Present time. Concept Art Collection by Raphael Tous

Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), Barcelona presents an exhibition project “Present time. Collection of conceptual art by Raphael Toes ".

This collection contains testimonies of a generation that chose to participate in exhibitions held in alternative cultural spaces rather than more traditional art venues.

The Raphael Tous collection, donated to MACBA just a year ago, is a portrait of a particular artistic practice at a particular point in time. A passionate collector associated with the world of textiles, Raphael Tous has come to love concept art with its varied practices that nevertheless put the idea and process over the object. Acting intuitively and without regard to market speculation, Toes has created a collection that helps define the views and experimental work of a group of artists, many of whom have become friends and supported in their creative paths.

Based on site materials Museum of Modern Art (MACBA), Barcelona.
