The Fundació Suñol is exhibiting a collection of works from its own collection that brings together diverse artists, featuring work by Luis Gordillo, Man Ray, Zush, Richard Avedon, Luis Frangella, Carlos Pazos, Jaume Plensa, José Luis Alexanco, Ramon Guillen-Balmes, María José Lacadena, Christo, Jordi Colomer, Claudio Bravo, Ferran Freixa, Ignasi Aballí, Antoni Tàpies, Juan Genovés, José María Sicilia, Alberto García-Alix, Joan Rom, Jaume Xifra, Robert Llimós, Idroj Sanicne, Sergi Aguilar, Federico Guzmán, Manuel Millares, Pello Irazu, Max Bill and Miquel Mont.
The exhibition is grouped into seven different subject areas: gazing; reading; covering up; value; walking/resting; holes; and the colour red. It occupies the first floor of the gallery on Passeig de Gràcia, opens its doors to the public on Wednesday and will run until September.
The tour starts in a silent intimacy with photographs by Richard Avedon and Man Ray and ends in an explosion of colour and violence with the monumental paintings of José María Sicilia and the torn burlap works of Manuel Millares.
Along the way we are treated to extraordinary pieces such as Llibre de vidre (1982), by Jaume Plensa, consisting of torn transparent pages with poems by Antoni Tàpies Barba.
The Fundació Suñol will also feature a monographic dedicated to Darío Villalba, an artist whose work has scarcely been exhibited in Barcelona.
The new ’Nivell Zero’ exhibition space will be dedicated to young artists and will exchange pieces with other similar exhibition spaces.
