COLLECTION XII
6 OCT 2015 31 JAN 2016

Since opening in 2008, CA2M has lent great emphasis to its collection with the purpose of conserving, studying and exhibiting it better and to bring it closer to the general public through an outreach programme specifically designed around it. To this end, CA2M regularly rotates its holdings in a series of exhibitions conceived to fashion new meanings, to forge new bonds and connections between the artworks and to envisage new ways of interpreting our surrounding world.

Comprising around 1700 works, the CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo de la Comunidad de Madrid Collection provides a constantly expanding overview of the changing face of art from the 1980s to the present moment. As one would expect, it has a special focus on its local contexts from Madrid and from Spain, continually adding new works that mirror what is happening with their artists, galleries and exhibitions. Furthermore, since 2014, CA2M is also the repository of the Fundación ARCO Collection, whose 300 plus world-class works provide a vision of the evolution of international art over recent decades.
