Portugal - Spain Matosinhos wins Modern Art Centre Gerardo Rueda

5 years ago

The Port area was part of many trips Gerardo Rueda, Spanish artist who died in 1996, to our country. Friend of Fernando Pernes, the first artistic director of the Serralves Foundation, were many times when the two were in town and left to spend hours talking about ... art, of course. This is a sentimental attachment to the most prominent abstract artists of contemporary art of the twentieth century that is the genesis of the creation of the Modern Art Centre (MAC) Gerardo Rueda, who occupies, since last week, the former Nave Gallery (with a basement approximately 4000 m2 located in the building of the municipality), the result of an agreement with the Foundation Gerardo Rueda, with a duration of three years renewable. "For me it is an eternal moment.
Portugal is a country that loved my father, "says Jose Luis Jimenez Rueda, son of the artist and president of the Foundation.
The CAM has a collection of 200 works of the twentieth century removed from around 5000 to form the spoil of the Spanish artist. Among them is an anthology show (16 works) several times Rueda, a temporary exhibition de Noronha da Costa (30 works under the title The Transformation of the image) and more than one hundred works from the collection of the artist which highlights Millares, Pablo Serrano, Tapies, MirĂ³, and the Portuguese Jose Guimaraes, Alberto Carneiro and Gerardo Burmester.
"The artist must know the painting, because painting is an election," said one day, Gerardo Rueda. His son, Jose Luis, would use the CAM to launch premium Gerardo Rueda that will distinguish young artists annually. For the year, should be opened in Madrid (next to the Reina Sofia Museum), a museum dedicated to the Spanish painter and sculptor.
