This presentation from the MACBA Collection will be marked by a new thematic thread, a response to a hypothesis which argues that, in our cultural context, the aesthetic eruption of modernity began, not in the early-20th century, but in the 1950s. This flourishing in the use of new materials occurred in an environment in which it is difficult to distinguish fine art from architecture or design. The aforementioned hypothesis could be used to explain the development of the arts up to the 1980s or even until 1992.
Josep Maria Mestres Quadreny "Aronada", 1971

Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
