Rita McBride

Oferta pública / Public Tender

Oferta pública / Public Tender carefully documents the unique role of architecture in the contemporary art museum. Part muse, part public monument, MACBA is captured in a photographic exposé by Anne Pöhlmann, as it prepares for exhibitions over the year leading up to the deliberate archaeological rediscovery of Meier's original design intentions of 1995 and the concurrent installation of major sculptural works by Rita McBride in May of 2012. This unconventional exhibition catalog, with a presentation by Bartomeu Marí and essays by Luis Fernández-Galiano and Mark Wigley, sheds light on the structural and philosophical rigors of an architecture and a sculpture that literally offers its soul in the service of the public.

This book has been selected for the Spanish category of the PhotoEspaña 2013 Awards for Photography Book of the Year and has been shown in the exhibition Los mejores libros de fotografía del año.
