Over the past thirty years, the CGAC has progressively approached the idea of a museum, without ceasing to be an art centre. At the same time, the concept of the museum has been changing and evolving towards more experimental, dynamic and participatory models, focused on the production and construction of complex collections with the capacity to generate new narratives that encourage public debate.
How, then, can the history of an institution like the CGAC be told? How is it possible to synthesise thirty years of work in one exhibition? These are questions that the exhibition A Possible History of the CGAC and the project which encompasses it attempt to answer. This is obviously done through its collection but also by reconstructing a summary of key works in its exhibition programme, which, at the time, were present and that dialogue with each other, establishing connections that give meaning to a programme. The exhibition also includes a timeline that gives an account of the activity of the museum and a sample of the publications (exhibition catalogues, artist's books and compilations of texts and essays) that, over the years, have been adding to the centre's publishing collection.
