The Divine Morales
MADRID  •  Museo Nacional del Prado  •  1 October 2015 - 10 January 2016
 

Luis de Morales was one of the most original and recognisable artists of the Spanish Renaissance and a key reference point in painting in Extremadura in the second half of the 16th century. Morales was considered to have his own particular style, a distinguishable “brand name” that appears in numerous inventories and is represented in many Spanish and international collections. Morales’s most important and characteristic works were widely known due to the existence of his own studio and to the repetitions of them by other painters and followers. Only El Greco can be considered a comparable phenomenon in Spain from approximately 1585 onwards in terms of the dissemination of his art and his commercial success.

This exhibition highlights the artistic activity and personality of Luis de Morales almost a century after the Museodel Prado presented the first monographic exhibition on the artist. The Museum has 23 panels by the artist and his studio, making it the most important holding of Morales in terms of quantity and quality.

Sergi Aguilar: Reverse/Obverse (1972–2015)
BARCELONA  •  Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA).  •  4 June 2015 - 31 January 2016
 
 

Reverse/Obverse (1972-2015) takes us through four decades of the sculptural practice of Sergi Aguilar (Barcelona, 1946). The exhibition is organised as a sinuous journey, a non-chronological account that explores certain consistent creative tensions in the artist's work, such as the dialogue between object and process, moderation and accumulation, solidity and lightness, the artificial and the natural, and place and displacement.

As an artist, Sergi Aguilar questions some of the principal paradigms that have shaped the language of sculpture in the context of Spain from the early seventies to the present. At the same time, seen from today's perspective, his work minimises the role played by formalist interpretations. This uncomfortable stance with the historiographic narrative and its reading codes, with general genealogies and certain specific analysis, not only affects this sculptor from Barcelona but a whole generation of artists whose work has evolved beyond the attributions that were once ascribed to them.

The exhibition is structured around five episodes - ‘Tools and measures', ‘Geometries', ‘Signs and landscape', ‘Place and territory' and ‘Fugues and time' - that create a dialogue between the pieces and the thematic cycles of different periods, recreating the dynamics of the artist's own working space.
