La Movida
A major new exhibition inspired by the cultural explosion of 1980s Madrid
April 14–July 17, 2017

This pioneering, contemporary group exhibition, takes the artistic and socio-cultural movement La Movida (literally “the movement”) of post-Franco Spain as its thematic heart. It is not an exhibition about the early 1980s in Madrid, it is an exhibition inspired by it. Using a historical movement as the curatorial basis of a contemporary group art show produces an effect much like a movement itself, contradictory, confusing, eclectic, invigorating and hopefully a little bit out of control.

Suddenly, or so it must have felt, the forbidden arenas of politics and sexuality were open season for public debate and creative communities. Excess, clubbing, drugs, artistic freedom, women’s rights, gay rights, pornography and more, all collided in an outpouring of freedom from suppression. An irrepressible desire for making up on lost time subsequently played out across the population through television such as La Edad de Oro (The Golden Age, 1983–85), and the films of Pedro Almodóvar.

The exhibition sets new commissions reacting to the movement alongside existing international works that explore major conceits of La Movida. 40 years since the transition to democracy, the exhibition and its related films, performance and literature present a re-imagining of a movement with a strong contemporary artistic and socio-political resonance today.

Artists featured are Oreet Ashery, Bruce LaBruce, Luis López Carrasco, Clara Casian, Alejandría Cinque, Jesse Darling, Patricia Esquivias, Paul Heyer, Derek Jarman, La JohnJoseph, Raisa Maudit, Chim↑Pom, Puppies Puppies, Linder Sterling, Esther Teichmann and Stefanos Tsivopoulos.

Jeff Koons
Puppy Vase, 1998

Jeff Koons plays with ideas of taste, pleasure, celebrity, and commerce. “I believe in advertisement and media completely,” he says. “My art and my personal life are based in it.” Working with seductive commercial materials (such as the high chromium stainless steel of his “Balloon Dog” sculptures or his vinyl “Inflatables”), shifts of scale, and an elaborate studio system involving many technicians, Koons turns banal objects into high art icons. His paintings and sculptures borrow widely from art-historical techniques and styles; although often seen as ironic or tongue-in-cheek, Koons insists his practice is earnest and optimistic. “I’ve always loved Surrealism and Dada and Pop, so I just follow my interests and focus on them,” he says. “When you do that, things become very metaphysical.” The “Banality” series that brought him fame in the 1980s included pseudo-Baroque sculptures of subjects like Michael Jackson with his pet ape, while his monumental topiaries, like the floral Puppy (1992), reference 17th-century French garden design.
