March - April 2016

"Informalisms" is the title of the new exhibition that is on show in our rooms during the months of March and April. This exhibition, built with a selection of works from the gallery’s collection, is centred around the artistic tendency that Michel Tapié immortalized with the text 'Un art autre ' which led to the artistic movement known as Informalism. Far from being a tidy and uniform trend, Informalism was multifaceted and extremely rich in artistic demonstrations and largely influenced the agenda of European art after the tragic World War II. In order to analyse this momentous and fruitful time and show some of the varied plastic resources that define Informalist Art, we have selected around twenty works by different artists, most of them created during the 1960s.
