  • Picasso Discovers Paris

    Picasso Discovers Paris

    Barcelona's Picasso Museum is one of its most-loved art centres, focusing as it does on the early years of the Spanish painter's life; he moved with his family to Barcelona in 1895 when he was 14 and already well established in his art studies. The city played a key role in his development; in places such as Els Quatre Gats café, he regularly met with other creatives involved in the avant-garde movement. But he was a man constantly looking for new experiences and inspirations, and this exhibition at the Museu Picasso looks at the impact that his first two visits to Paris had on him.

    Among the artists on show are Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Gauguin (on loan from the permanent collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Musée national Picasso Paris), whose work Picasso first encountered in person when he was in the French capital.

  • Velázquez and the Golden Age

    Velázquez and the Golden Age

    One of the greatest painters in history is the protagonist of this extensive new exhibition at CaixaForum. Diego Velázquez was born in Seville in 1599 and, before his death 61 years later, produced some of the most renowned works from Spain's acclaimed Golden Age. His renditions of the Spanish royal family (created in his role as the lead artist of the court of Felipe IV) such as 'Las Meninas' are particularly famed, but the Baroque artist also captured religious scenes as well as more down-to-earth subjects, including 1629's 'The Drunks'.

    Today, the most important collection of his works is held in Madrid's Prado Museum and that's the source of many of the pieces on show here, which are compared and contrasted with those of several of his Spanish and European contemporaries such as Zubarán, El Greco, Murillo and Ribera. Don't miss this excellent opportunity to see a spectacular selection of 17th-century paintings at Barcelona's beautiful CaixaForum venue.

  • In the Open or in Stealth

    In the Open or in Stealth

    Through a mediation program entitled the "Personae Project", by which MACBA will be holding direct discussions with the people of Barcelona, the museum is launching "Al descubierto o a escondidas" (In the Open or in Stealth), an initiative curated by the Raqs Media Collective that will explore a concept of the future in which multiple stories and geographies enter into dialogue. These urban stories will be published online and informal meetings will be held. Using all the stories from this spread of people, the project provides a reflection on our own lives and the complexities of coexistence. It represents a point at which art intersects with historical research and philosophical speculation.
