Suma y sigue del arte contemporáneo

ExhibitionIVAM Centre Julio González

Suma y sigue del arte contemporáneo was a fundamental magazine dealing with art criticism and theory during the 1960s. Published by José Huguet and with Vicente Aguilera Cerni as editor between 1962 and 1967, it became a path by which international trends and aesthetic debates were introduced into Spain. Its pages began to insist on the exhaustion of Informalism, and proposals connected with Op Art and Kinetic Art and the new forms of realism were developed. Important art critics such as Giulio Carlo Argan, José María Moreno Galván and Pierre Restany were published in Suma y sigue del arte contemporáneo. The magazine also collaborated very closely with various artists who designed its covers: Equipo Crónica, Monjalés, Manuel Millares, Antonio Saura, Antoni Tàpies and Joan- Josep Tharrats, among others.
