CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo

COLLECTION CAPSULE. MANUEL SAIZ
2016 — 2017

Let´s Think Positive came about in 2003 as part of Manuel Saiz’s exhibition If Alive at Museo de L'Empordà in Figueres, Girona. The idea behind the show consisted in the beginning of the preparations for his future 65th birthday on 10 January 2026. The work on show, with the slogan we love party, is, for the artist, a vanitas that underscores the inevitable event of death, and also a critique of life as mere entertainment.

CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo exhibits capsules of its collection, which have been placed in transitory spaces throughout the museum, displaying works on a quasi-permanent basis. Each capsule is coupled with a contextualising video in which the artist and a knowledgeable expert speak about the work in question.
