The Museo Reina Sofía stages a retrospective survey of the work of artist Miguel Ángel Campano (Madrid, 1948 – Cercedilla, Madrid, 2018) by way of a selection in excess of one hundred works made from 1972 onwards. The show, the last exhibition project in which the artist directly took part, parades the problems, processes, and resources Campano focused on.
Not ever channeling them into the ditch of any single style, Campano’s long cycles of painting succeeded; and so narrating Campano’s oeuvre – and its many forms – always requires enunciating an “and then,” an après. Sticking to Campano’s succeeding interests, the exhibition also renders an account of the constants in a career traversed by emotional impetus and an analytical, learned approach to painting.

As part of the performing arts series staged in collaboration with the Community of Madrid’s Teatros del Canal, the Museo Reina Sofía presents An Evening of Solo Works by choreographer Meg Stuart.
The evening will see Stuart re-engage with various solos created between 1995 and 2018, in which she reflects on her state as a woman, choreographer, worker, and lover. Her practice questions duties, roles, status and power relations through physical, poetic and emotional work driving movement, with her oeuvre traversed by dialogue maintained with the diverse community of collaborators and by the images, desires and questions that have accompanied her across her career.
Upon the conclusion of the performance, the artist will participate in a conversation, presented and moderated by Isabel de Naverán.
