BARCELONA.- The Fundació Suñol has put together an exhibition of 27 pieces from the Josep Suñol Collection to help expand visitors’ knowledge of 20th-century art. It comprises work by 18 artists who played a key role in the field of visual arts in recent years, marked by a shift away from previous conventions of representation.

The 27 pieces – which date from 1924 to 1998 – reflect the visions of 18 artists who use different interpretations, intensities and media to reveal their inner thoughts and forms of expression and give us an insight into the collector’s vision and decision to include them in his collection.

This exhibition does not follow a chronological or thematic approach, but aims to capture the emotion of emblematic pieces by artists whose work answers not to reason, but is driven by a passion to create art and reveal the construction of a world of shapes with their own meaning open to the eyes of others.

The exhibition spans eight decades of the 20th century, but features a large number of pieces from the 1970s and 1980s, when Josep Suñol acquired the bulk of his collection. It portrays a complex period rich in ideas ranging from the avant-garde to the final creations from the close of the last century.

These 27 works of art take the form of painting, sculpture and photography and include pop art, the groundbreaking forms of the 1960s, the purest abstraction, material or organic pieces – some calm, others perturbing, but all offering a succinct overview of the transformation of the artistic sphere in the 20th century.

The Fundació Suñol is a private, non-profit making organisation which has put Josep Suñol’s contemporary art collection on display to the public, and at the same time is running a project which encourages the production and diffusion of avant-garde art.

The Foundation has a two-pronged approach. Firstly it aims to show the entire collection on an on-going basis but presented in different formats, from series that are chronological to others where dialogues and interactions occur between the different pieces in the collection.
