PARIS.- Jeu de Paume organizes a major exhibition by the internationally recognized artist Muntadas (Barcelona, 1942), one of the early practitioners of conceptual and media art.

Muntadas studied industrial engineering in Barcelona and entered the art world through painting. Nevertheless, in the early seventies he developed an interest for multimedia art and moved to New York, where he currently lives and works.

He maintains an intense teaching activity and his work is present in some of the most important collections in the world: the Museum of Modern Art – MoMA (New York), the Centre Georges Pompidou (París), Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid), Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona – MACBA (Barcelona) or Museo de Arte Contemporânea (São Paulo).

Furthermore, he has appeared in some of the most prominent international art festivals: Documenta VI (1977) and X (1997), the Venice Biennale (1976 and 2005) or the São Paulo Biennale (1981), amongst others. In 2009 he was granted the Velázquez Prize for Visual Arts.

The show “entre/Between” is comprised of 9 thematic constellations. “entre/Between” surveys his prolific career, from the seventies to present days. His art practice spans four decades, in which Muntadas has utilized actions, video, photography, multi-media installations, publications, public art, the internet, radio and other media to address key political and social issues of our time.

Incorporating in-depth research and astute readings of cultural situations, his incisive works have addressed ideas such as the relationship between public and private, the flows of information along the media landscape, and the inherent power of architecture and other social frameworks.

From the early works of the 1970s that utilized the subsenses, to his 1981 manifesto demanding that audiences consider “What are we looking at?,” to his ongoing series On Translation that wrestles with cultural interpretation, Muntadas has created a vast body of work that frames a discourse on the visible and invisible systems of power in a society dominated by the spectacles of mass media, hyper consumption and ever-advancing technologies.

The exhibition is comprised of nine thematic constellations that revolve around conceptions of space, a structure that parallels Muntadas’ working method to first investigate and situate the location/site/context surrounding of any given project. Each thematic section of the exhibition will locate Muntadas’ work within a spatial configuration, incorporating both early and recent works. Presented on the first floor of the Jeu de Paume, the exhibition continues in the auditorium with the projection of Between the Frames, Muntadas’ film on the art scene.
