Upcoming Events › Local art

The local art scene of Barcelona is marked by the strong interest in illustration and urban art, mainly driven by young galleries of recent years. Another great strength is video art, thanks to the influence of the Loop festival. Supporting this medium, there are several galleries that promote conceptual and political art, while the more established ones often opt for painting and figurative art. A special mention goes to the emerging art scene that every year produces new talents in their shows.

Dissent nostalgic – Joana Hurtado Matheu

2 March - 29 April
La Capella, Hospital, 56 08001 Barcelona  Spain + Google Map

There is a nostalgia that does not look back, that does not restore or exalt the past; a nostalgia that makes the most of hindsight to reflect on history, but from within, mindful that there is a need to dwell in this physical and temporal time difference, to recognise the interdependence between the individual and the group, and so re-establish the link between memory and utopia. Like an exile, who lives amid memories and dreams, there are presents in which…
