The original works share space with the visions of children, who have reinterpreted the titles of the works, imagined exhibition spaces for them and created artistic murals.
What makes an art collection? How do you organize an exhibition? What criteria are followed for distributing the different pieces in a room? What is the job of a curator? Espacio Fundación Telefónica presents ‘Untitled-The Telefónica Collection as you’ve never seen it before’, an unprecedented educational experiment in Spain in which 100 children collaborated in the task of curating an exhibition and played an active role in putting it together using the company’s art collection.
La Belle Société by René Magritte, Assemblage amb Graffitti by Tàpies, Yunque de Sueños XIII by Eduardo Chillida, L’appel by Paul Delvaux, Soliloquy I by Sam Taylor-Wood… Dozens of paintings, photographs and sculptures from Telefónica’s art collection form part of the exhibition ‘Untitled. The Telefónica Collection as you’ve never seen it before.’ Some of these works have not been exhibited since the 1990s and can now be seen for the first time in 20 years in a special interactive and innovative space.
The exhibition first emerged as an educational project to spark off children’s interest in art and give them a closer insight into Telefónica’s Art Collection in a more original way. The result is an unprecedented educational experiment in Spain in which 100 children aged between 10 and 12 collaborated in the task of curating an exhibition and played an active role in its development.
