Modernity and the Avant-garde

Senior Citizens

Gallery conversation

The idea of this guided visit is to give Senior Citizen groups a comprehensive view of the artistic events that took place between the final years of the 19th century and the 1930s, a time when numerous artistic proposals were juxtaposed and interconnected. Participants are invited to take an active, critical approach stemming from considered thought about just what their adoption of the concept of Modernity might have meant to the artists of the classic avant-garde.

Taking full advantage of Collection 1’s idiosyncratic approach, Modernity and the Avant-garde makes all kinds of connections between artistic, audiovisual and documentary works, in order to bring out each one’s potential as a vehicle for dialogue. In keeping with this concept, the programme of visits offers Senior Citizens the opportunity to come into close contact with contemporary culture under the guidance of a cultural volunteer

  • Guided visit Guernica. The history of an icon
    January 1 - December 31, 2016

    The purpose of this activity is to help visitors understand how and why Guernica by Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881- Mougins, 1973) has become a symbol of Spain's transition to democracy and a universally recognised icon. The narrative goes beyond traditional interpretations and uncovers the multiplicity of factors and implications related to the artistic act.
