Marlborough Madrid presents a project developed in several spatial modules whose axis revolves around the different ways of understanding color.

The first selection of works will establish a conversation within the field of op art between Bridget Riley (UK, 1931) and the scientist and artist Adrien Lucca (France, 1983).

The first selection of works will establish a conversation within the field of op art between Bridget Riley (UK, 1931) and the scientist and artist Adrien Lucca (France, 1983).

The practice of this latter seeks to challenge the notion that vision is synonymous with knowledge: his works explore the limits of visual perception. Riley’s perspective, on the other hand, makes use of flat colors that play and overlap, alluding to a new landscape.

Anish Kapoor (India, 1954) presents a solo show in which he explores a ceremonial atmosphere connected to ritual. A single space will be dedicated to understanding his specific use of color through opposites in order to create shadows.

We will also present a group exhibition with works by Eduardo Arroyo (Spain, 1937-2018), Herbert Bayer (Austria, 1900 – United States, 1985), Max Bill (Switzerland, 1908 – Germany, 1994), Piero Dorazio (Italy, 1927 – 2005), Helen Escobedo (Mexico, 1934 – 2010), Ángela García Codoñer (Spain, 1944), Adolph Gottlieb (United States, 1903 – 1974), Beverly Pepper (United States, 1922 – India, 2020) and Jesús Rafael Soto (Venezuela, 1923 – France, 2005), all of whom belong to a specific period: 1965 to 1975.

Finally, there will be a dialogue between the sculptors Lucas Simões (Brazil, 1980) and Blanca Muñoz (Spain, 1963), with pieces in which color is manifested through electrolysis. The Spanish sculptor works with metal, achieving iridescent results; the Brazilian, trained in architecture and urbanism, imagines forms that allow him to explore the material. Two generations united in the use of electricity as a means of tracing the transformation of color and its evocations.
