  • 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.

    The Macba presents the first institutional retrospective of Rosemarie Castoro, (1939-2015). The exhibition focuses on the period from 1964 to 1979. Castoro was a multidisciplinary artist, who formed part of the New York vanguard, with wide artistic experience that included abstract painting, conceptual art, street and studio performance actions, sculpture, installations and land art.

    "Rosemarie Castoro. Focusing on infinity" also analyzes her activist aspect. It examines how her interest for dance is shown in her way of reading a space and in the performance photographs of her works, which she describes as "stages and containers for the body".

    Casa Vicens, the first masterpiece of Antoni Gaudí: Manifesto of his work

    The permanent collection, which occupies the whole second floor, is the cornerstone of the Casa Vicens Gaudí museum and will act as a foundation for the rest of the exhibitions and installations scheduled.

    The permanent collection is based on the social and cultural context in Barcelona when Casa Vicens was being designed (1883-1885), looking more closely at the beginning of the career of a young Antoni Gaudí through his influences, reflections, first projects, works and collaborations, to then focus on the original project and construction of Casa Vicens and how it changed over the years, above all explaining how the building techniques and art, structures and ornamentation all come together to form a single whole. It is in this final aspect that Casa Vicens is conceived as a whole art work.

    This collection begins with an audiovisual piece and continues with original pieces from the house and three interactive tables with historical documents, plans, models and the more unique and representative building and decorative materials from the House.

This means, a house in which experimentation on typology and style has all the features of what the author's work would become in later decorative architecture and furniture.The time connections with the Casa Vicens are shown, with dialog.

Brassaï focused particularly on the city of Paris, the core concept of some of the most iconic and significant images. His powerful and artistic eye captured vital moments of the everyday life of the city, especially its nighttime appearance and vitality.
