Entre/Between is a touring exhibition organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, chief curator/associate director.
A pioneer in the fields of conceptual and media art, Antoni Muntadas’s rigorous practice includes performance, video, photography, multimedia installations, publications, Web-based projects, and public art. Muntadas: Entre/Between, a survey exhibition of the artist’s more than forty-year career, includes a selection of key works that manifest his ongoing exploration of the important political and social issues of our time.
Incorporating in-depth research and astute readings of cultural situations, his incisive works have addressed ideas such as the relationship between public and private, the role of the media in transmitting ideas and information, and the complex dynamics of architecture and other social frameworks. From his early works of the 1970s that utilized the senses and his 1981 manifesto that demanded audiences consider “What are we looking at?” to his ongoing series On Translation, which wrestles with cultural interpretation, Muntadas has created a vast body of work that investigates the visible and invisible systems of power in a society dominated by the spectacles of mass media, hyper consumption, and constantly evolving technologies.
Muntadas: Entre/Between is organized into nine constellations of thematically linked works from different moments of the artist’s career and traces the diverse subjects that have occupied his interest for four decades.
