The collection

The collection is the point of convergence where the plural vision of the collector Antoni Vila Casas meets contemporary art. It is a map of movements and decisions to accept particular works that embrace different ideologies and creative languages. Encompassing the period between the 1960’s and the present, with a few previous exceptions, a number of currents of pictorial and sculptural creation in Catalonia are displayed. Only the photography collection is within an international framework.

Carma Casulá
Barcelona, 1966

Visual artist and photographer, with a PhD in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid and higher studies in photography from Milan and New York. Her artistic projects focus on the anthropization of the territory, the environment, sustainability and new imaginaries of the landscape. She also carries out more documentary-style work, in which she collaborates with architects and landscape artists in the interpretation and treatment of the territory. Her artwork highlights the transformation of landscapes caused by the modernization of society, and explores in-depth an interpretation of our landscape as a reflection of our culture. She has participated in cultural projects and exhibitions with photography and installations, both at national and international level, such as at the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, USA) in 1994, and at Festival Revela’t 2023 with the exhibition Piel Ibérica y TransEuropeas, among many others.

Agustí Centelles
Grau de València, 1909 - Barcelona, 1985

The work of Agustí Centelles, a central figure in Spanish photojournalism, provides an indispensable testimony to the Spanish civil war; an episode that had a resounding effect on Spanish society and art that still resonates today. The framing, view points and depth of his photographs, taken with a Leica camera, freeze time while exuding modernity. Poetically charged works of epic force and dramatic intensity that, far from being merely anecdotal, present an unadorned reality displaying great discursive potential. Barred from practising photojournalism by Franco’s regime, he worked in publicity photography on his return from exile in 1944. He was awarded the National Photography prize two years before his death. Photos: Spain. Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. Historical Memory Documentation Centre. Agustí Centelles i Ossó archive.
