International Museum Day, 2014

17 and 18 May, 2014 /
Nouvel Building, Auditorium 400; Nouvel Patio; Exhibition rooms

Once again, the Museo Reina Sofía joins the annual celebration of International Museum Day (IMD) with two open days and a selection of activities that aim to take a deeper look at the dialogue between the collections and the public, as well as reinforcing the idea of the museum as a space for non-disciplinary education and collective learning. The theme proposed by IMD this year, the ties created by museum collections, is a reminder of how museums are living institutions that allow bonds to be created between visitors and their collections, maintaining and reviving the relationship of a community and its history, and presenting spaces for dialogue between generations.



Along with other activities, the Museo presents an extensive programme of guided tours, a family concert performed by Mastretta and his band, the concert and audiovisual performance Imagining Miró, by the Ignasi Terraza Trio, and the dance piece Privolva Landing by the choreographer and dancer Olatz de Andrés.



Admission to the Museo is free on 17 and 18 May.

    Workshop-Encounter for young people

    Education Workshop

    Admission: free

    Capacity: 20 young people from 13 to 18 years of age

    Registration: Via email at: hastadieciocho@museoreinasofia.es or by phone: +34 91 774 10 00 Ext. 2096

    Based around the theme proposed by the IMD, in reference to the bonds created by museum collections, the Team, a group of young people that collaborate with the Museo Reina Sofía, will prepare a special activity that aims to explore the relationship between young people, both male and female aged between 13 and 18, and the Museo Reina Sofía, making it a space for encounters and exchanges.

    Therefore, the young participants will have the chance to discover, through performances and different group dynamics, spaces that go unnoticed by the average visitor, as well as alternative ways of approaching the works inside the Museo. The rediscovery of the Museo in a group will take place over two hours on the afternoon of Saturday 17 May. After this journey around the spaces inside the Museo, the young people will be able to enjoy an afternoon snack organised by members of the Team.

    A family-oriented concert that brings together the extensive experience of Nacho Mastretta, a renowned multi-instrumentalist and composer, and the backdrop of the stimulating collections inside the Museo.

    Mastretta’s band, made up of eight musicians that effortlessly move between different musical styles – from jazz to rock via fusion – will perform a set created specifically for the Museo, where the music will enter into dialogue with a selection of audiovisual pieces from the Collection.

    The combination of the visual experience with sound, improvisation and the trust and familiarity between the band and its audience, not to mention the playfulness and humour involved, are the keys to a show that will see an audience made up of children and adults of all ages as the focal point.

  • Imagining Miró
    18 May, 2014 - 7:00 p.m.

    Imagining Miró. Concert and audiovisual performance by the Ignasi Terraza Trio

    Live Arts Concert
    Nouvel Building, Auditorium 400

    Admission: Free, with prior ticket collection at the Museo Ticket Offices from 5 May, up to thirty minutes before the performance. A maximum of two tickets will be allocated to each person.
    Places for wheelchair users and hearing loops are available. If you require any of these services, please write to: accesibilidad@museoreinasofia.es

    Jazz and painting shake hands in the Suite Miró, a series of pieces inspired by works from the Catalan artist, composed by Ignasi Terraza and played by his Trio. The Suite Miró premiered last year at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and is presented in Madrid for the first time. 


    In 1966 Duke Ellington visited Joan Miró in his Nice studio, and played a couple of tunes surrounded by some of his sculptures. This meeting, captured on film, serves as an introduction to the performance created by Ignasi Terraza: a production to make the mind wonder as it imagines Miró’s work through music and poetic description.


    In a secluded hall cloaked in semi-darkness, the rhythms and sounds produced by the Trio are submerged in the imagery of Miró’s work, recreated through poetic descriptions and thought-provoking pieces written by Carlota Polo, as well as images created by the video artist David Cid.

    The performance is offered to visitors free of charge thanks to the support of the Orange Foundation and the ONCE Foundation and represents an inclusive cultural initiative aimed at people with or without visual impairments. One and all are invited to share the mental images and sound creations composed by the blind pianist Ignasi Terraza via the world of Miró.

  • Privolva Landing
    17 and 18 May, 2014 - Saturday 17 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday 18 at 12:00 noon

    Privolva Landing

    Live Arts Modern dance
    Nouvel Patio

    Admission: Free

    Privolva means the other side of the moon, the face never seen from the Earth. Three bodies move between the individual and the collective, and are interdependent and functional, like an efficient and unique body that creates the opportunity for survival or limitation.

    Privolva sets forth a choreographed hypothesis of bodies that become homogenised and work in series in a possible dystopian future, comprehending homogenisation as a safe, but equally limiting, place that dilutes identities. Privolva Landing is found within an undefined space, one that is multi-dimensional and poetic. And what if in the future we had shared individualities? And what if in the future bodies became homogenous? And what if to take a step forward meant we needed another to take that step? This dance piece, based around sci-fi imagery, is created and directed by Olatz de Andrés, who won First Prize in the Choreography Competition in Madrid.



    Olatz de Andrés is a choreographer, dancer and art manager. Since 2010 she has co-managed the dance and creation space Muelle 3, in Bilbao.
