Res no s'atura (Nothing Stops)

©Fundació Suñol

This darkly-titled exhibition brings together a selection of works from the private collection Josep Suñol started in the 1970s and a selection of works from the public collection that began in the late 1990s, thanks to the Bienal de Arte Leandre Cristòfol. What is it that doesn't stop? The artist's expressive will? The dialogue of ideas? The exhibition of art despite financial crises and budget cuts?

One of the many interesting works in this exhibition is titled 'Paisaje y prótesis' ('Landscape and Prosthesis'), by Francesc Abad. And that's what this exhibition is about: art and prosthetics. The excuse for it is to have a dialogue between works that are clustered in such wide thematic groups as 'the human body', 'landscape', 'identity', etc. What no critic will admit, however, is that if the exhibition consists of good pieces by good artists, the result will be fascinating, as is the case here; and if you show mediocre pieces by mediocre artists, however interesting the title of the exhibition, the result will be mediocre.

To avoid an exhaustive list of the artists involved here, some highlights include Zush and Sergi Aguilar, Eulàlia Valldosera, Frederic Amat, Uslé, Julia Montilla, and the Rosado twins.
