Mateo Mate

Considered one of the greatest representatives of Spanish conceptual art, Mateo Maté’s practice is both critical and humorous. His installations and works revolve around the question of what is patriotic or domestic—transforming a bed, stove, or table into a map or tablecloths into flags. Blurring the boundaries between public and private, Mate emphasizes the domestic and political elements in objects of nationalist fervor.


He has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Siqueiros Museum in Mexico City, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Herlizya Museum of Contemporary Art, Museo Patio Herreriano in Valladolid, Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Matadero Madrid, and Museo Lazaro Galdiano. He has participated in group exhibitions at Jeu de Pomme in Paris, PS1 MOMA in New York, Fundacion Marcelino Botin, Berardo Museum in Lisbon, Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago de Chile, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C., and MART in Trento Roveretto, among others.
