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:  
Lluís Vidal
Barcelona, 1970




Mayte Vieta
Blanes, Girona, 1971

Mayte Vieta

Mayte Vieta started working with sculpture but in the last few years has centred on a photographic discourse which she uses as a pretext to highlight the ambivalence of the visible.  Her images taken from real life sequences create in her work certain dichotomies associated with postmodernity: absence-presence, life-death, natural-artificial, reflections of ourselves. The artist distances herself from the classical concept of photography by researching, manipulating and transforming her material so as to, in her words, “capture the instant” and establish a dialogue between space and time. Her work aims to introduce the viewer to a multitude of places freighted with atmospheric force, dreamt spaces endowed with symbology and sensibility.

Guillem Viladot

A pharmacist by training and family tradition, he gained recognition for his writing, visual poetry and objectual and ready-made creations. He created an independent oeuvre in these disciplines at the margins of the artistic and literary circles at the time. In the nineties, he opened the “Lo Pardal” complex in Agramunt, which houses the Fundació Privada Guillem Viladot today, dedicated to preserving his memory and legacy.
