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.


Miquel Ventura Monsó
Barcelona, 1973

Albert Vergés
Tortosa, Tarragona, 1967

Josep Vernis
Vic, Barcelona, 1940

Vicenç Viaplana
Granollers, Barcelona, 1955

Stratified acrylic painting, the result of a meticulous study where nothing is left to chance. Obsessed with making ethereal and immaterial things visible, he captures the effects of light and creates vaporous shadows. Each plastic artwork is a new exploration that holds onto experience and sensitivity in order to pose questions on the certainty of our perceptions. He distorts reality, hides objects and blurs the images to create a multiplicity of messages that wander between abstraction and figuration.

Albert Vidal
Barcelona, 1969

Lluís Vidal
Barcelona, 1970

Mayte Vieta
Blanes, Girona, 1971

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.

Barcelona, 1927 - 2006

Joan Vilacasas
Sabadell, Barcelona, 1920 - Barcelona, 2007

Prolific artist who is considered to be one of the most notable Catalan abstract painters of the fifties. From his post-impressionist beginnings imbued with a certain Fauvism, he evolves towards a geometric abstraction influenced by Léger. From 1957 onwards, drawing inspiration from Tachism, he focused on “planimetries”, images composed of lines and spatial configurations that make the material and disintegrating gesture his most characteristic feature. His works are included in the institutional collections at the MACBA, Tate Gallery and Fundación Juan March, among others.
