ADRASTUS COLLECTION: A RADICAL EXPERIMENTAL COLLECTION FOCUSED ON 21ST CENTURY ART
The Collection is centered on the most representative expressions of the XXI Century that circulates in the peripheries of capitalism and of western hegemonies; resulting in the creation of a platform that gives visibility to those voices that are always far from the art market’s microphones. With an acquis in continuous search for expansion, the Adrastus Collection includes more than 600 works by 120 artists from over 25 countries in 5 continents, with artists such as Pawel Althamer, Leonor Antunes, the collective Allora-Calzadilla, Tacita Dean, Ryan Gander, Jim Lambie, Justin Lieberman, Louise Lawler, Wade Guyton, Roman Ondák, Wilfredo Prieto, Pratchaya Phinthong, Walid Raad, Tino Sehgal, Kelley Walker, Steve McQueen and Dahn Vo, amongst others that have had the capacity to dislocate economic, political and cultural structures through the introduction of complex artistic devices.
The Adrastus Collection holds among its main objectives establishing a permanent seat in Spain, in particular within the Town of Arévalo, on the site known as the Jesuit College and San Nicolás Church, both presently in disuse and in a state of ruin. The integrative purpose of the Museum fully and respectfully considers the municipality of Arévalo and its history, connecting the city, nature, scenery and local traditions with the experience of art.
