OT: Two Worthwhile Exhibitions at Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid


Collectionism and Modernity Two Case Studies: The Im Obersteg and Rudolf Staechelin Collections. This exhibition is co-organized by Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and The Phillips Collection in collaboration with the Im Obersteg Foundation and the Rudolf Staechelin Collection. It brings together two leading collections of early modernist art that now form part of the holdings of the Kunstmuseum Basel (Basel, Switzerland), the Im Obersteg Collection and the Rudolf Staechelin Collection, offering an opportunity to enjoy works by the most reputed early modernist masters, the vast majority of which have never before been seen in Spain. It is moreover a chance to explore the phenomenon of collecting, with a focus on its centrality to the formation of modern art. For further details click HERE.

White Fire – The Kunstmuseum Basel Modern Collection. This exhibition is organized by Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Kunstmuseum Basel, coinciding with the closure of the Kunstmuseum Basel for the remodelling of its spaces. The Museo Reina Sofía will be showing a selection from the Kunstmuseum Basel’s important collection of modern and contemporary art, comprising more than a hundred works (paintings, sculptures, collages, photographs and videos). This selection will range in date from the late 19th century to the present day and will aim to offer a comprehensive panorama that explains the transition from classic modern to contemporary art, including examples of Expressionism, abstract art, Constructivism, Minimalism, German Post-Expressionism and more.
