25 years of the Salvat Collection

08/09/2021 - 19/09/2021
Can Framis, Barcelona

As André Malraux showed us in Le Musée imaginaire, every collector makes connections with works in their mind that are unbeknown to others. In their intimacy, they visualize the works they are adding to their collection while relating them to their visual imaginary and they serve to 'prefigure' the future of other works that the collector will acquire thereafter.

Collecting also means incorporating the experiences and history of artworks to the group of works. Each artwork has its own personal story, a flow of emotions that make it unique and distinctive among all the others. There is also the story of the collector, which emotionally connects an object they have coveted, sought out and found. It is a story of love for creation and respect for the heritage of an era.

A collection of the present is one that has a commitment to the art of its time. It is the representation of the zeitgeist, the spirit of the age, an artistic embodiment of the period in which the collector lived. We can say that this is the case of the Salvat Collection: the clear reflection of the art of an era.

The Peris family, owners of the Salvat Laboratories, started the collection in 1994 and the works create a narrative of the final years of the twentieth century to the present day. Twenty-five years and twenty-five works selected through the prism of complete independence that defines an era of Spanish art that has been shaped by the individualities of each artist, quite distinct from the artistic movements that led a hegemonic way of representing the art of the period.
