LONDON. Antoni Tápies "1993 - 2011 works" Timothy Taylor Gallery

7 March – 13 April 2013


Timothy Taylor Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition by the late Catalan artist,Antoni Tàpies (1923-2012), featuring 13 major paintings created between 1993 and 2011, obtained directly from the estate of the artist.Tàpies was a towering presence in 20th century art, coming to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s, exhibiting regularly in the artistic crucibles of New York, Paris and Barcelona alongside peers such as Alberto Burri, Joseph Beuys, Yves Klein and Robert Rauschenberg. Tàpies pioneered the use of sand or earth and other unusual materials in his paintings, creating a form of alchemical magic that connects the base matter of life and the body with the unseen and the metaphysical realm. Tàpiesʼ work is included in numerous public and private collections internationally including Tate, UK; MoMA, New York; Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome;Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.He represented Spain in the 45th Venice Biennale in 1993 and has exhibited extensively; notably with retrospectives at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (1962 and 1995); dOCUMENTA, (1964); Musée dʼart moderne de la ville de Paris (1973); Nationalgalerie, Berlin (1974); Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, which later traveled to Chicago, San Antonio, Iowa, and Montreal (1977); and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (1990). An exhibition, Tàpies, the eye of the artist, curated by Axel Vervoordt, Daniela Ferreti, Natasha Hébert and Toni Tàpies will open in May 2013 at the Palazzo Fortuny, Venice to coincide with the Venice Biennale. A major retrospective exhibition Tàpies: From Within, curated by Vicente Todoli will be shown at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies and Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, from June until October 2013.
