Darío Villalba at the CGAC
July 12, 2023
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo (CGAC), two institutions dependent on the Xunta de Galicia, the CGAC itself and the Gaiás Museum of the City of Culture, join forces to celebrate and highlight the transforming importance of the CGAC as a museum, but also and above all, as the creator, depositary and custodian of the public collection of contemporary art of reference in Galicia.
An anniversary is more than a celebration. To remember a history is also to take stock, to review and reread the past in order to gain momentum to face the future. This exercise of revision also necessarily implies the recognition of the work of all those people and institutions that, in one way or another, have participated in the planning and execution of a programme and in the construction of an essential public collection. Hence the title of this exhibition, Teamwork, emphasises the collective effort of those who, since 1993, have contributed to building and consolidating an essential project for culture and art in Galicia.
The exhibition therefore aims to tell the story of this institution through its collection, by means of an exhibition itinerary articulated between the ground floor and the basement, with pieces from the CGAC Collection, among which the work of the gallery's artist, Darío Villalba, stands out, together with others on loan that will allow individual exhibitions and collective projects to be displayed.
