MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (León, Spain), hosts four new shows in the autumn of 2015. To See—To Reveal. Uses and Representations of the Unexplainable is a group exhibition conceived to uncover, analyse and interconnect some of the most extreme manifestations of popular religiosity through the uses of the image and their depictions in contemporary art. Shadows of the Wind is a solo show devoted to the 1999 Spanish National Photography Prize Winner Alberto García-Alix. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. About Painting in the MUSAC Collection is an exhibition featuring works from the MUSAC Collection that revisits the strategies adopted by contemporary painting as a result of the experimentation developed in its historical evolution. Last but not least, the Showcase Project hosts TYIN tegnestue: In Detail, an installation by Norwegian architecture cooperative TYIN tegnestue, winner of the 2012 European Prize for Architecture.

To See—To Reveal. Uses and Representations of the Unexplainable is a group exhibition conceived to uncover, analyse and interconnect some of the most extreme manifestations of popular religiosity (like mystical raptures, apparitional and visionary phenomena, phantasmagoria, spiritualism and trances) through the uses of the image and their depictions in contemporary art. To See—To Reveal draws from the Spanish region of Castile and León’s history and traditions to address religious imaginary constructed outside the confines of officialdom. Additionally, the works on display comment on the rise of new spiritual movements and forms of religiosity worldwide and their far-reaching social and political implications.


Alberto García-Alix. Shadows of the Wind
Curator: Nicolás Combarro
 3 October 2015–31 January 2016
Shadows of the Wind is a specific project by the Spanish photographer Alberto García-Alix (León, Spain, 1956) for MUSAC. The show builds a bridge between past and present in the artist’s career, following the narrative thread of two publications produced by García-Alix in 1993, Bikers and Los malheridos, los bien amados, los traidores [The wounded, the beloved, the traitors]. These works sum up two of the artist’s leitmotifs: motorbikes and portraits, two key ways in which he approaches reality through photography. The exhibition traces the progression in his treatment of these two elementary bodies of work, that reveal the passage of time and the evolution of forms towards more abstract and allegorical uses of images.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. About Painting in the MUSAC Collection is a group show revisiting the strategies adopted by contemporary painting as a result of the experimentation developed in its historical and adaptative evolution, as well as the expansion of its painterly “essence” to other art disciplines.

TYIN tegnestue: In Detail at the Showcase Project
A project by TYIN tegnestue Architects
Curator: Kristine Guzmán
19 September 2015–7 February 2016

TYIN tegnestue: In Detail is an exhibition by TYIN tegnestue Architects for MUSAC’s Showcase Project, on the occasion of the publication of the fourth volume of the MUSAC AA Art and Architecture Collection, devoted to this Norwegian architecture cooperative, winner of the 2012 European Prize for Architecture. Created in 2008 by Andreas G. Gjertsen and Yashar Hanstad, TYIN tegnestue Architects centre on a philosophy of an architecture of necessity. They have mainly completed work in the humanitarian field in Asia and Africa, but their core thinking lies in the adaption of situations, and this can be implemented practically anywhere in the world.
