    Castellers

    One of Catalonia’s most famous traditions is that of the “castells” (castles), which are human towers that are lifted by building different levels of people until reaching insane heights that can go up to ten stories. There is no mechanical help, and tens and even hundreds of people can take part in it. The “castellers” are the people who carry out this activity, which is over 200 years old.
    Acknowledged as Immaterial Cultural Heritage by Unesco, his origin is believed to be around the area of Tarragona, Catalonia’s second most important province after Barcelona. During the 20th Century this practice spread all over Catalonia. The “castellers” are grouped in “colles” that normally take the name of its place of origin.

  • Fernando Vijande. Portrait: 1971-1986

    Fernando Vijande. Portrait: 1971-1986

    The big bet of 2017 at the Fundació Suñol revolves around the figure of Fernando Vijande, an exhibition that will take up all the showrooms available, including the Nivell Zero.

    From the first day, Fernando Vijande kept an original line, promoting avant-garde movements, but always keeping in mind his own aesthetic criteria and taste rather than the art market tendencies. His position was supported internationally in an exhibition called New Images from Spain showed at The Guggenheim Museum of New York in 1980 in which Vijande had the opportunity to display different artists that had been shown in his galleries.

    Fernando Vijande and 51 Artists will show works by 51 different artists that were exhibited at his galleries. These pieces will cohabit with recent works by the same artists and documentation from that vibrant and transgressive period. Some of these artists gained international recognition while they were exhibited at Galería Vandrés or Galería Vijande, such as Juan Bordes, Carmen Calvo, Joan Hernández Pijuan, Nino Longobardi, among many others. But at the same time, Vijande brought international artists to Spain like Robert Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe or Andy Warhol, whose works will be shown too.

  • 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.
