On the 26th of April 2002, the date of ARTIUM official inauguration, the 666th anniversary of Francesco Petrarca´s ascension to Mont Ventoux was celebrated. His determination to see by himself its extraordinary height was the reason why he took on such a venture.

As of November 12th, ARTIUM offers a new presentation entitled COLECCIÓN II. This exhibition is a selection of art pieces chosen out of the museum's collection. After the first inaugural exhibition which presented a wide chronological display about the Spanish contemporary art movement from its beginning till present day, ARTIUM now offers a second presentation which narrows down the art pieces in display to those that belong to the period ranging from 1960 till present day. Atrium's permanent collection is in continuous expansion, thus being able to adopt different shapes and express different discourses. Therefore, the museum feels the obligation to offer different presentations, which allow visitors to establish diverse relationships, analyses and interpretations.

ARTIUM, Basque Centre-Museum of Contemporary Art, presents the chamber exhibition “CVA. Juan Luis Moraza and Marisa Fernández” (North Gallery, until January 9), which is included within the exhibition “The Collection in Context” as an example of the transformation that took place in the art of the Basque Country in the early eighties. CVA was a group formed by the artists Juan Luis Moraza and Marisa Fernandez, which was extremely active during the period 1979-1985 and had a great deal of influence on the artists who subsequently developed their own, highly interesting artistic careers. Based on a reflection upon the limits and codes of the representation of art, their work is full of frames and pedestals, aproduct of the radical reduction of the artistic object to its boundaries. Through the publication of a catalogue and by compiling the small number of documents available, this retrospective exhibition also fills the documentary vacuum with respect to this "artistic company" (as the artists themselves called their group), due to the meagre artistic infrastructures of that time.

This exhibition contains a series of works grouped in five blocks, due either to the close relationship that exists between some of them, to their emotional energy and even to their literalness, can provoke intimate worries or reflections that direct us towards the self-look, to the contemplation of details, to an intense abstraction.
