Phillip Allen, AFM Collection
CCA Andratx, Mallorca, Spain
04 May 2012 - 30 September 2012
The CCA Andratx is very pleased to host the Special Edition of the Art Foundation Mallorca Collection. Dedicated to support and promote emerging art and artists, the CCA has become an essential meeting place for art lovers, artists, curators and investors. The current presentation of the cutting edge collection of Art Foundation Mallorca fully reflects this purpose and is a must-see for anyone interested in contemporary art.
The Special Edition Show at the CCA Gallery includes almost eighty percent of the entire AFM Collection. Curated by Patricia Asbaek the show beautifully emphasizes the significance of the collection that comprises striking master pieces as well as more challenging works by younger artists. Some of the works will be shown for the first time at the CCA Andratx and others will be approached from a new point of view, which will be an opening mind exercise for viewers. An opportunity to see major works by Cosima von Bonin, Jan Albers, Jeppe Hein, Phillip Allen, Cerith Wyn Evans, Gregor Hildebrandt, Rachel Howard, Bernhard Martin, Stefan Sandner, Phoebe Unwin, Jannis Varelas and many others sharing space together in Mallorca.
The AFM Collection has established itself as an internationally renowned collection of Contemporary Art in Europe. With approximately 200 pieces from 150 major artists, it has become an important guidance for worldwide trend-hunters and stakeholders in Contemporary Art.
