about "La Mercè 2018. Open Day"
The exhibition featuring French-Algerian artist Kader Attia, the winner of the latest edition of the Joan Miró Prize, is a survey of his most relevant works from the last few years, in a dialogue with new ones created for the exhibition. Selected especially by the artist, these pieces revolve around the notion of repair, one of his main areas of interest.
