The first of four special publications to accompany a year-long display of works from Barcelona’s ‘la Caixa’ Collection at Whitechapel Gallery, selected by and featuring newlycommissioned fictional works by some of the most original English and Spanish-language writers working today.

Established in Barcelona in 1985 by Fundación ‘la Caixa’, the ‘la Caixa’ Collection of Contemporary Art features over 1,000 works of international contemporary art from the last 30 years, including artists such as Antoni Tàpies, Joseph Beuys, Cornelia Parker and Doris Salcedo.

For a major four-part display running from 2019–20, Whitechapel Gallery has partnered with ‘la Caixa’ Collection to showcase key pieces from the Collection, with each of the four ‘chapters’ curated by a contemporary writer, who will also contribute a brand new work of fiction in response to their selection. Each display will be accompanied by a fullyillustrated catalogue featuring the works displayed and the new text, accompanied by a foreword and introduction from both institutions.

About the Author

The second chapter, on display in Summer 2019, will be selected by Maria Fusco (b. 1972, Belfast; lives and works in Glasgow), a writer of fiction, critical and theoretical texts and screenplays, and ‘one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary writing in the UK’ (Artangel). She has published critical writings (collected in Give Up Art, 2018), short stories (The Mechanical Copula, 2011) and is founder/editorial director for the experimental art-writing journal The Happy Hypocrite.

Preceded by the first chapter selected by Enrique Vila-Matas, this second chapter will be followed by a third curated by Tom McCarthy (Autumn 2019-20) and a final fourth chapter curated by Valeria Luiselli (Spring 2020).
