‘Objects’ and ‘Sunday’: two new exhibitions at the Tàpies Foundation

These two exhibitions offer insights into the work of Antoni Tàpies and Oriol Vilanova.

Barcelona’s Antoni Tàpies Foundation is set to open two new exhibitions on Tuesday 7 February. Sunday, which is curated by the foundation’s director Carles Guerra, will run until 28 May. It is an installation made up of an enormous collection of postcards accumulated by Catalan, though Brussels-based artist and playwright Oriol Vilanova, who has built up his collection by buying different kinds of postcards from flea markets every Sunday for the last 15 years. The installation will be accompanied by a number of performances of dramatic works by Vilanova.

The other exhibition, Objects, is scheduled to run until 28 September and offers an insight into the time at the end of the 1960s when Antoni Tàpies began to include everyday objects, including brooms, plates, violins and doors, into his works, allowing him to express his social and political preoccupations in an intimate way at the height of the Franco dictatorship.

With the Aproximacions programme, the foundation is set to offer guided visits to both exhibitions every Saturday at 5pm. The programme also features special visits led by art experts. On 17 February and 28 April, art historian Glòria Moure and the foundation’s curator Núria Homs will lead a visit to Objects, while on 24 March, Carles Guerra will lead a visit to both exhibitions. Oriol Vilanova himself will be leading a group around the installation Sunday on 19 May.

Additional information is available from the Antoni Tàpies Foundation website.
