Exhibitions

The Scent of Fall
Now on  - Mar 22, 2021

Now here's an exhibition that really passes the smell test! Celebrating the acclaimed Catalan artist Ernesto Ventós, Casa Vicens is launching a unique exhibition called The Scent of Autumn, which focuses on a sensory experience that most art exhibitions tend to overlook: smell.

Ventós was born deaf, but developed a uniquely keen sense of smell through which he interpreted the world around him with incredible creativity. Barcelona's most flamboyant architect was all about it...

Ventós was originally hired by Gaudí to furnish his first architectural masterpiece – Casa Vicens – with the extraordinary scents and aromas that gave each room a signature fragrance. Over time, these scents dissipated, but the idea behind them is being reignited with this special olfactory exhibition.

Inspired by the earthy scents and golden colors of Autumn, the exhibition transports the visitor to far-away memories in an enchanting ambiance that's spiced with wood, chestnuts, dry leaves, moist earth.

Description

See where it all began! Casa Vicens was Antoni Gaudí's first major commission, and its legacy can be felt throughout all of the master architect's finest work. It was built as a summer garden house for Manuel Vicens i Montaner, and kickstarted the Modernism movement in Europe. This fascinating museum is a living tribute to one of the greatest creative minds the world has ever known.

When a Catalonian stockbroker enlisted the skills of a young architect to design his holiday home, he couldn't have known the scale of the genius he was about to unleash. Inspired by patterns found in the natural world, the pastel-hued and intricately detailed miniature palace is as stunning today as it was in 1883.

Step inside Gaudí's mind and discover a technicolor tribute to his endless imagination. The renovated building has been repurposed as an architectural museum and cultural space, with two floors of meticulous design, and a truly exquisite rooftop terrace which offers amazing views of the surrounding area.

Don't miss the Mediterranean garden, dedicated to Saint Rita, and the cavernous Catalan vaults, which now house the La Capell bookshop – the perfect place to pick up a memento of your visit!
