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.

Tania Font

Trained in several disciplines such as painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture and jewellery, Tania Font has worked on the scenography for many projects in theatre and television, as well as creating hyper-realist scientific sculptures for museums alongside the biologist Ramon López. Her own work as an artist, mainly sculpture and painting, is notable for the presence of the human figure, with special attention given to women. By seeking to explain subjective experiences, her work reflects upon the construction and deconstruction of the feminine subject, as well as the difficult relationship women have with the word: a long history of silences.

Joan Fontcuberta

The sign that identifies his artwork is a concept: doubt. Photography that deals with uncertainty. He works with the world of appearances to question truths that no one refutes. He documents the framework, the anecdotal, to make people believe that something has happened, even though it did not occur. He plays with ambiguity through the mechanism of appropriation that provokes reflections about authorship. He only needs to stage a framework of suitable influences (press, institutions such as the museum, advertising...) to emphasize that sometimes the readings are erroneous. As well as being an artist, Joan Fontcuberta is a critic, teacher, exhibition curator and author who founded Photovision magazine. His works have been exhibited in international museums such as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Art Institute in Chicago.
