MADRID.- “The story we propose is more like The
Thousand and One Nights than War and Peace”. With this graphic example the head
of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia referred to the reorganization
of the museum’s collection which will open to the public today.
One and
a half years after starting his job at the museum of contemporary art, Manuel
Borja-Villel, has made a complete turn around and now the museum’s collection
shows modern art in a new way and starts off with works made by There will no
longer be a linear exhibition of works of art, by date, creator and theme,
but what there will be is a scheme where relations and connections will
allow us to see movies made by Buster Keaton and Luis Buñuel together with the
works made by Goya, Solana and Picasso and also African art, which so inspired
the artist from Malaga.
