ARTIUM, Basque Centre-Museum of Contemporary Art presents the exhibition "The Collection being Context. 1973-1985” (North Gallery, until January 9), a retrospective look at the years that saw a radical transformation in Spanish art and the emergence of new figures and structures. Coinciding with the transition to democracy, the change on the artistic scene was not, however, so much a transformation as a rupture, parallel to similar movements throughout Europe, also accompanied by social and political changes The exhibition produced by ARTIUM and curated by its Permanent Collection Department, documents this period with 60 works by some of the artists who took a leading part at the end of one epoch and the beginning of another in Spanish art.

Artium Museum, presents a third exhibition of the permanent collection entitled Rumbos. La Colección III. (Directions. Collection III). It does so following its initial commitment both, to display its funds in a rotary and temporal basis, and to offer different viewpoints to enrich art consciousness. Resulting from a deep artistic analysis, this new presentation of the permanent collection focus on the notions of voyage, trajectory, direction; that is to say, on the different directions the artists take along their lives to create art. Thus, the exhibition displayed in the southern gallery, presents a selection of artists with two or more works belonging to the museum funds. Being displayed together, these works (first decades of the 20th century until present day) offer the viewer the opportunity to identify the different directions artists have taken in their art creation.
