|.: EXHIBITIONS_ABSTRACTION AND MOTION|
This wide-ranging exhibition attempts to conjugate these two major achievements and to study a characteristic phenomenon, abstraction and movement, which has had three historical moments of strength: the 1920s and 30s; the 60s and 70s; and the present day (more or less the last ten years), the latter two periods being the ones that are addressed here.
To do this we follow in the wake of at least four previous exhibitions that, from different angles and using different approaches, have broached the phenomenon under consideration: Sons et lumières (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2004-2005), Visual Music (Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, and MoCA, Los Angeles, 2005), Summer of Love (Tate Liverpool, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, and Kunsthalle Wien, 2005-2006) and Light Art from Artificial Light (ZKM, Karlsruhe, 2006).
The exhibition project itself is divided into two shows, which are superimposed one on top of the other. Firstly, the CAAC collection in terms of its axis to do with pictorial abstraction and beyond. Secondly, a temporary exhibition centering on abstraction in movement. The two share the same space, alternating and interrelating with each other, and on other occasions by setting up oppositions. These are two exhibitions, brought together in a single conceptual and spatial design.
