THREE NARRATIVES: LANGUAGE

16/07/2015 - 27/09/2015

CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

Three Narratives: Language is the last exhibition in the series Three Narratives: Participation, Memory and Language, curated by Enrique Juncosa. Based on works from the "la Caixa" Collection of Contemporary Art, the series takes a dialogue-oriented, literary approach to construct different narratives. Contemporary art has evolved into something that cannot be reduced to a single explanatory narrative. We are faced with an enormous variety of coexisting aesthetics, and it is not possible to develop a single account that explains the highly divergent artistic approaches that coexist today. This exhibition brings together works that reflect many of the predominant tendencies in the art of the last forty years. The show presents pieces by Giovanni Anselmo, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Andreas Gursky, Xavier Grau, Peter Halley, Jonathan Lasker, Bruce Nauman, Donald Judd, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Juan Uslé and Agnes Martin. The work of these artists focuses on semantic rather than formal issues, without turning away from questions related to language.
