Reina Sofía Museum Announces Rene Daniels. An exhibition is always part of a greater whole

The Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid presents René Daniëls. An exhibition is always part of a greater whole on view October 20, 2011 – March 26, 2012.

Ironic and imaginative, the body of work by René Daniëls (Eindhoven, 1950) provides another frame of reference for thinking about painting, beyond the post-minimalist and neo-expressionist allusions of the 1980s. René Daniëls’ space is a point of slippage between language and image, occupied by the ambiguities between representation and reality inherited from René Magritte and Marcel Broodthaers. As the artist himself wrote, his painting attempts to occupy the no man’s land between literature, visual art and life.
