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.

DISCIPLINE:  
Francisco Farreras
Barcelona, 1927




Naxo Farreras
Barcelona, 1951

Naxo Farreras

A modeller and sculptor trained in Paris, Milan and Barcelona; he has created one of the most suggestive yet least known sculptural careers in the last half century. He mainly works with minerals such as marble and alabaster, though he has also worked with wood. His first exhibition was in 1976 at the Galeria Cadaqués, but he did not begin signing his work in the name he currently uses until 1991. In his most recent production, Farreras empties out the inner spaces of the pieces he works on, allowing light to pass through; hence referring to them ‘cathedrals’.

Ángel Ferrant
Madrid, 1890 - Madrid, 1961

Ángel Ferrant

Àngel Ferrant trained at the Fine Arts School in Madrid, his city of birth, and is considered to be one of the greatest exponents of Spanish avant-garde sculpture. His first contact with new artistic trends occurred in Paris in 1913. Later, in 1920, he moves to live in Barcelona, where he builds an intense lifelong relationship with the art scene and also develops a great pedagogical work at La Llotja, up until 1934 when he returns to Madrid. Although he began in figurative painting, his work quickly evolved towards a surrealist-influenced sculpture, closely related to the objet trouvé style. It was notable for a great interest in movement and ended up becoming a point of reference for kinetic art.
