"Second Beginning. Arts in Catalonia 1950-1977", is a multi-disciplinary exhibition, represented by hundreds of pieces of art, that will testify for the period of the shadows in the present history
The new exhibition in MNAC gathers around 400 works, like paintings, sculptures, films and various documentary materials. The intention of "Second Beginning. Arts in Catalonia 1950-1977" is to complete the historiography of the period and to foreshadow something that might be a permanent exhibition that would go almost until the nineteen eighties.
The time period between 1950 and 1977 is one of the most relevant periods for the revitalisation of Catalan art, which started after the so-called period of Dau al Set and Cobalto 48 or publications like Ariel or Algol, towards the process of democratic and institutional restitution of the country.
This exhibition shows all the agitation and underground that happened during those twenty-seven years of artistic renovation, by focusing on the exhibitions, the publishing projects and the cultural events that forged, sometimes under the shadow of the historiography, the contemporary artistic practices in Catalonia.
Second Beginning. Arts in Catalonia 1950-1977
