Constructing New Worlds

Las vanguardias históricas en la colección del IVAM 1914 – 1945


This show offers a new view of twentieth-century art in the Permanent IVAM Collection, based on a careful selection of fundamental works of the historic avant-garde between 1914 and 1945.

As a result of their ground-breaking nature, after over a century these works still represent a paradigm of avant-garde art, establishing a new formulation of the conception and process of art.

The exhibition analyses the spirit and essence of the avant-garde and how it was expressed in the development of the theories of the various art movements that emerged during this period.
