El arte actual obliga a sus espacios a cambiar continuamente, a adaptarse a formas artísticas del futuro próximo que ni siquiera sabemos todavía como van a ser, por eso necesitamos cerrar para realizar una reforma en nuestros espacios. ¡Nos vemos en octubre!
For the first time, more than 400 works by 250 artists are coming together in an exhibition that showcases the CA2M collections and takes up the entire museum space. It is a celebration of what the museum represents and has represented from the beginning. This journey begins with the historical avant-garde - all the artists who accompanied Picasso at the Pavilion of the Spanish Republic - and continues through history up to the present day. It is not only an international exhibition, as are all the CA2M and the ARCO Foundation collections, but also a story that is told from inside this institution, from the collections it holds, and ultimately, from Móstoles.
As a Picnic Society, the CA2M invites several curators each year to design a program for the terrace of the Center. Every Thursday from the end of May to the beginning of July our terrace will become a space in which we will develop a program of activities in which the physical and the sound are mixed with the educational and participatory.
CA2M and Turner are producing the Spanish reprint of this book, published in Rotterdam by Kunstinstituut Melly.
This monograph addresses one of the most multifaceted and fundamental artists in the world of Latin American contemporary art today.
La obra está realizada en materiales de diversa naturaleza, por lo que se podría hablar de una aproximación al collage: hay diversos elementos adheridos y otros, como las piezas textiles, se encuentran insertadas en un soporte celulósico, lo que le aporta una cierta tridimensionalidad. El motivo de la intervención fue la pérdida de adhesión de los elementos sustentados.
One year later, the question that underpins these conferences, challenges us, if possible, even more directly For which bodies, for what histories. In the face of the general uncertainty and the absolute lack of historical precedence that we are going through, this question confronts us with the contingency of history in the materiality of our bodies given the very violence that a brutal and savage irruption like this pandemic entails. We are confident that the curatorial threads - which were once amassed with rigour and care, and which are now being taken up again with the understanding of a vital transformation - continue to make sense.
A collection encompasses the present continuous, past perfect and future perfect. The Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo houses the Contemporary Art Collection of the Autonomous Community of Madrid, now called the CA2M Collection, and the ARCO Foundation Collection.
El Premio ARCO Comunidad de Madrid para Jóvenes Artistas fue creado en 2004 para reconocer la mejor obra de artes plásticas incluyendo pintura, dibujo, cómic, grabado, esculturas, técnicas mixtas, fotografía, instalaciones así como cualquier otro soporte de expresión artística, sin limitación de tema ni técnica.
It was deposited at the CA2M in 2014, through a loan agreement between the Autonomous Community of Madrid and the ARCO Foundation. The ARCO Foundation Collection, set up with the idea of promoting the interest of collecting in Spain, stood out for being one of the first international contemporary art collections that has been able – from a Spanish standpoint but with an international vision – to tell the history of art from the 1970s to the present day, bringing together a reference list of some of its fundamental names.
The decision to restore this work was taken following an application for the loan of the work received from Centre Pompidou in Paris for the retrospective exhibition CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI. FAIRE SON TEMPS (13 November 2019 - 16 March 2020). The installation comprises a total of 360 elements in different materials and formats.
This exhibition catalogue brings together the works on display, documents, photographs, and texts by Mariano Navarro, María Escribano, María Vela Zanetti and Miguel Cereceda; a writing and poetry anthology by the artist himself; and testimonials by Guillermo Pérez Villalta, Chema Cobo, Fernando Huici, Ignacio Gómez de Liaño, Borja Casani, Mireia Sentís, José Luis Gallero, Jacobo Fitz-James Stuart, Clara Díaz-Aguado, Lola Moriarty, José Tono Martínez, Fernando Castro and Domingo Sánchez Blanco.
