EXHIBITIONS / Óscar Domínguez: Decalcomania and Objects

20 November, 2012 - 02 September, 2013
Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid
Paloma Esteban

The artistic career of Óscar Domínguez includes two such closely-linked facets as are the evocation of native features from his homeland and the cultivation of surrealist praxis. Particularly interesting among the formulas employed by Domínguez in the context of surrealism is his use of decalcomania and objects, the latter of which were also produced to a high degree by other artists, among them Max Ernst. In the exhibition dedicated to Domínguez in 2012–2013, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía focused precisely on these decalcomanias and objects, two types of creation intimately related to the surrealist procedure par excellence: automatism.

A key part of the exhibition was made up of loans from the Lafuente Archive, which provided all the documentation to supplement the works in museum rooms, together with two of Dominguez’s more important decalcomanias.
