- Start date:
Year 2020. Pure art.
Throughout January we will bid farewell to our Boldini and Eamonn Doyle exhibitions and will be launching our 2020 calendar. Sculpture, painting and contemporary photography are all coming to our Madrid and Barcelona exhibition halls to dazzle us with the work of some of the major names in 20th and 21st-century art.
From 4 February, the Recoletos Exhibition hall in Madrid will be staging Rodin-Giacometti, an exhibition that explores the connections between the work of these two major artists, revealing their parallels and differences, for the first time in Spain.
On 19 February the Richard Learoyd exhibition will touch down in our Bárbara de Braganza exhibition hall in Madrid, following its stay in Barcelona, with a selection of 51 color and black and white photographs that summarize the best of his work carried out over a decade.
On 13 February the Casa Garriga Nogués exhibition hall in Barcelona will be unveiling a major retrospective of the photographer Carlos Pérez Siquier, from Almeria, who won the National Photography Prize in 2003.
And in Madrid, from 1 of June in the Recoletos Exhibition Hall, we will be displaying six decades worth of work by the North American photographer Lee Friedlander.
In the second half of the year photography will be taking on a starring role.
The work of Bill Brandt, an artist vital to our understanding of the history of photography and even 1950s British life, can be enjoyed first in Barcelona, in our new photography center which will be opening its doors in June, and following on from that, from 10 of September in Madrid.
Also being staged in Barcelona, with over 70 works from our Photography Collection, we will be taking you on a journey through the entire career of Paul Strand, one of the most important photographers of the 20th century.
From 22 October, our new photography center will be staging another two exhibitions: a retrospective exhibition of the work of Garry Winogrand, a key photographer in the renewal of documentary photography, and the Historical Photographic Archive of the MNAC Collections.
Painting is also reaching our Recoletos Hall in Madrid with the work of Leonora Carrington. On 30 September we will be unveiling an exhibition that will introduce us to the work of this English artist; ranging from her first drawings through to her later works.
Note all the dates down in your diary and get ready to visit the exhibitions.
Art awaits you in our exhibition halls.
