This is the first complete analysis of the sculptures and objects created by Tapies, encompassing the whole of his artistic production for almost five decades. The exhibition is conceived as a chronological analysis of Tapies' 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. The show is curated by Alvaro Rodriguez Fominaya (Las Palmas of Gran Canaria, 1968), an internationally renowned curator of exhibitions on contemporary art. Currently a curator at New York's Guggenheim Museum, from 2008-2011, he served as Executive Director-Curator of the Para/Site Art Space, the main independent center for contemporary art in Hong Kong, and worked for more than six years at the Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno (CAAM) in Spain, where he was Acting Director from 2006-07.
