The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is organizing Antoni Tàpies, from Object to Sculpture (1964-2002), an exhibition devoted to the lesser known facets of the painter: his sculptures and assemblages.
The catalogue brings together all the works presented in the exhibition, works from various international museums and collectors, which reveal a lesser known aspect of the artist, thus adding to knowledge about the conceptual art that the artist Antoni Tàpies developed throughout his highly productive life
Accompanied by texts written by both the curator and an internationally renowned art critic or historian, as well as texts by other artists about the master.
The documentary annex will contain a glossary, a chronology and a biography which reflect the latest research on the artist.
This is the first complete analysis of the sculptures and objects created by Tàpies, encompassing the whole of his artistic production for almost five decades. The exhibition is conceived as a chronological analysis of Tàpies' sculptural work and as a methodical examination of his treatment of space, revealing conceptual genealogies which locate sculpture, the object and assemblage on the front line of the artist's investigations.
