Gallery conversation

Spain: Art and Society in the 1959s and 1960s sets out an analysis of the Spanish artistic landscape following the Civil War and World War II. It focuses on the uniqueness of the time as a turning point in the return to experimentation after the trauma created by the conflicts. To illustrate the discourse, the visit takes us through works by artists including Eugene Smith, Antoni Tàpies and Equipo 57.

The guided visit takes place in the rooms of the Collection 2, the starting point of which is the 1940s. It is an addition to the group of visits which mainly revolve around the Collection 1, broadening the spectrum of subjects dealt with in this kind of visit and expanding the range that the cultural volunteers have available for secondary school students.

  • 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.
