Documents of Action. Works from the Denney and Cordier Collections (1947–65)

This exhibition presents around sixty works from Les Abattoirs, Toulouse. Most of them are from the legacy of the Anthony Denney Collection and are complemented with drawings from the Daniel Cordier Collection. Both these collections are examples of the emergence of art informel in the late 1940s and its rapid commercialisation and assimilation to international modernism.

Montaner i Simon. A publishing house with a history

Editorial Montaner i Simon was one of the most important publishing houses in Catalonia and Spain during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first third of the twentieth. For 120 years it produced an extensive catalogue of high-quality publications with a wide distribution network. After it ceased production in 1981, most of its documentation and printing material was lost or dispersed. With the aim of recovering this legacy, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies has initiated a research project that includes all the contributions from people who were involved, in one way or another, with the history of this publishing house.
