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.

What's on

Art & Activism through Intersectional Feminism

at Pol&Grace
Nikki Luna and curator Sara Catalán will develop a conversation about global intersectional feminisms through the lens of Art and Activism.

The participants will illustrate an overview of their experience in art and activism, and examine the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women and non-binary individuals during the emergence of current waves of feminism. The conversation will highlight the voices and experiences of people of color elucidating an alternative to the predominant white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement—in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, activism and it’s connection to art.

DAY: Sunday 26th January

TIME: 5:30-7pm

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.
