CONTEMPORARY ART - ARTISTS

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.

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.
