The Andalusian Centre for Contemporary Art (CAAC) presents the exhibition Extraño (Strange), which features works by 30 international artists from the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, comprised mainly of women. This exhibition is part of a major institutional project organised by the Andalusian Centre for Contemporary Art and the Patio Herreriano Museum. The varied and simultaneous exhibitions feature an unprecedented display of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo collection, thus commemorating 30 years of art collecting.
The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation is a non-profit contemporary art institution based in Turin, Italy, founded by art collector Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
The CAAC exhibition occupies the broad areas of the North Cloister as well as the entire Monumental Area. It is made up of impressive installations, as well as drawings, paintings, sculptures, video installations and textiles among other disciplines. Among the artists taking part are renowned names such as Mona Hatoum, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Louise Lawler and Paul McCarthy.

“Strange”
This maior exhibition is based on certain driving forces developed and linked throughout the exhibition on the basis of works from the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo collection, one of the most important collections in Europe focusing on the art of recent decades. These ideas swing between a range of nuances that emerge from the different meanings that can be found in the following six words: strange, extraordinary, extravagant, eccentric, exotic, foreign. The sense of strangeness in the face of the world’s future is combined on this unique occasion with the exceptionality that contemporary art provides as a framework for thought and experimentation.
A sense of estrangement, almost disbelief, has pervaded our lives in recent years. The global pandemic and the war in Ukraine have accentuated a becoming that appears to turn towards darkness. Guy Debord already spoke of a dead-end present that turns in the night. The monsters of reason linked to the human condition are arousing the serpent. Contemporary art, as an unusual language that plays with the unknown and the unfamiliar, can enable the spectator to find a way to materialize that which we sense but cannot quite grasp. In this way we discover other forms and other alien mentalities that speak to us of the times we inhabit.
