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.

A Catalan painter who spent his childhood in Paris as a result of the Spanish Civil War. In 1940 he returns to Barcelona and seven years later he travels to the USA, where he meets Salvador Dalí and discovers his desire to become and artist. He spends the following years refining his focus, gets to know the Dau al Set group, and becomes interested in Bauhaus and Cézanne’s artwork. In the early fifties, he meets Duchamp in Cadaqués, which leads him to take on a new artistic language. Between 1966 and 1972, he works on a series of representations of In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust.

Jordi Martoranno
Girona, 1965

Jordi Martoranno trained at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Universitat de Barcelona, and has worked on artistic residencies in several countries. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, his artwork reflected an interest in the relationships and connections that human beings have with nature and the cosmos. He is attentive to both ancient and contemporary thinkers, and his work is currently focused on semiotic anthropology in order to research, through painting, how and from where symbols are created, and their formal and conceptual evolution in our culture.
