Tàpies. Woods, Papers, Cardboards and Collages
The title of the exhibition comes from a book by Joan Teixidor published in 1964, in the context of an exhibition of cardboards, papers, wood works and collages by Antoni Tàpies, that took place at the Sala Gaspar, Barcelona. Being at the centre of Tàpies artistic and philosophical way of thinking, getting to know this facet of his work will help us understand his oeuvre as a whole. Featuring around thirty drawings and wood works from the 1960s and 70s belonging to the Fundació’s Collection, together with some national and international loans, the aim of the exhibition is to show works that have been rarely seen and remain mostly unknown to this day.
