Spanish Museum of Abstract Art in Cuenca

The Spanish Museum of Abstract Art is one of the most interesting and original museums in Spain, located in one of the Hanging Houses in Cuenca. The museum was founded in 1966 by a group of Spanish abstract artists, who wanted to create a place for the presentation and promotion of their work. Among them were Fernando Zóbel, Gustavo Torner, Gerardo Rueda, Antonio Lorenzo, Eusebio Sempere and Antonio Saura. The museum is managed by the Juan March Foundation, which is responsible for its conservation and development.

The museum has a permanent collection of more than 120 works of abstract art, among which there are paintings, sculptures, prints and photographs. The collection includes works by artists from different generations and currents, such as informalism, geometric abstraction, lyrical abstraction, organic abstraction and kinetic abstraction. Among the most famous and valued creators, whose works can be admired in the museum, are Eduardo Chillida, Antoni Tàpies, Pablo Palazuelo, Manuel Millares, Manuel Rivera, Martín Chirino, Luis Feito, Rafael Canogar, Manuel Hernández Mompó, José Guerrero, Manuel Viola, José María Yturralde, Jordi Teixidor and Soledad Sevilla.

The museum also organizes temporary exhibitions, dedicated to various aspects and tendencies of abstract art, both Spanish and international. The museum also offers educational and cultural programs, such as workshops, conferences, concerts, film screenings and publications. The museum is open every day, except Mondays, and admission is free.

The Spanish Museum of Abstract Art is not only a museum, but also a work of art in itself. Its location in the Hanging Houses gives it a unique character and charm. The contrast between the old and new architecture, between the natural and artificial landscape, between tradition and modernity, creates an extraordinary atmosphere and aesthetic sensations. The museum is a place where abstract art lives and interacts with the viewer, inviting him to discover and interpret its meanings and emotions.
