  • Peter Hujar. Speed of Life.

    Peter Hujar. Speed of Life.

    Although the Fundación Mapfre opened its Barcelona exhibition venue (in the modernista building Casa Garriga i Nogués) in autumn 2015, it has already welcomed a stunning selection of artworks to this city centre site in its various shows to date: paintings by the likes of Renoir, Van Gogh and Matisse, and photos from Bruce Davidson and Hiroshi Sugimoto.
    Now it hosts the world premiere of a retrospective of US photographer Peter Hujar. For 30 years, he captured numerous images of New York City's creative community, of which he was a key figure; his black-and-white shots include friends like Susan Sontag and William Burroughs. Through his explorations of what such portraits could achieve, Hujar sought to reveal the truth of the person in front of the camera, and some of his most famous photos feature drag queen Candy Darling on her death bed. While he published just one book and died young, his singular images, of which some 160 are on show here, continue to captivate.

  • The Night of Museums

    The Night of Museums

    As the weather gets warmer and the nights become a more inviting time to be out and about, The Night of Museums is an excellent excuse to get an evening dose of culture. The concept is simple: one Saturday in May, the city's museums keep their doors open late into the night offering a different way to see the permanent and temporary exhibitions currently on show, as well as the chance to enjoy specially organised activities, such as family workshops, live performances and guided tours. It's actually a global event, one that started in Berlin in 1997 and is now celebrated in around 120 European cities. Here in Barcelona, the number of participating entities has grown significantly, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a museum that's not taking part. To make it easier to decide which ones to visit, check out the itineraries mapped out on the event website, which group together various institutions, providing an alternative late-night tour of the city.

    "The perfect excuse to enjoy a night time injection of culture until the early hours. A night when museums open for free so you can enjoy all kinds of special activities."

  • Festival Jardins de Pedralbes

    Festival Jardins de Pedralbes

    Only created in 2013, it's enjoyed a rapid rise to success thanks to three key features. The first is the setting. Pedralbes Palace is a splendid 1920s building located in the uptown part of the city, and its landscaped gardens of fountains, statues, lawns and many types of flora play host to the festival's concerts. The second key is the programme. From esteemed stars such as Tom Jones to cult figures including Patti Smith and relative newcomers like The Lumineers, the bill is always carefully curated. In addition, there's a special day dedicated to families (June 11st) and another focusing on electronic music. Finally, festival organisers Concert Studio have consistently made gastronomy a priority, collaborating with top chefs to ensure the whole festival experience is one to remember.

    "A fantastic experience at the magnificent palace of Pedralbes with big names like Tom Jones and fine dining brought to you by prestigious chefs. It also hosts a day specially for families and another dedicated to electronic music."
