International artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Kandinsky, Picasso, Louise Bourgeois, Helena Almeida or Ai Weiwei are part of a journey that reflects Helga de Alvear’s passion for the art of our present.

‘Patterns’ brings together a series of arworks that aproach the patterns imposed by the capitalist system, not only from an economic point of view, but also from a social, aesthetic and even philosophical perspective.

An exhibition that pays tribute to the legacy of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century 100 years after his birth, offering new approaches to his multifaceted figure.

Image and (Con)Text: S.M.S.

We begin the cycle of exhibitions with the first issue of the magazine S.M.S. A magazine created in 1968 in Manhattan as a collaborative space for artists, characterised by the heterogeneity of the artistic manifestations it contains, and which vindicated the commodification of art.

From march 25, 2021

More than Space

The exhibition aims tto reflect on how artists have reproduced, interpreted, imagined, denied, or deconstructed the space. Not only from a formal point of view, but also bringing into play other social, political, economic, and emotional implications attached to the systems of representation, waiting for the spectator’s sensory cognition to reactivate them.
