Make your way to the huge Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) and let your imagination wander as you explore both the temporary and permanent collections. As the heart of Barcelona's contemporary art scene, the museum boasts of a permanent collection that includes 3,000 works from the mid-20th century onward. This includes pieces from the 1940s till the 1960s, 1960s till the 1970s, and contemporary.
One of the current exhibitions is titled A Short Century and features a chronological display of the MACBA Collection from 1929 to the present day. This is a story told from the perspective of Barcelona and its immediate context. Find here works that depict the transformation of Barcelona in the 1930s and its commitment to modernity, to the involvement of art in the Spanish Civil War. See the first attempts to rekindle the spirit of culture in the post-war years, and an expression of feminist and hippie movements through artistic expression in pop, psychedelia, and acid pop.
Fina Miralles: I Am All the Selves that I Have Been is a temporary exhibition that displays works by one of the foremost Spanish artists of the 1970s: Fina Miralles. Her art reflects on the relationship between art and nature, the body and society, the restrictive rules imposed by codes of conduct, and the need for freedom. Art stories from Barcelona is a series of open videos in which various artists, theorists, and activists offer their reading of a specific episode in the history of art - all while placing them in the Barcelona of the last century. Plague is an exhibition that ties into the concept of plague and the forms of categorization of what exists.
