The individual exhibition that MACBA produced on Fina Miralles under the same title presented an approach to the artist's work from the relationship with nature, politics and performativity, from a current perspective. All these elements are maintained in the adaptation of the exhibition that is now presented in Index and Marabouparken, with the support of Acción Cultural Española. The tour of these two venues allows us to approach Miralles's work from feminism, environmentalism, from the questioning of identity and from the desire to rethink the relationship with the environment.
In both venues, Index and Marabouparken, complementary learning and educational activities are presented alongside the exhibition. Index is an art institution located in the center of Stockholm. With a long history, Index has been a key space for conceptual practices and the presentation of international artists. Marabouparken is an institution located in Sundbyberg, a municipality within Stockholm that follows tradition and opens contemporary art projects to a wide spectrum of the public.
Fina Miralles (Sabadell, 1950) is one of the most significant Spanish artists from the seventies to the present. The work of Fina Miralles breaks with the academic proposals that were taught in the art schools of her beginnings and with the established forms of behaviour. Its practice reconfigures the concept of the artistic, within that multiplicity of attitudes that blur what traditional historiography had encompassed under the heading of conceptual art. The history of art has ascribed Miralles' production to conceptual, land art or even feminism, without paying attention to the breadth and complexity of her proposals, which go beyond the limits of those labels. This project is a broad journey along a path of enormous importance.
Exhibition organized by the MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, with the collaboration of the Museu d'Art de Sabadell (MAS).
