‘Informalism’ and the new figuration

Informalism and the new figuration, Culturcat – Generalitat de Catalunya.

In today’s society we can see the start of a technological ‘informalism’ which is digital (Rafael Egea) or of a new objectivity (Jordi Urbon).

The ‘informalist’ thesis started its gestation after the Second World War: ‘informalism’ is an irate call, the artist’s spontaneous and almost instinctive expression that lacks intermediary signs. Some of the most important artists who have applied the ‘informalist’ thesis in their works have been Antoni Tàpies and Modest Cuixart.
