Casa Vicens

CASA VICENS WAS THE FIRST MAJOR COMMISSIONED WORK THAT ANTONI GAUDÍ RECEIVED IN 1878, AND IS CONSIDERED HIS FIRST MASTERPIECE. IT IS AN IMAGINATIVE, MODERN AND INNOVATIVE PROJECT, WHERE THE ARTIST USES FOR THE FIRST TIME NUMEROUS STRUCTURAL, DECORATIVE AND SYMBOLIC ELEMENTS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY DEFINE THEIR ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE.

Fashion week

February

IN ORDER TO LEAVE BEHIND THE IDEA OF THE BARCELONA CATWALK BEING AN EXCLUSIVE EVENT FOR BRANDS OF YOUNG AND LOCAL PEOPLE, THE CURRENT PROJECT SEEKS A BALANCE BETWEEN FUTURE PROPOSALS, DESIGN AND BRANDS WITH A MORE COMMERCIAL APROACH. IT IS INTENDED FOR CREATIVITY TO BE PRESENT, BUT FROM A BROAD AND TRANSVERSAL PERSPECTIVE, WHICH IS A REFLECTION OF THE COMPANIES AND THE CREATORS BEHIND IT.

Sant Jordi

April

IS A CATALAN HOLIDAY HELD ON 23 APRIL. THE MAIN EVENT IS THE EXCHANGE OF GIFTS BETWEEN SWEETHEARTS, LOVED ONES AND COLLEAGUES.

What's on

SPECTRUM

'Folklore' by Twee Muizen inaugurates Spectrum WIP.

Friday 24. 19: 00h. Carrer de Joan Blanques 22. Gracia.

Twee Muizen brings “Folklore’ to Spectrum WIP, curated by Txemy in collaboration with Amaia Arrazola and Itziar Luna. Recently shown at the Cervantes Institute in Berlin by Pictoplasma, the exhibition inaugurates the new space in the Barcelona neighborhood of Gracia, with it’s imaginary filled with illustratios, masks and art toys.

Folklore speaks of Galician popular culture, Folklore speaks of the relationship of the human being with their real environment, the vegetable and the animal, finding beauty in the organic forms of nature.

The Galician duo is composed by Cristina Barrientos and Denis Galocha, raised in villages near Santiago de Compostela, towns full of animal and mountain vegetation, something that can be seen in his work. Both work under the same name as the concept and ideas they represent is co-created together, Cris being in charge of textile and Denis of graphic and pictorial work. Spectrum Wip is composed by the illustrator Amaia Arrazola, designer Itziar Luna and the painter Txemy Basualto, curator of this exhibition.

In this exhibition project the artists introduce an ornament loaded with old time symbolism. Their masks, an element created to hide faces and whose use doesn’t leave indifferent users nor spectators. Twee Muizen uses masks to reflect on the parallelism that we experience as urban citizens, as we tend to return to the rural environment, Galicia in this case, where they reunite with their roots; the result is a mixture with real and unreal person.

May 22, 2019 Matías Pérez - Sevilla Miscelánea

Miscelánea es una asociación cultural, galeria de arte y café que está en pleno Raval. Me tope con ella por casualidad mientras paseaba por Barcelona y fue un descubrimiento fantástico, ya que no sólo exponen a artistas emergentes, si no que venden prints numerados de un montón de artistas interesantísimos. Recomiendo muchísimo una visita a este pequeño ensueño cultural, perdido en medio del bullicio y la calma ravalera.
