Contemporary Cartographies at the CaixaForum Barcelona

Contemporary Cartographies. Drawing Thought

exhibition at the CaixaForum Barcelona from July 25 till October 28

The aim of Contemporary Cartographies. Drawing Thought, an exhibition that seeks to draw a map formed by cartographies created by twentieth- and twenty-first century artists, is to invite the visitor to question both the systems of representation that we use and the ideas that underpin them.

The exhibition, organised and produced by ”la Caixa” Foundation, is comprises more than 140 works in a wide range of formats – from maps and drawings to video installations and digital art – on loan from the collections of several major contemporary art galleries. The artists represented include such essential figures as Salvador Dalí, Paul Klee, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Klein, Gordon Matta-Clark, Richard Hamilton, Mona Hatoum and Richard Long, shoulder-to-shoulder with a roster of contemporary artists, including Art & Language, Artur Barrio, Carolee Schneemann, Ana Mendieta, Erick Beltrán, On Kawara, Alighiero Boetti, Thomas Hirschhorn and Francis Alÿs, amongst others. Finally, the exhibition is completed by a series of revealing documents drawn up by experts from other fields, such as Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Lewis Carroll and Carl Gustav Jung.

Contemporary Cartographies. Drawing Thought. Organised and produced by: ”la Caixa” Foundation. Dates: 25 July – 28 October 2012. Place: CaixaForum Barcelona (Av. de Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 6-8). Curator: Helena Tatay.
