The Fundaciķ presents a new selection of works by Antoni Tāpies belonging to the fonds of the Collection. The show, which this time is centred in Space A, includes different creative periods of the artist from the 1940s to the present, and illustrates the development of typologies, techniques and materials used by Tāpies.
‘Open Source Prototypes’ is a working network developed within the platform of Combined Arts at the Fundaciķ Antoni Tāpies. It involves different groups, organisations and education centres working together in research projects and interventions in contemporary artistic and cultural practices.
The Fundaciķ Antoni Tāpies develops the project Combined Arts (A Place for Education, Exhibition and Research), which will give visitors access to the institution’s documentation through a physical space in the building and via a platform on the web. The Fundaciķ aims to preserve and disseminate all the museum’s relevant documents and material, as well as its educational resources, in order to facilitate research and experimentation into contemporary art and the work of Antoni Tāpies.
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 Fundaciķ Antoni Tāpies 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.
