Juan Gris, Portrait de Madame Josette Gris [Portrait of Madame Josette Gris], 1916
Actividad pasada Monday, 17 May 2021 – 12pm and 5:45pm / Sabatini Building, Restoration Department
Restoration workshop guided tour

The Restoration Department organises a visit around its workshop to offer insight into the restoration process on Juan Gris’s work Portrait of Madame Josette Gris (1887–1927) from the Collection.

One of the Department’s restorers will offer an in-depth explanation of the different analysis methods used in the intervention, as well as the processes that have been carried out in order to conserve the work properly. For instance, they will describe the gigapixel studies with visible light, raking light and ultraviolet light, and infrared digital photography — technology which enables digital high-resolution images to be captured, outlining details that cannot be picked up by the naked eye — methods that have contributed invaluable information to gain extensive knowledge of the work. It has also enabled the undertaking of adding reversible elements to the frame, granting prior and subsequent protection of the paint, with a temperature control system and relative humidity, which will be vital when moving the painting in the future.     

Admission: free, until full capacity is reached, with prior registration at the Sabatini Building information point.
Capacity: 6 people per session
Length: 30 minutes per session

Department of Conservation and Restoration, sponsored by the MAPFRE Foundation
The restoration work has been funded with the help of a grant from the Bank of America Art Conservation Project

Actividad pasada From 28 June to 6 July 2021 / Medialab Prado
Double Faces II

The work of Yassine Balbzioui (Mohammedia, 1972) questions the play with simulation, the mask, the “unsaid” that societies organise and which come to form reality. In his work Double Faces II during his Medialab Prado residency, he resumes the collaboration and performance Double Faces started during Dak'Art, the 2012 African Contemporary Art Biennial, with Yago Torroja (Madrid, 1963), a professor at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and researcher in the field of artistic practice and new technology. The result of this collaboration will occasion an interactive performance, to be held on 6 July 2021 at 7pm in Medialab Prado (Alameda Street 15).

Force line: Avant-gardes
