The Kells Collection was established in 1996, as a result of the approach of Juan Manuel Elizalde and Choli Fuentes to the world of Art. At that time their interest is focused on artists and works of modern art, mainly in the language of painting and sculpture of the second half of the 10th century: Feito, Saura, Clavé, Sempere, Genovés or Baltasar Lobo, among others.
In 2004 the Kells Collection turned its attention to contemporary works and creative processes, including objects of character, through the acquisition of the first contemporary work. Since then, the Kells Collection is immersed in a continuous process of growth through the incorporation of new languages such as photography, for which they feel a special passion. As well as video, video-installation, installation, archives and objects of character that are added as means of expression. Conceptually, Juan Manuel and Choli understand collecting as an intense journey of learning and emotions.
This year, as a novelty, the Kells Collection will be participating in UVNT 2022 with an acquisition award among the exhibiting artists. The winner will be announced on February 24, during the preview of the fair.
