Fundació Antoni Tàpies

The Fundació Antoni Tàpies is housed in an early Catalan art nouveau, or modernista, building designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and is a reflection of Antoni Tàpies’ close ties to Barcelona. It was set up by the artist in 1984 with the aim of furthering the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art.

Today, it remains true to its founding spirit and has become a platform for contemporary creativity while contributing to a better understanding of the creative process, beyond the work and the figure of Antoni Tàpies. The institution brings other artists’ works to a wider audience and connects artists from Spain and around the world. It organises temporary exhibitions and special activities for a broad public from a multi-layered and interdisciplinary approach and produces different publications.

The Fundació Antoni Tàpies has one of the most complete collections of the artist’s work, mainly comprising donations from Antoni Tàpies and his wife, Teresa Barba. There is a library inside the building that has vast holdings of books about the artist and Asian, pre-Columbian, African and Oceanic art and culture. Other fields are also represented, from architecture, design and the decorative arts to photography, film and video.

This museum is one of the six Barcelona attractions included in the Articket: a skip-the-line passport that is valid for twelve months and features savings of 45%.
