PAINTING. A PERMANENT CHALLENGE
27.06.2019 // 29.09.2019
Painting occupies a prominent position in the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection. This exhibition aspires to rediscover the medium through the works made by a group of artists who have experimented radically with pictorial images and have established their own definitions of painting — in short, artists who have assumed the challenge of revising painting, continuing to give it meaning.
19.07.2018 // 21.10.2018
Starting with the state of sudden unrest created by turbulence, this exhibition explores the role of contemporary art in the face of the conflicts and instabilities that characterise our globalised world.
A Certain Darkness
19.06.2018 // 05.01.2019
One morning in August 1911, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre without anyone noticing. The painting remained missing for two years. However, far from deterring visitors, this absence had the opposite effect: crowds flocked to the museum to see the empty space on the wall.

Beneath the Arm: Between the Palm of the Hand and the Armpit
31.01.2018 // 20.05.2018
Around four years ago, artist Irene Grau told me that the dimensions of her Color Fields — the monochrome boards that she transported and photographed amidst nature — had two limitations: the length of the load of her van and the maximum width she was able to carry under her arm, between the palm of her hand and her armpit. Let’s imagine for a moment that the size of many of the landscapes created in a specific historical period was determined only by a limitation contained in the title of this project.
H(a)unting Images: Anatomy of a Shot
06.10.2017 // 07.01.2018
The invention proudly announced by French physiologist Étienne-Jules Marey in 1882 followed in the same line as other chronophotographic devices from the late 19th century. Designed to analyse the different phases of moving bodies, these devices expanded the possible ways of representing reality and extended the scope of sight beyond the range of the human eye.

27.05.2017 // 03.09.2017
This exhibition brings together two works, separated by thirty years, created by pioneer video artist Tony Oursler. Both works experiment with illusionistic visual effects and explore supernatural beliefs.
