As announced in April 2019, the Fundació Vila Casas and the Ajuntament de Vila-seca have signed a four-year collaboration agreement to convert Vila-seca Castle into a contemporary art exhibition space.

Entitled Antoni Tàpies. La resistència del signe (Resistance of the Sign), the Fundació Vila Casas presents a great exhibition of one of the most widely and internationally renowned Catalan artists in the second half of the twentieth century. Antoni Tàpies, a painter, sculptor, engraver and art theorist, is one of the most important representatives of European Informalism, the artistic movement that tried to respond to the spiritual crisis across Europe after the Second World War.

The exhibition includes a set of sixty-two engravings made in Joan Roma’s workshop in the years 1989 to 1993. They are bon à tirer, in other words, the proofs ready to be used as the template for printing. Following the artwork in the exhibition – which also includes the sculpture Campana (Bell), a piece that demonstrates the contemplative and transcendental aesthetic used by the artist to delve into the properties of the material – we enter into the world of engraving, a process which makes it possible to print an image onto paper using a mainly metallic plate (of copper, zinc, iron etc.) upon which a design has previously been cut.

 

The exhibition is on at the Castell de Vila-seca until 30th January 2021.
