The Reconfigured Landscape
Jun 23 – Jan 13, 2019

Sol Lewitt, Wall Drawing #499

The 1st floor of the Centro Botín will host a selection of works from the Botín Foundation collection with works by renowned national and international artists who started creating in the final decades of the 20th century. Names like Sol LeWittLeonor Antunes, Lothar Baumgarten, Tacita Dean, Joan Jonas, Irene Kopelman, Julie Mehretu or Oriol Vilanova reveal the different ways of representing the world around them and offer visitors a historic perspective of the work of the Botín Foundation in the field of the visual arts in the past decade. Most of the pieces have never been exhibited before.

 

Jacobo Castellano, Sin título, 2017

Fernanda Fragateiro, Um caminho que não é um caminho, 2005

Ignacio Uriarte, The Kingdom, 2013

Joan Jonas, Stream or river, flight or pattern, 2016

Nuria Fuster, Don Quijote también esculpió el aire, 2012

This exhibition includes works by artists who have directed some of the Botín Foundation’s Plastic Arts workshops in Santander, co-existing with other beneficiaries of the Grant program, younger creators who are considered to be key figures of their generation, such as João Onofre, Sara Ramo or Ignacio Uriarte.

“This generational mix is an important dynamic of the collection and offers an interesting perspective on 21st century artistic practice, highlighting the formal freedom that the creators have been consolidating over the past fifty years,” assures Benjamin Weil, artistic director of the Centro Botín and curator of this exhibition.

 

Oriol Vilanova, Si la noche fuese un color, 2017

João Onofre, Ghost, 2009/2012

Lothar Baumgarten, Montaigne/Pemón, 1977-85

Tacita Dean, JG, 2013

Julie Mehretu, Epigraph, Damascus, 2016

In addition to painting, drawing and sculpture, The Reconfigured Landscape includes videos and multimedia facilities, an artistic modality that represents the avant-garde of artistic research in recent decades.

“We can consider this exhibition to be a journey through the artistic landscape of these past years in which the artists have looked for different ways of representing the world around them,” highlights Weil.
