Description

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Argentine artist César Paternosto offer a dialogue about the artistic transformation of the rediscovery of paintings as objects in the last century.

Until the early 20th century, paintings were considered a window through which to see visible reality. However, this period saw the start of a transformation in the perception of paintings as objects. Paternosto reflects on this shift in painting based on works by Mondrian, Picasso, Gris, and others, shown here alongside his own works from the 1970s. He suggests a change in painting that made new approaches to composition possible. For example, the picture plane is decentralised and dispersal appears; frames become important; and the painting itself can become an object and multiply its expressive potential. Even the way the viewer approaches art is changed.The exhibition can be seen on the viewing balcony of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid.
