Paul Klee and the Secrets of Nature
The exhibition Paul Klee and the Secrets of Nature centres on the ongoing fascination of the Swiss-German artist for the observation of nature and natural phenomena. The exhibition is structurated in four sections, each of which includes work of other artists who also explored aspects of natural phenomena. As female artists, however, they did not receive due attention or consideration in their day

The point of sculpture
The Point of Sculpture offers an overview of the practice of modern and contemporary sculpture from an asynchronous, heterogeneous perspective that also includes older pieces and anonymous objects. The exhibition, arising from the ambition of twentieth-century sculpture to move beyond representing and generating images, also aims to show the major transformation of this discipline in the twenty-first century with the implementation of new techniques and the emergence of new imaginaries and sensibilities.

Between 2006 and 2009, the years leading up to the global financial crisis, Juande Jarillo (Granada, 1969) spent his free time seeking out moments of people gathering together or crossing paths in Barcelona. Jarillo set up his camera in different locations in the city centre, sometimes riding the tourist bus, and waiting for the precise moment when a conjunction of forms, an interplay of gazes and reflections, or a composition of figures or of urban artefacts would unfold. His aim was to capture the almost invisible textures, light and vectors that cross the urban landscape at a given moment.
Shared Studios. Three Case Studies

about "Shared Studios. Three Case Studies"
The exhibition Broken Games is a selection of 13 photographs by different authors: some were taken by Joaquim Gomis’ father, others by Joaquim Gomis (1902-1991) himself, and one by Gomis’ wife, Odette Cherbonnier. What prompted this exhibition was a desire to present materials from the family albums in the Gomis Archive held at the National Archive of Catalonia, which evoke summertime joie de vivre as well as fun vacation and leisure time.

Miró-ADLAN: An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936)
Miró-ADLAN: An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936) reconstructs the key role of the group of artists and intellectual known as ADLAN (Amics de l’Art Nou [Friends of New Art]) in introducing modernity to the Barcelona of the 1930s, during the years of the Spanish Republic. While in major European cities avant-garde movements had the support of critics and collectors, here modernity needed the impetus of an enthusiastic group that sought to regenerate Catalan culture and adopted Joan Miró as its leader in the promotion of new art.

In this selection of photographs-most of which convey low temperatures, were taken at dusk or at times of low luminosity-, we find elements that can both open or close a space or dissolve its boundaries and contours. Mayoral photographs places that might seem hostile, places where time has been suspended, a time that does not seem to exist and that the locations do not allow to situate or signify.
