EXHIBITION | In the Shadow of Dictatorship: Creating the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art
February 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - June 18, 2023 @ 5:00 pm CSTFree to Paid
During an era when Spanish abstract artists found success abroad yet struggled for recognition at home, the artist and collector Fernando Zóbel (1924-84) established the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art in Cuenca, Castilla-La Mancha. The museum opened to the public on July 1, 1966, and was the first institution in Spain dedicated exclusively to abstraction. Highlights from this remarkable collection—most coming to the United States for the first time—explore the rich panorama of abstract Spanish art under the Francoist regime.
This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum and the Fundación Juan March and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation. Promotional support is provided by the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District.
