As part of the exhibition Critical Episodes (1957-2011). MACBA Collection, Level 1 of the Museum presents two new episodes of the MACBA Collection. The first Content becomes something to be avoided like a plague presents works by artists such as Art & Language, Raymond Hains, Nigel Henderson, Robert Morris, Robert Rauschenberg and Antoni Tàpies.


In the mid-twentieth century, as Europe was emerging from the post-war period, a new model of painting had taken hold. Abstract Expressionism, which had developed in America, abandoned
representation of any kind. Paintings had become a field of perceptual stimuli. By the sixties, a series of voices within the field of painting itself began to speak out and challenge this way of understanding art. Significant counterproposals included incorporating
objects into the painting surface, using images from advertising and photography, applying an analytical approach to the artworks, and exploring their relationship with their exhibition context.
