After 68, Art and artistic practices in the Basque Country 1968-2018
The new exhibition of the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum covers Basque art from the year 68
The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum opens on November 7 the exhibition "After 68, Art and artistic practices in the Basque Country 1968-2018". With a selection of almost 150 works, including works of painting, sculpture, photography and video art, the exhibition covers Basque art from the emblematic year 68, to the present.
Around 100 artists of different generations and movements share space in this exhibition, which allows us to know the forms of modernization of art carried out in the context of the Basque Country during the turn of the century, as well as the transcendence that these artists have had in the national and international panorama.
The exhibition is made up of works belonging to the Museum of Fine Arts collection itself, together with pieces borrowed from other museums and private collections such as the Reina Sofia National Art Museum, ARTIUM, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona or the Kunstmuseum Basel.
The exhibition will occupy the entire modern building of the museum and chronologically visit this period, not only through the works described above, but also through archival materials such as books, writings and audiovisual materials. Curated by Miriam Alzuri, Begoña González and Miguel Zugaza, the exhibition will be completed with music, film and conference cycles, as well as an extensive educational program.
