About this Event

The Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain joins the Phillips Collection to celebrate its 100th anniversary with , a project by Spanish artist that will be presented in Washington, DC at the same time as .

Originally screened on the facade of the Museo Nacional del Prado to mark the museum’s 200th anniversary in 2019, and now presented for the first time in the United States, Amalgama is a generative video artwork created with the Museum’s historically central painting collection. The Museum’s entire collection was transformed by an algorithm, created by the artist’s studio, that liquifies the works of art into a mercurial blend. The pictures will be projected while they slide through the oculus in the ballroom of the Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain in Washington, DC. The title, Amalgama, or amalgam in English, refers to the process of blending or melting visuals.

Amalgama El Prado will be presented in Washington, DC at the same time as Amalgama Phillips, a new work by Daniel Canogar at the Phillips Collection conceived in celebration of the museum’s 100th Anniversary and recently acquired for the permanent collection.

Amalgama is an attempt to understand how digital media is transforming our experience of the history of art, perhaps updating Malraux’s Museé Imaginaire to the digital age. The swirling effects that have transformed the original artworks evoke the ceaseless flow of information that courses through the Internet, transforming how artworks are consumed, processed and circulated online. “Amalgama” above all addresses the challenge of making, viewing and circulating art in our liquid modernity.
