Dear Art Lovers,

We are glad to invite you to a great exhibition in Fundación Juan March.

The visit will be guided and commented by one the Curator of the exhibition, Matilde Arias.

The Asia Principle China, Japan and India & contemporary art in Spain ( Protected content )

The exhibition The Asia Principle. China, Japan, India and Contemporary Art in Spain ( Protected content ) aims to draw attention to the influence of these three cultures on art in the second half of the 20th century in Spain, an influence notably visible in the work of numerous artists of the time but equally little explored. The exhibition's title makes use of the concept of a chemical "principle", according to which an active element, either alone or with others, "reacts" when it is mixed or made.
The exhibition focuses on the period between the generation of Spanish abstract artists of the Protected content and that of the artists born around the mid Protected content , the time when the Museo de Arte Abstracto Español in Cuenca Protected content founded by Fernando Zóbel, a key figure for understanding this exhibition's discourse. There are, however, earlier examples, such as that of the ceramicist Josep Llorens Artigas, who in the Protected content began to produce works of striking simplicity, and that of Joan Miró, who worked with Llorens Artigas from the mid Protected content on creations that combined ceramics and painting.

Duration of the Visit : one hour

After our visit, a lunch might be taken close to the event. More details will be given in the next weeks.

Kind regards,
