Art and Space

Guggenheim Bilbao

5 Dec 2017 - 15 Apr 2018

The collaboration between Chillida and Heidegger in 1969 on an artist book entitled Die Kunst und der Raum, is the centre of this exhibition. While Heidegger inscribed his words on a set of lithographic stones, Chillida produced an accompanying series of “litho-collages” at a moment that critics identify as the apex of his graphic art. The exhibition exemplifies the space-oriented debates of this period with contemporaneous works by Anthony Caro, Sue Fuller, David Lamelas, Sol LeWitt, James Rosenquist, and Lee Ufan; alongside late works by key figures in Constructivism, Spatialism, and avant-garde sculpture, pointing towards preexisting space-related enquiries in modern art, which may have informed Heidegger’s work.
