After exhibiting in Granada and Madrid, The Presence of Black, 1950-1966 will be on display at Fundació Suñol from May 8th until September 9th.
Organised by the Centro José Guerrero from Granada to commemorate the centenary of the birth of José Guerrero (Granada, 1914 – Barcelona, 1991), this exhibition is the first in-depth, monographic exploration of the painter’s American years, which had the most decisive influence on his career.
The exhibition begins with his first experiments with abstraction in the etchings and 'portable frescoes' he made in the early Fifties, which reveal a painter deeply interested in the possibilities of combining painting and architecture. The exhibition continues with Guerrero’s subsequent complete integration into American Abstract Expressionism in the mid-Fifties, and concludes with the reencounter with his Spanish memory and return to his native country in 1965.
