  • Sacred Animals of Ancient Egypt

    Sacred Animals of Ancient Egypt

    Through objects that form part of the collection of the Barcelona Egyptian Museum, we can learn about many aspects of the relationship established by the ancient Egyptians with species of the animal world of their immediate environment. Apart from their use as an economic resource, pet or hunting prey, animals are present in a number of cultural expressions of Pharaonic Egypt. However, animals took on the central role in the religious field, more than in any other ancient civilization. For various reasons, the majority of species known by the Egyptians, were associated with a specific divinity. Mammals, insects, birds, fish or reptiles were used as models in the design of divine images, either their whole body or part of it. They were even mummified, for their remains to be used as a physical support to the immortal soul of their gods. Certainly one of the most attractive and new parts of the exhibition, is the presentation of results obtained from tomographies made on six animal mummies preserved in the Egyptian Museum

  • 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.

  • 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.
