SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA.- To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the CGAC presents an exhibit titled 93 taking us back to the year when it opened its doors to the public, back in the early nineties.

Over the last twenty years, the museum designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira played an important role in the dissemination, preservation and study of contemporary art.

93 is an exhibition that lets the chronological scope define its essential matrix: like a slice of history, works by more than one hundred local and foreign artists working in various media and formats will be presented. Beyond the time period, the exhibition showcases almost exclusively works from private and institutional collections in Spain, Portugal and France, reflecting the art scene in both private and institutional collections that—particularly in the Iberian—began its path after the normalisation of the political system with the advent of the respective democracies.

At the beginning of the nineties, we are able to discern a very deep change in methods of cultural production, precisely because the art system undergoes a significant and ongoing process of professionalisation. It is also a time when artists live on the dregs of the euphoria of the eighties, with a greater critical awareness of economic, political and social aspects arising not only from the deep market crisis at the end of the previous decade, but also due to the emergence of concerns and studies related to gender. Likewise, the disengagement of art with regards to the market made it possible to experiment more freely with other visual languages such as photography or video, which then became consolidated as regular museum practices.

Thus, 93 combines not only the emerging presences in different national contexts, but also artists we believe are paradigms for that new generation, on a horizontal timeline that will allow the viewer a precise trip through time.
