November 9, 2013 to February 10, 2014
Organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery
and guest curated by Daina Augaitis, Chief Curator/Associate Director

A pioneer in the fields of conceptual and media art, Muntadas’ rigorous practice includes performance, video,
photography, multimedia installations, publications, web-based projects and public art. Muntadas: Entre/Between ,
a survey exhibition of the artist’s more than forty-year career, included a selection of key works that manifest
his ongoing exploration of the important political and social issues of our time.
In recognition of her long-standing engagement with the artist’s work, the Gallery’s Chief Curator/Associate
Director Daina Augaitis was invited by the artist and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid,
to curate this major exhibition. The presentation opened to great acclaim at the Reina Sofía—one of Europe’s
most prestigious contemporary art museums—in November of 2011, with an official ceremony attended by
Queen Sofía of Spain, before travelling to the Museu Gulbenkian in Lisbon and the Jeu de Paume in Paris. The
Gallery hosted the final presentation of this important international tour.
