ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Collection 31
Through August 27, 2017

 

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona / MACBA

The exhibition MACBA Collection 31 offers a series of artistic itineraries built around three main subjects: experience, time and conflict. A museum collection is not only one of its main working areas, but also what configures its identity and determines its capacity to interact with the present.

The works in the exhibition question the various forms of conflict in today’s world, while reflecting on the relation of art with itself and its potential for interrogating reality. Moreover, they reclaim sensory experimentation, corporeality and the experience of time as fundamental conditions for artistic practice.

Curators: Ferran Barenblit and Antònia Maria Perelló
