Antoni Muntadas

Macba, Barcelona

Exposición permanente

 

On Subjectivity, obra de Antoni Muntadas, presente en la exposición Un siglo breve: colección Macba.

Esta nueva muestra presenta un recorrido cronológico a través de la Colección MACBA desde 1929 hasta el presente. En 1929 Barcelona acogió la Exposición Universal, para la que Mies van der Rohe diseñó el Pabellón Alemán o Pabellón Barcelona junto con Lilly Reich. Por iniciativa de Josep Lluís Sert y Josep Torres i Clavé, se fundó el GATCPAC (Grupo de Arquitectos y Técnicos Catalanes para el Progreso de la Arquitectura Contemporánea). André Breton escribió el Segundo manifiesto surrealista y, en París, un grupo de artistas abstractos, liderados por Joaquín Torres-García y Michel Seuphor, fundó Cercle et Carré. Aquel mismo año se inauguró el Museo de Arte Moderno de Nueva York (MoMA) y Virginia Woolf publicó su ensayo feminista Una habitación propia

Artium, Vitoria-Gasteiz

21.9.2018 – 25.8.2019

 

La exposición Queda mucho pasado por delante. Oroi nos enfrenta a la Colección de Artium como una imagen de la memoria, múltiple y compleja del presente. Memoria que nos constituye como personas, que da cuerpo al lenguaje y a la representación, al tiempo y al documento, al enigma y la sospecha. La exposición incluye 102 obras de la Colección, herramientas de análisis que abordan la memoria desde diferentes implicaciones sociales y culturales en su relación con la historia, la economía o el poder.

muntadas-contexto

 

Galeria Joan Prats presents the exhibition Edicions II by Muntadas, which gathers a selection of serial works the artist has developed since 2003 up to the present day in different formats: publications, prints, videos, objects, installations and other graphic materials. This exhibition completes the work started in the exhibition Edicions, made at Galeria Joan Prats in 2003.

 

«The first time Muntadas talked to me about the exhibition Edicions II at the Galeria Joan Prats, he referred to it as an “exhibition of deltas”. I asked him to elaborate: “my projects are one, they are units. But these units diversify into huge quantities of postcards, there could be up to 100.000 postcards, and could even include 17 metal plaques distributed throughout the city in the form of signage, or a web page. So, the project finally appears as the sum of three collections of remains; that is of deltas” (…)

 

Editions allowed Muntadas to achieve a more porous and plural circulation by its multiplication and intervention capacities across diverse media and in different time frames. While his projects usually consist in one video, one installation, or one urban intervention, his publications are rarely made up of a single unique element (…)

 

A truly genuine notion of project has also emerged throughout Muntadas’ career. The artist tackles the project, on the one hand, as the logic behind a series of procedures, based on the repetition of processes and strategies and on the other, the project defines itself following the logic of a work in progress, generating moments of aperture. In this way, the notion of project, as Muntadas states, has allowed him to depart from a type of intuitive and immediate practice while helping him to structure flexible environments, open to unpredictability, developing platforms to work in the long run (…)

 

The editorial work and the publications is where Muntadas has experimented more precociously and with more intensity than in any other medium the collaborative methods that have ended up impregnating the whole of his work. Here is where one finds the deployment of strategies that catalyse translation no longer, as just a metaphor, so much as in particular a process of bidirectional exchange.»

 

Fragments of Oriol Fontdevila’s text Piscine Obliviousness. Amphibious editions, from the exhibition catalogue.

 

Muntadas, born in Barcelona and living in New York since 1971, was a pioneer of video and installation in the mid-seventies, and continued working with photography, video, installation, audio, and urban interventions. Iterations of his iconic projects, such as Between the Frames: The Forum (1983-1993), The Board Room (1985), and the on-going series On Translation (1995- …) and The Construction of Fear (2008- …) – have been exhibited in institutions and galleries of the USA, Latin America, Europe and the Mid-West. Muntadas participated in the Documenta’s 1977 and 1997 editions, the Whitney Biennial of 1991, the Bienal de São Paulo of 1983, the Bienal de La Habana of 2000, the Taipei Biennal of 2002, the Gwangju Biennale of 2004, the Instanbul Biennal of 2011, and the Paris’ La Triennale of 2012. In 2005, he represented Spain in the Venice Biennale, where he created an integral project about the architectonical evolution of the Biennale throughout its history. His works have been included in exhibitions at MACBA, Barcelona; Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City; Weserburg Museum, Bremen; Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Buenos Aires; Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart; and Estação Pinacoteca, São Paulo. Since 2011 he has been working on the project Asian Protocols, presented to the public for the first time at Total Museum of Seoul (2014), and for the second time at 3331 Arts Chiyoda of Tokyo (2016). The next step of the project will be its development in China.

muntadas-1

CGAC Santiago de Compostela

17.02 – 17.06.2018

 

Muntadas construye un discurso transdisciplinar centrado en la crítica de los medios de comunicación; sitúa la función extensiva del arte en la interacción con las ciencias sociales, los medios de masas y las nuevas tecnologías de la información para desvelar los mecanismos lingüísticos del poder. En los años setenta crea el término media landscape para denominar este nuevo paisaje mediático que es, desde entonces, el objeto principal de su investigación.

 

Estrategias del desplazamiento es una muestra que revisa el trabajo de Muntadas a través de proyectos específicos e incorpora el giro reciente de su mirada hacia el paisaje. El autor traza un recorrido que refiere un territorio inestable, cargado de interrogantes, en una selección de proyectos que convergen en torno a tres ideas: perder(se), desaparecer, ir(se).

 

La exposición refleja una dimensión esencial del trabajo de Muntadas, ya que el conjunto constituye un proyecto de proyectos abierto, en proceso. Los vídeos Dérive Veneziane (2015), Guadiana (2017) y Finisterre (2017) —los dos últimos realizados para esta exposición— interactúan con trabajos como Media Sites / Monuments: Buenos Aires (2007), Double Exposure (1998-2007), On Translation: Fear/Miedo (2005), On Translation: Miedo/Jauf (2007), Situaciones (2008) y La Siesta / The Nap / Dutje (1995).

Paris Photo 2017

Galeria Joan Prats is presenting Hannah Collins (London, 1956) and Antoni Muntadas (Barcelona, 1942), for Paris Photo Fair.

 

The method used by Collins in The interior and the exterior, Noah Purifoy, 2015, pays tribute to Walker Evans, through documentation of the sculptures by African-American artist Purifoy (1917-2004) and also with voices recordings.

 

Muntadas, continues his research on the places of power with Architektur / Räume / Gesten II, 2017. In these 10 triptychs, Muntadas assembles archival images, connecting places of power with gestures. The artist thus highlights the way in which the architectural form crystallizes gestures and decisions of power.

Ensimismamiento

Port de Sagunt, Valencia, 1955

Lives and works between New York and Saro (Cantabria)

 

 

Victoria Civera’s career began in the seventies, working mainly photomontage. Over the next decade she focused on painting, abstract at first, but then introduced figurativism. In the middle of this decade Victoria Civera moves to New York and integrates photography and sculpture to her practice. Her creations undergo a transformation, making them more introspective.

 

Because of the iconography of her work, focused on the feminine universe, and because of her oneiric content, Victoria Civera has achieved a personal language, full of nuances. She moves in between large-scale pieces, in which she uses industrial materials, and suggested and poetic understatement pieces, often incorporating ordinary household objects.

Muntadas Look, See, Perceive

Barcelona, 1942

Lives and works between Barcelona, New York and Venice.

 

 

Antoni Muntadas’s work has developed from its beginning –early seventies– a constant criticism towards the languages and messages of the media as clear instruments of power.

 

Since the first moment he used the video as useful tool to dissect and make the mechanisms of communications visible, referring to television and the designated `media landscape´. This genuine study and treatment turned him into an early pioneer in the audiovisual artistic field.

 

Likewise, Muntadas has analyzed and questioned the relationships that are established between the public and the private through his video works, photographs and multimedia installations; it’s from the early nineties that he incorporates internet to this list.

 

Also, since the 90s, he initiates new kinds of long-term. In each of these projects a principal concept is developed, which extends through different stages and contexts.
