Project Description

Asia and contemporary art in Spain

Juan March Foundation has relied on 93 Metros to document an oral History project entitled “Asia and contemporary art in Spain”, which accompanies one of its most innovative and ambitious exhibitions to date. ‘The Asia principle. China, Japan and India and contemporary art in Spain (1957-2017)’ makes visible the influence that these three cultures have had in the art of the second half of the twentieth century in our country.

For a year and a half, 93 Metros has accompanied a specialized team of the Juan March Foundation to conduct 13 interviews with the most important exponents of Spanish Contemporary Art: Alfonso Albacete, Frederic Amat, José Manuel Ballester, Miquel Barceló, José Manuel Broto, Marta Cárdenas, Francisco Farreras, Luis Feito, Joan Gardy Artigas, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, José María Sicilia, Juan Uslé and José María Yturralde.

The interviews have taken place in their respective homes, workshops and studies, constituting an exclusive, unique and inspiring testimony. The interviews make up a documentary that can be seen in a cycle scheduled in parallel to the exhibition itself and also in a web portal created for this purpose.
