Featuring contemporary artworks presented alongside 17th-century paintings, this exhibition attempts to extricate the concept of the baroque from established clichés and traditional perceptions.
The Guggenheim Bilbao’s collection spans from the mid-20th century to the present day, concentrating on postwar painting and sculpture in America and Europe. The collection includes key works by significant artists including Anselm Kiefer, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, and Richard Serra, whose work The Matter of Time was created to be a permanent installation in Bilbao’s largest gallery.
