Antonio Tapies: The Practice of Art at Bozar (until Jan 7, 2024) celebrates the ‘master of matter’ on the centenary of his birth with the most important retrospective of his work in almost 20 years in the newly renovated exhibition rooms which show the Catalan artist’s monumental works in their full glory. The exhibition includes self-portraits and works influenced by Surrealism and Dadaism as well as Tapies’ first “matierist” paintings, produced in the 1950s, which incorporate raw materials, marks and signs. Beyond the artist’s experimentation with form and material, the visitor can also penetrate the mystical, philosophical and political dimensions of the Tapies universe.
