Commission program / Site-specific order(s) :


The works are distributed between three venues:

1- The principal venue is in the headquartes of the company, a five storey building from the 19th century located in the center of Madrid, where most of the works are exhibited, inhabiting the work space together with the employees.
Calle Alcalá 65, 28014 Madrid

2- Part of the collection is also exhibited in one of the most important Spanish law firm offices in Madrid, Cuatrecasas Gonçalves Pereira. Some works are distributed in the main hall of the seven storey building, recently renovated by a famous architecture studio in a very modern style:
Cuatrecasas Gonçalves Pereira, Calle Almagro 9, 28010 Madrid

3- The third venue is the "bodega" that Bergé owns in La Rioja, in the north of Spain. This is an ancient winery with a medieval castle that produces two wines. Part of the collecion is exhibited in the gardens and inside the "bodega":
Castillo de Cuzcurrita. Calle San Sebastián nº, 26214 Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón, La Rioja.

The idea is a dynamic collection that rotates through the three venues, where workers, employees, clients and visitors can enjoy the collection.

The philosophy of the collection is also to accept loans of works for important exhibitions. We have collaborated with museums like Tate Britain (London), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisboa), Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro (Milán) among others…
