MACBA brings together a variety of key works showcasing artistic creation from the last fifty years. As well as exhibiting work from its own collection, the Museum also offers a wide-ranging programme of temporary exhibitions from contemporary artists and organises activities on contemporary art and culture.
The Museum is an international leader in the dissemination of art and contemporary cultural practices. Located in the historic centre of the city, its iconic building was designed by the US architect Richard Meier and overlooks the energetic square of Plaça dels Àngels.
Each season, MACBA offers more than ten temporary exhibitions, including retrospectives of contemporary artists, emerging art collectives and representative figures from the world of contemporary creation. Each show is complemented by an interesting programme of activities: children’s workshops, seminars, lectures and free guided tours included in the ticket price. Many exhibitions are accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue.
This year the MACBA Collection presents an artistic journey structured in three main areas: #experience, #time and #conflict.The works in the exhibition question the various forms of conflict in today’s world, while reflecting on the relation of art with itself and its potential for interrogating reality. Moreover, they reclaim sensory experimentation, corporeality and the experience of time as fundamental conditions for artistic practice.
The exhibition includes 85 works by 50 artists of various generations from around the world, representing a chronological period of over five decades, from 1959 to 2014.
This exhibition presents the work of the architects, artists, filmmakers and investigative-journalists who make up the Forensic Architecture agency at the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London. Forensic Architecture uses architectural analysis, models and animations as investigative tools, primarily for the production and presentation of spatial evidence in the context of armed conflict and political struggles.
This evidence is presented in political and legal contexts, including international courts, truth commissions, and human and environmental forums.
