MUSAC presents four new shows on 23 June. Feminist Genealogies in Spanish Art: 1960–2010 proposes, through 150 works by more than 80 artists, a rereading of Spain’s recent art history from new perspectives, stemming from the need to restore the erased memory of feminist knowledge and practices. The Laboratorio 987 exhibition space will host Castillete. Mining Tableau (Landscape in Motion I) by Carme Nogueira, the second show of the Form and Meaning exhibition series, curated by Leire Vergara. MUSAC’s showcases present Erreakzioa – Reacción, Images of a Project between Art and Feminism, an art intervention by feminist art collective Erreakzioa-Reacción (Estibaliz Sadaba and Azucena Vieites). MUSAC’s Annex Space hosts The Methodology of the Project, an exhibition of artistic projects directed by Antoni Muntadas in the workshop under the same title that took place in MUSAC in January and June 2012.

Curators:
Juan Vicente Aliaga and Patricia Mayayo

Feminist Genealogies in Spanish Art: 1960-2010 is a show conceived to emphasize the importance that the discourses on gender and sexual identity have had in Spanish art production since the 1960s. Through more than 150 works by 80 artists, the exhibition curated by Juan Vicente Aliaga and Patricia Mayayo proposes a rereading of Spain’s recent art history from new perspectives. The exhibition stems from the need to restore the erased memory of feminist knowledge, practices and genealogies: it is important to recover and make visible the work of artists (some men, but especially women) who were unfairly shunned or forgotten; but it is even more important to reread the recent history of Spanish art from a different stance, with other keys and viewpoints. Not only has the legacy of feminism been underestimated in the most traditional historiography, but also in many of the accounts of art creation in Spain that are supposed to be more groundbreaking or renovating.

Laboratorio 987: Carme Nogueira. Castillete. Mining Tableau (Landscape in Motion I)
Form and Meaning exhibition series.
Until 13 January 2013

Curator: Leire Vergara

MUSAC’s Laboratorio 987 features the exhibition Castillete, Mining Tableau (Landscape in Motion I) by Carme Nogueira, within the Form and Meaning exhibition series. The show is the result of an investigation carried out by the artist in Sabero, a mining town in León, into the different layers of meaning (materials, stories, records…) involved in the formation of the idea of landscape in a specific place. By selecting a specific location, the artist directs her attention at the sedimentation processes that took place in that location with the intention of accessing the accumulation, rectification, and deposit of diverse materials, experiences, and stories that are hidden under the surface and that demonstrate the impossibility of subjecting the representation of landscape to a unitary cartography.

The Form and Meaning exhibition series, curated by Leire Vergara, is structured around three monographic exhibitions by the artists Hiwa K and Carme Nogueira Alejandra Riera, and a group project by the Leon-based artists Nilo Gallego, Silvia Zayas, and Chus Domínguez. Read more about the project.
