Pintura dels setanta a Barcelona. Superfície i color
The seventies, a time of political and social upheaval in Barcelona, was a volatile period for contemporary art as Informalism gave way to the Neo-Figurative explosion of the eighties. The exhibition Painting of the Seventies in Barcelona offered a survey of this period through the work of artists such as José Manuel Broto, Xavier Grau, Joaquim Llucià, Antoni Tàpies and Patricio Vélez, focusing on the singularity of each of them within the shared context of non-figurative painting. Textured surfaces and experimentation with colour were the core features of these two generations and the key to understanding the evolution of Catalan pictorial art at the time.
