Collage Reset

The crisis that has been affecting the entire planet since the beginning of 2020 has brought us face to face with our own reality, calling into question all existing systems and convictions. In a global scenario marked by uncertainty, the importance of rethinking the future from the individual and the local emerges as one of the only certainties.

‘Reset: Tales from the Vanguard’, aims to reflect on the global crisis caused by the expansion of the Covid-19 from the field of artistic practice. To this end, with the collaboration of Victorino Rosón Diez-Feijóo (Aldebarán Collection) and Celia S de Birbragher (Artnexus), this curatorial project has invited a selection of international artists to share their personal views on the current situation and its consequences.

Each of the proposed works, together with the individual reflections by the artists, constitutes a personal way of approaching both the present time and the future. In this way, we present a unique vision of this crucial moment in which both the art system itself and society in general are undergoing a tension and uncertainty unprecedented in recent decades.

About Victorino Rosón Diez-Feijóo and the Aldebarán Collection

The collection was created in the late 1980s as a personal project of collector Victorino Rosón (patron of the ARCO Foundation and winner of the 2012 ARCO Prize in the category of private collecting). The collection was gradually positioned within the conceptualist and minimalist approaches to art. As time went by, the collection incorporated artists such as John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Max Bill, Martín Chirino, José Dávila, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Meese, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Scheibitz or Lawrence Weiner.

His son Victorino, who today accompanies us in this curatorial project, has begun to develop projects related to the family collection and promotes the work of collecting and patronage that his father carried out with great passion. At 29 years, Victorino has decided to continue expanding the collection (recently named the Aldebarán Collection) after a long learning process, during which he has identified the discourse he wants to provide to his project.
