"Elogio de la obsesión"

Santiago Olmo

n the 1980s, groups such as the Italian Transvanguardia and German Neoexpressionism began to create an artistic framework for debate: liberation of dogmas and free recourse to references and singular traditions, overcoming the concept of the avant-garde, and exalting individual creativity, as well as post-colonial thinking and a multicultural look, fostering a contemporary world art.

This exhibition establishes a journey through the process of fragmentation of the avant-garde concept and subtly suggests the ways in which synthesis of broader artistic currents has been produced, through the affirmation of individual, subjective and personal obsessions.

PRAISE OF OBSESSION

SANTIAGO OLMO

 

Santiago Olmo, critic of the third edition of the exhibition "Vision of Contemporary Art", recounts the relationship of all the artists included in the exhibition: "Seen from its internal processes, this seemingly chaotic labyrinth of individualities begins to be organized in a structure where the diversity of proposals and singular obsessions responds to a very precise and detailed analysis of forms: projects in which obsession gives rigor.
