MACBA Collection: Beneath the Surface
Now on - Nov 4, 2018 (ends in 12 days)

This exhibition looks both inward and outward, asking how artists engage with the 'surface' throughout history. Beginning by scratching the surface of pictures, the MACBA takes the visitor on a journey through the possibilities and constraints of artistic forms, with dozens of works from the likes of Jean Dubuffet, Lucio Fontana, Dieter Roth and Antoni Tàpies.

If being confused by crazy art is your thing, you'll be comfortable in the mind-boggling MACBA. Head into Barcelona's huge contemporary arts museum and let your imagination unscramble both the permanent and temporary collections.

Art is a serious business at the mammoth MACBA, the big boss of Barcelona's contemporary arts scene. The permanent collection at MACBA boasts around 5,000 works from the mid-20th century onwards, across three periods - the 40s - 60s, 60s - 70s, and contemporary.

It's minimalistic and cool (seriously! They know how to pump the AC) and packed with amazing art in all forms. Skip the line and spend those extra hours soaking up art in air-conditioned comfort!

This museum has mostly videos, photos and contemporary installations. It's very interesting and definitely worth a visit.

They claim to be the best.contemporary art museum in spain. The Reina Sofia Contemplrary Art Center in Madrid gets that title hands down. It’s a nice museum though. Glad I went

The MACBA was, let's say, below expectation.
The Tiqets' service however was more than amazing . Never experienced a faster and more satisfying reply.
Bravo Tiqets !

The museum is nice but it is more about war and its consequence than about modern art. Mainly photographies and scientific documents.
