Artium Museoa, Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country presents its exhibition programme for the first half of 2022, the year that marks the 20th anniversary of the inauguration of our centre.
The programme for the first half of 2022 opens with A Place to Think: Experimental Art Schools and Educational Practices in the Basque Country, 1957-1979, an exhibition that recovers a number of educational projects that aimed to create meeting places for training and cultural and intellectual growth in the period under review. A set of varied proposals whose common denominator was not to follow formal or official education, but to indicate that each activated “place to think” became a space of possibilities. The relationship between experimental educational projects and artistic practice is one of the main lines of work of our institution. The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between Artium Museoa and the Jorge Oteiza Foundation.

April sees the opening of two solo exhibitions, one dedicated to Erlea Maneros Zabala (Bilbao, 1977) that brings together a number of works produced by the artist in recent years, and another on Anna Daučíková (Bratislava, 1950), in which her recent production is linked to other historical works. This is the first solo exhibition in Spain dedicated to this Slovak artist, whose work has been displayed in such important events as Gender Check (Mumok, Vienna) and Documenta in Kassel.

In June, Artium presents an exhibition on Néstor Sanmiguel Diest (Zaragoza, 1949) entitled La peripecia del autómata, embarking on a journey through his career from the 1980s to the present day. The project is to be divided into two simultaneous venues: the Palacio de Velázquez-Reina Sofía in Madrid and the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country in Vitoria-Gasteiz. The project stems from a collaboration between the two institutions.

Film, the moving image and its link with the languages of contemporary art will continue to be present in our programme for the first half of 2022. The Z Gallery season, dedicated to the junctions between filmic languages and visual arts, will feature such relevant artists and filmmakers in these fields as Aura Satz (1974), Ainara Elgoibar (1975), Ephraim Asili (1979) and Edurne Rubio (1974).

In terms of heritage research and dissemination, Artium will continue to reorder its museum collections and to stage the series of exhibitions dedicated to new additions of works and artists to the Artium Collection. Contexts from a Collection begins in February with a project by Ion Munduate (Irun, 1969).
