The best of the contemporary art of 2008

Work of Lucio Muñoz in the exhibition Silencis

Since we are of memoirs of the best thing and the worst thing, in Art Spain we have selected 5 facts of the contemporary art of 2008 that he is worth while remembering:

1. This position touches the exhibition Silencis in the Monastery of Siloes, that Carlos Franco assembled 24 Spanish contemporary artists, between them to Antoni Tàpies, José Maria Sicilia, Joan Miró, José Manuel Broto, Esteban Vicente, Miquel Barceló, Cristino de Vera, Susana Solano, Albert Rafols-Casamada, Martin Chirino, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Sergi Aguilar, Sergio Belinchón, Manuel Rivera, Eduardo Chillida, Manolo Millares, Juan Carlos Savater, Lucio Muñoz, Miguel Ángel Blanco, Carmen Laffón, Gustavo Torner, Xavier Mascaró and Francesc Ruiz. This way 8 years of exhibition were celebrated in Siloes.

2. The exhibition of Elizabeth Peyton in New York, the young and international contemporary artist that more we like, both in the pictorial language and in the subject-matter that it tackles.

3. The exhibition Machines and Souls of the Museum Queen Sophia, who assembled for the first time in this space, to the creators of the contemporary art and the new technologies, beginning a big way for the institutional legitimization of the average art, net art, digital art and vídeoarte.

4. The retrospective of Juan Muñoz in the Guggenheim Bilbao, which there assembled big part of the work of this so valued Spanish artist.

5. The exhibition Works Graph 10 The Country in the gallery Marlborough, with works in artist's engraving as Eduardo Arroyo, José Manuel Broto, Rafael Canogar, Martín Chirino, Juan Genovés, Luis Gordillo, Cristina Iglesias, Antonio López García, Jaume Plensa and Manolo Valdés.
