The exhibition

The Reconfigured Landscape

From June 23, 2018 to September 15, 2019

The 1st floor of the Centro Botín will host a selection of works from the Botín Foundation collection with works by renowned national and international artists who started creating in the final decades of the 20th century. Names like Leonor Antunes, Lothar Baumgarten, Tacita Dean, Joan Jonas, Irene Kopelman, Julie Mehretu or Oriol Vilanova reveal the different ways of representing the world around them and offer visitors a historic perspective of the work of the Botín Foundation in the field of the visual arts in the past decade. Most of the pieces have never been exhibited before.

This exhibition includes works by artists who have directed some of the Botín Foundation’s Plastic Arts workshops in Santander, co-existing with other beneficiaries of the Grant programme, younger creators who are considered to be key figures of their generation, such as João Onofre, Sara Ramo or Ignacio Uriarte.

“This generational mix is an important dynamic of the collection and offers an interesting perspective on 21st century artistic practice, highlighting the formal freedom that the creators have been consolidating over the past fifty years”, assures Benjamin Weil, artistic director of the Centro Botín and curator of this exhibition.

In addition to painting, drawing and sculpture, The Reconfigured Landscape  includes videos and multimedia facilities, an artistic modality that represents the avant-garde of artistic research in recent decades.

“We can consider this exhibition to be a journey through the artistic landscape of these past years in which the artists have looked for different ways of representing the world around them”, highlights Weil.
