Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona presents Allora & Calzadilla’s first exhibition presented in Spain. The exhibition features a selection of works produced between 2005 and 2018 including Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on “Ode to Joy” for a Prepared Piano, 2008 and Hope Hippo, 2005. Spanning the full spectrum of media, the exhibition, which ran until 20th May, features performance, sculpture, sound, video, and photography.
The installations on view throughout the space invite visitors to consider the parallels between politics, history, materiality and economic systems. The artists’ expanded understanding of music and the acoustic, as a sensorial process echoes the complexity of their aesthetic and political analysis.
