The Featured exhibition of the week

Fundació Tapies will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with the opening of Tapies. Artist Collection. An exhibition that joins a wide selection of the exhibits loaned by Antoni Tapies to his heirs together with his own private collection made with some the most vanguardist contemporary artists such as Picasso, Klee, Kandisnki, Miró and Pollock.

The exhibition, curated  by Núria Homs is a dialogue between genius along the decades of the 40's to final 80's that is completed with personal letters, pictures, invitations, catalogues and books such as Paul Klee diary, a special edition of Max Ernst  La Femme 100 têtes or a selection of Marcel Duchamp working documents.

As complementary activities, there will be courses, conferences and workshops as well as guided visits to all the audiences  with an special nod to those who are 25 during 2015, who will have an open access along the year. Besides, every sunday the museum will open doors for free to enjoy the exhibition.

This remarcable effort to engage audiences to the wide heritage of this catalan and universal artist comes even stronger by the recently published CloudGuide app, available for free as well for Android and iOS.

Do not  miss it!

Tàpies. An Artist’s Collection

Tàpies. An Artist’s Collection is the featured tour guide for this week.

As a historical journey over the artist work, this new CloudGuide tour guide is a highlight of the most relevant exhibits by Tàpies from the mid-1940s to the late 1980s. It is truly interesting the way this works become more and more significant while are facing other contemporary pieces by authors like Paul Klee, Joan Miró, Kurt Schwitters, Wassily Kandinsky, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, Jean Dubuffet, Willem de Kooning, Sam Francis and Robert Motherwell, among others.

Together with the previously unseen documentary by Maria Lluïsa Borràs, Antoni Tàpies, made in 1981, which builds an intense review the work of the artist, his artistic, literary and cultural references, and his historical and personal context, Fundació Tàpies is opening with this exhibition a window towards the knowledge of the big heritage of the great catalan genius Antoni Tàpies.

This week is full of interesting events to be highlighted in your agenda

If you are in Vienna, take a trip to TBA21 Augarten, where you will find  Ernesto Neto’s collaboration with the Amerindian artists and pajés (spiritual healers) of the Huni Kuin people. The exhibition unfolds as an experiment, establishing a zone of encounter with our “ancestral futures” and an investigation of the teachings of plants and the spiritual nature of objects. More info at http://tba21.org/augarten

If you are in Barcelona, it's a good chance to visit the MACBA Desires and Necessities, presenting 86 works including new acquisitions made in the last three years – over half of which are exhibited here for the first time – together with works already belonging to the Collection. Or maybe you are interested on architecture and modernisme: La Pedrera summer is a open secret. Activities, guided tours and a lovely terrace are just mind blowing!

And finally, just a  flash new that we are particularly  happy to spread: Ai Wei Wei will be in UK for his major exhibition at London's Royal Academy in September. It's so good to know!
