Entre tiempos. La Colección Jozami

07.02 – 12.05 / 2014
Lázaro Galdiano Museum , Madrid

With the title of Entre tiempos… La Colección Jozami en el Museo Lázaro Galdiano, a selection of paintings, photographs, and videos from Argentina’s Jozami Collection is on view for the first time in Spain. The show features 80 works by such figures as Antonio Berni, Luis Felipe Noé, Luis Seoane, Liliana Porter, Joaquín Torres García, Pedro Figari, Xul Solar y Gabriela Sacco, Boltanski, Vik Muniz, Ana Mendieta, Leandro Elrich, and Tunga, among others.

Gathered in the La España Moderna building is a significant repertoire of Southern Cone figurative works, while the galleries of the museum proper hold videos and photographs alongside works from the Lázaro collection.

The Jozami Collection was launched 40 years ago as an initiative of sociologist, entrepreneur, and academic Yazbeck Jozami and his wife, the journalist Marlise Ilhesca. The collection’s aesthetic approach has two parts: modern and contemporary art from the Southern Cone, and contemporary international photography and video art. The collection holds over a thousand works dated from the Nineteenth Century to the present. This new exhibition is a recognition of the efforts of two prestigious Latin American art collectors, who recently joined the Board of Trustees of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía’s foundation.

Through the Foro del Sur foundation, these collectors have fostered such international exhibitions as Argentina hoy and Obra gráfica de Antonio Berni, among others. With the Foundation, they also produce educational materials related to the history of art which are distributed to educational institutions.
