Art in Barcelona: must-see exhibitions
David Bowie Is
This first international retrospective dedicated to David Bowie is produced by London's Victoria & Albert Museum and brings together some 300 objects from the artist's personal collection; it's a celebration of five decades of the iconic and innovative musician's career, and, indeed, of contemporary culture. Among other pieces, the exhibition displays special items such as Ziggy Stardust's outfits, album covers by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell, video performances such as 'The Man Who Fell to Earth', music videos, and some stage designs from Bowie's tours, in addition to other personal items, from set lists to journal notes that reveal his evolution as a creator.
World Press Photo
Barcelona's 13th edition of the World Press Photo exhibition is here. Organised in the city by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, the show features photos that have been given this prestigious international award for photojournalism. The migration crisis is still present in this year's edition, as are political conflicts, human mobility and the influence of technology on connectivity and information trafficking, as well as the impact of humans on the environment.
The Pillars of Europe. The Middle Ages at the British Museum
This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see the first exhibition to come out of the agreement between the social projects from 'la Caixa' and the British Museum. The aim of 'The Pillars of Europe...', which includes the period between 400 and 1500 AD, is to open a window on to the medieval world via the treasures and material culture of both the dominant elite and the classes of the people. The exhibition features more than 260 extraordinary objects from the British Museum collection, many of which had never previously been shown. You'll also find items on loan from the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid, the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC), and the Frederic Marès museum. These treasures help to explain crucial events, highlight famous figures, and show visitors different aspects of the era, such as royal life, war and conquest, as well as daily life.
