MADRID.- The Lázaro Galdiano Museum has inaugurated the exposition “Entre Tiempos…Works from the Jozami Collection” at the Lázaro Galdiano Museum, which will remain open until May 12th. The exhibit supposes an intervention of the Jozami Collection, which is being displayed for the first time in Europe, into the framework of another great collection, built by Don José Lázaro.

Curated by Diana B. Wechsler, the exhibition is elaborated as an intervention, interference and dialogue between the Jozami Collection and that of the Lázaro Galdiano Museum. It invites the spectator to rediscover the space, as if all of the works formed part of one great collection of contemporary art.

Concepts and dialogues between contemporary art pieces from different pasts, with a starting point based on the passion for collecting – shared by Aníbal Jozami and José Lázaro Galdiano- generate conversations and ideas that are adjusted and readjusted, between the exhibition of the Museum pieces and the integration of a selection of 90 pieces, from over 1000 that comprise the Jozami Collection, with works dating from the end of the 19th century to present day. The peculiarity of this collection, marked by passion and desire, is the great political commitment and the social sensibility that enlivens it.

Entre Tiempos… takes on two distinct formats at the Lázaro Galdiano Museum: at the Espańa Moderna building , " Figuration and its limits in the art of the River Plate" shows a significant group of figurative works from the Southern Cone from the Jozami Collection with pieces by Antonio Berni (1901-1966) , Luis Felipe Noé (1933 ), Luis Seoane ( 1910-1979 ) , Liliana Porter ( 1941 ), Joaquín Torres García ( 1874-1949 ), Pedro Figari ( 1861-1938 ) , Xul Solar ( 1887 - 1963 ) and Gabriela Sacco (1956 ), while in the opulent rooms of the Museum , " Presencias, from the Jozami Collection " videos and photographs provide a personal and thematic dialogue between the pieces of the Lázaro Galdiano Collection and those of Christian Boltanski (1944 ) , Vik Muniz (1961 ) , Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) , Leandro Elrich (1973 ) and Tunga (1952 ) among others.

Entre Tiempos… shows, for example, the parallelism between Entering Noah's Ark by Jan Brueghel the Younger, and the contemporary characters that Estanislao Florido (1977) introduces into the snowy landscapes of his pictorial animation, inspired by the work of Brueghel. The visitations and the iconography of 15th century Spanish art merge with the photograph of Marcos López (1958) and the video of Ana Gallardo (1958). The visual impact of the Aquelarre by Francisco de Goya is proximate in time to the photograph by Dias& Riedweg (Mauricio Dias, 1964 and Walter Riedweg, 1955), Funk Staden.

Entre Tiempos… It is also a journey through the ambiguity of images and an invitation to discover different uses for the rooms of the Lázaro Galdiano Museum. Contemporary images, like those of Nicole Tran Ba Vang (1963) or the video by Daniel Toledo (1981), are integrated between textile samples that span from the 13th to the 19th centuries. The sound of broken dishes from the video by Gabriela Golder (1971) invades the visit to room of the Museum where pottery, china, glass and silverware sets are displayed.

The Jozami collection was born nearly 40 years ago in Buenos Aires, on the initiative of Aníbal Yazbeck Jozami, sociologist, entrepreneur and academic, dedicated to foreign trade and international relations. It has been a long aesthetic search, which was enriched thanks to his wife, the journalist Marlise Ilhesca. This unique exhibition is meant to recognize the work of these prestigious Latin American and international art collectors who have just recently been integrated into the patronage of the Queen Sofia Museum Foundation.

On the occasion of the exhibition the Jozami Collection has published a catalogue, and the Lázaro Galdiano Foundation has organized numerous activities such as workshops for children and families as well as several guided tours.

With this international exhibit of the Jozami Collection, The Lázaro Galdiano Foundation continues its vocation for creating a space for reflection, dialogue and the diffusion of art collection.
