Description

Around 150 paintings and drawings from the American artist Lee Lozano are on exhibition at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid. ‘Force the Machine’ is the first retrospective held in Spain from an artist who questioned all the social structures imposed in the 60s.

Despite concentrating his work in a creative period of only 12 years –from 1960 to 1972–, Lozano produced very provocative pieces, conveying a free and easy spirit of protest, typical of the civil and peace movements of this decade. Fragmented bodies, simple work tools transformed into oversized sexual organs and industrial objects are a common feature in most of Lozano's creations. 1964 marked a turning point in his work, both in terms of format and colour. In around 1965 he turned to abstraction and minimalism, focusing on “energy paintings”, with intersections of geometrical planes generating optical effects.
