  • Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya

    Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya

    Inaugurated years ago as the world's first film festival dedicated to the fantastic genre, today it's become the region's biggest celebration of the moving image. The picturesque seaside town of Sitges, 30 minutes down the coast from Barcelona, hosts hundreds of films from around the globe, including animation, rom-com and gangster as well as its core themes of gore, horror and fantasy. This year's event, the 51st, celebrates the anniversaries of various iconic movies, including John Carpenter's Halloween (1978), which is also tied into a retrospective on slasher films, and 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Night of the Living Dead, both released in 1968. Organisers are also using the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein to explore the role of women in many of the movies based on the seminal novel.
    Running in parallel to the screenings are exhibitions, master classes and Q&A sessions, special events focused on television series, the chance to see films using virtual reality technology, plus a crowded Zombie Walk through the streets of Sitges.

  • After the End of the World

    After the End of the World

    "After the End of the World" is an exhibition about the planet of 2017, irreversibly transformed into an Anthropocene planet after two centuries of human intervention in natural systems. But it is also an exhibition about how we will reach the world of the latter half of the 21st century, and about our society's responsibility to the generations who will be born and grow up in it. The project brings together voices from the various disciplines of creation and thought; together, artists, filmmakers, novelists, playwrights, architects, designers and scientists will imagine scenes, stories and escape routes to the different possible worlds that we can build, according to the decisions we make in the coming years—decisions in which we are all much more than mere spectators.

  • MACBA collection. Beneath the surface

    MACBA collection. Beneath the surface

    MACBA Collection. Beneath the Surface brings together works that focus on the problems deriving from representation and its limits, as well as the relevance and incidence of the artist and art in contemporary society. Although from different conceptual and formal approaches, many of these pieces share references to Conceptual art, forms derived from Minimalism and a contemporary fascination with material and surface. Beneath the Surface, and hence the title, examines the interest in aspects beneath which lie contents of a very different nature. It is worth mentioning the performatic component that permeates some of the works.

    The exhibition is integrated by works of various formats and typologies by artists such as Ignasi Aballí, Antoni Tàpies, Lucio Fontana, Karla Black, Art & Language, Angela de la Cruz, Derek Jarman, Latifa Echakhch, Félix González-Torres, Charlotte Posenenske, Rita McBride, Gregor Schneider, Doris Salcedo and Michelangelo Pistoletto, among others.

  • Lita Cabellut. Retrospective

    Lita Cabellut. Retrospective

    Lita Cabellut (Sariñena, 1961) is an artist wholly dedicated to art for art's sake, regardless of the dictates of the market. This retrospective, which brings together her latest work (from 2008 up to 2017) gives an insight into her capacity to depict the duality between beauty and ugliness. Cabellut achieves this through the human body which is what she feels best represents this beauty. But through inheriting the classicism of Goya, Velázquez and Rembrandt, the artist's work also features a psychological aspect, positioning it in the realm of risk and gesture.

  • Tyrannosaurus Rex

    Tyrannosaurus Rex

    Cosmocaixa is bringing Trix to Barcelona. Trix is a tyrannosaurus rex found in Montana, USA, by a Dutch team. Well, rather its skeleton. It is one of the three most complete skeletons ever found, with over half its bones and without being deformed. By viewing Trix, we can learn how to interpret data from paleontologists to answer key questions about when it lived, why it is so well preserved, what it ate and much more.
