Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo
Meadows Museum, Dallas, TX
9 October 2016 – 19 January 2017
Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo is the first exhibition in America to present a comprehensive survey of Modern Art in Spain from the Belle Époque through the Kennedy years. The rich and diverse art created in Spain during this period is largely unknown in the U.S. due to the turmoil that took place in Spain at this time. Juxtaposing the modern art collection of the Meadows Museum with works from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo (ACAC) in the Museo Patio Herreriano of Valladolid, this exhibition brings together more than 90 paintings, sculptures and works on paper to demonstrate the most important aspects of Spanish modern art and shed light on the global connection between Spanish art and other international modern art movements.
