Galería Elvira González, in Madrid, in Spain, will be hosting an exhibition on the works of Juan Muñoz from 14 January to 12 March 2016.
Juan Muñoz (born in 1953, died in 2001) was a Spanish sculptor, working primarily in paper maché, resin and bronze. In 2000, Muñoz was awarded Spain’s major Premio Nacional de Bellas Artes in recognition of his work. He has been called “the most significant of the first generation of artists to achieve maturity in post-Franco Spain, and one of the most complex and individual artists working today.” His works are displayed in such galleries as the Guggenheim Museum, in Bilbao, Guggenheim Museum, in New York, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Tate Modern in London.
Galería Elvira González opened in February 1994, founded by Elvira González, director of Galería Theo for 30 years. Artists such as Miquel Barceló, Chema Madoz, Waltercio Caldas, Olafur Eliasson, Robert Irwin, and Robert Mapplethorpe have joined the gallery. The gallery works with major museums and cultural institutions and provides guidance to private and public collections. Together with the exhibition program, the gallery holds an extensive collection of works by artists of the 20th century.
