, the first monographic exhibition of the British Palestinian artist in Barcelona.

 

Born in Beirut in 1952, Hatoum studies art between this city and the British capital, where she settled  after the Lebanese civil war starts. In the early 80 she became to work with the performance and video. After spending a long period minimalist works, she begins to increase political subjects in her works, taking a conceptual shift. Her subjects will then the performance of the power structures, the criticism of the general female stereotypes and gender criticism, exile and displacement. In this period we can find such important works with a dense content as Measures of Distance (1988).

In 1989 she makes her first sculptural installation: “The light at the end” in the

Showroom in London. In the 90s, her work turn in more metaphorical way, less narrative, and she builds large installations that invoke the body, the public-private dualism and rich conceptual games.

In 1995 she is finalist in the Turner Prize in London and in 1997 one of his works are included in the Sensation exhibition organized by the Saatchi Gallery, which runs through London, Berlin and New York. Hatoum is established as one of the most important artists of the late twentieth and early twenty-first.

Joan Miro Foundation is in Montjuïc mountain, a beautiful place to where you can go walking from The Urban Suites. Book now your suite or apartment!
