Eugenio Ampudia

Valladolid, 1958

He lives and works in Madrid. Currently one of the most renowned Spanish artists. His multidisciplinary work has just received the AECA Award for the best living Spanish artist represented in ARCO18, which he already won in 2008, and the ARCO-BEEP Award, Electronic Art Collection. In 2008 he also received the Delfina Foundation (London) scholarship.

Under a critical attitude, his work explores the artistic processes, the artist as a manager of ideas, the political role of creators, the meaning of works of art, the strategies that launch them, the production, promotion and consumption mechanisms, the effectiveness of spaces assigned to art, as well as the analysis and experience of those who contemplate and interpret them.

His works have been exhibited internationally in places such as ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany; Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico; Boston Center for the Arts, Boston (MA), United States; Ayala Museum, Manila, Philippines; Whitechapel in London; Real Academia Española in Rome; at Biennials in Singapore, Havana and the Biennial of the End of the World; and it is part of various collections, such as MNCARS, MUSAC, ARTIUM, IVAM and La Caixa.

He is currently part of the exhibition La ecología de las imágenes – Hors Pistes (5th edition) at Centre Pompidou Málaga.
