Art in Barcelona: must-see exhibitions
Darío Villalba. Dry resplendence
Darío Villalba, a key figure in the art of the 1950s, has developed some very personal photographic works. The images extracted from archives and magazines, or made by the artist himself are out of context, fragmented and modified, whether with pictorial gestures or by manipulating the photographic technique. This solo exhibition, curated by Villalba himself, brings together works from the Suñol Foundation and from other sources.
Miss Van. Flor de Piel
French artist Miss Van, who has developed a large part of her artistic life in Barcelona, where she currently resides, started her career in 1993, when she was just 20 years old, creating street murals as one of the pioneer women in the world of street art. Now she's exhibiting once again in Barcelona, where she hasn't had a show since 2005, with 'Flor de Piel', which includes some 20 works, some of them never before exhibited and others that were recently shown in the Centre of Contemporary Art (CAC) in Málaga.
1,000 m2 of desire
Real and imaginary spaces where sexuality occurs in Western culture are the focus of the exhibition '1,000 m2 of desire'. From the utopias of Sade, to the Parisian 'maisons closes', the radical architecture of the '60s, hippie communes, Playboy clubs... The exhibition, which brings together architects, artists and researchers, explores how architecture typifies roles and practices, models sexual behaviour and activates desire.
