The Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid, Spain) presents an exhibition that explores the influence that the French poet, playwright and actor, Antonin Artaud (Marseilles, 1896 – Paris, 1948) has had on the visual arts, focusing especially on how important his legacy is in understanding the post-war avant garde movements that developed in the United States, France and Brazil.
Using different kinds of media (painting, music, film and poetry), the exhibition will show how Artaud's wish to transcend the confines of language, both spoken and written, has survived in the work of a series of artists concerned with some of the most relevant art questions of the 20th century, such as the body and the participation of the spectator.
Dates: from September 18 to December 17.
Location: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Santa Isabel 52, 28012, Madrid. Spain.
