Jordi Teixidor (Valencia, 1941) has been one of the leading exponents of abstract painting in Academic Spain from the Real Academia de Bellas Artes (Royal Academy of Fine Arts) of San Fernando since 2000. In 2014, he received the National Award for Plastic Arts. IVAM has paid particular attention to this tireless, cult, rigorous and unclassifiable creator throughout his history: In addition to including his work in its collections and in important group exhibitions, in 1997, the museum dedicated a major retrospective exhibition and publication to him.
With Endgame, the museum takes another look at Teixidor’s work, shaping a project that distances itself from a retrospective of use. This exhibition stages new conversation spaces to establish stimulating dialogues which take into account the coherence of Teixidor’s plastic language, in addition to his personal attitude to the challenge of creation: “Devoting yourself to art means choosing a reality to settle into”.
