THE IBERDROLA COLLECTION

Patronage and new forms of expression

We are committed to art, and our goal is to reinforce our sponsorship in a sustainable manner, supporting actions that preserve our past heritage and promote new forms of artistic expression.

The Iberdrola collection: Origins of modernity in the Basque Country, Spanish art form 1957 onwards, new frontiers.

Iberdrola's art collection has gradually grown over time, and in the last seven years has received a significant boost after being rearranged and expanded. The works in the collection are arranged in three blocks which are in constant development, and illustrate and underline the three important stages of evolution of Iberdrola as a company:

  • The Basque school of the late 19th and early 20th century.
  • Spanish works of art from the second half of the 20th century to the present day.
  • International art, with a special focus on other media (photography and video), reflecting the global expansion of the company over the last decade.

It is also worth highlighting the key presence of pieces from the cultural settings in which Iberdrola operates, as material evidence of the close links that bind the company to the societies where it operates. Lastly, lighting is a key feature in all the works –both the light given off by the works themselves and the light emanating from within them. 

As a socially responsible company, our mission is to share, disseminate and provide access to art. We often loan works to museums and other institutions, and they have been on display to the public in the touring exhibition entitled "The translucent skin", featuring a selection of painting, sculpture, photography and video from the Iberdrola collection.

The result of this expansion is Iberdrola-Arte, a new website where you can see all the collections, exhibitions and events taking place, and all of Iberdrola's many sponsorship actions in the area of the arts. All of this information can also be accessed from the App created for iPad. Open the App Store for iOS (iPad) and download it.
