Less an exhibition and more of a long-term artistic project, Enthusiasm. Challenge and Obstinacy takes a refreshingly optimistic look at the contemporary experience, with engaging works by the likes of Ignasi Aballí, Vito Acconci, Maja Bajevic and Esther Ferrer that celebrate the creative potential of 'enthusiasm' in all its guises.
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.
Barcelona-born Jaume Plesna is predominantly a sculptor, although his work often crosses multimedia boundaries to incorporate aspects of literature, film and music. 20 years since his last exhibition in his home city, the MACBA presents a stunning retrospective of the Barcelona-born sculptor's life and work.
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!
