Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall

Art for all in the heart of Barcelona

The Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition hall opened its doors to the public in the fall of 2015. Throughout its history, at different times and with various activities, we have featured important Catalan works and have collaborated with some of the main cultural institutions in Catalonia. One recent and notable example would be our collaboration with MNAC (Catalan National Art Museum) in 2011 for our exhibition entitled The splendor of the Romanesque, which displayed the museum's exceptional Catalonian Romanesque collection for the first time in Madrid. The opening of this exhibition hall has firmly established our track record in this area.

The Exhibition hall is located within the Casa Garriga Nogués, in the heart of the Barcelona Eixample district, a showcase in which the Barcelona middle class at the ends of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century could demonstrate all their splendor through architecture. This magnificent building designed in 1902 by the architect Enric Sagnier combines the Rococo, Neoclassical and Modernism styles.

Today the Casa Garriga Nogués boasts a modern exhibition space of 2,700 m2 where we hold exhibitions focusing on the early stages of modern painting (1850-1950) and on major photographers.

Ground-breaking and bold, the North American photographer Berenice Abbott served as a bridge between the cultural circles of Paris and New York in the 1920s and 1930s. Abbott's portraits of Parisian artists and intellectuals and her vision of the transformations of New York City are outstanding depictions of the modernity of the 20th century.
