Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Spain
The Catalan Object in the Light of Surrealism

The Catalan Object in the Light of Surrealism
BARCELONA  •  Museu Nacional díArt de Catalunya  •  Ongoing

This exhibition of 50 works from museums in Spain and abroad is designed to show the public an important selection of the contributions that different Catalan artists made, in the 1930s, to the world of the object, a sphere of three-dimensional experimentation that, in keeping with the rupturist spirit of the avant-garde, makes a definitive break with the traditional way of understanding sculpture.

The MNACís exhibition presents, on one hand, works by two of the main players in this new adventure: Miró and Dalí and, on the other, important pieces by the main Catalan artists who in the 1930s, a time when Surrealism had already become widely accepted in Spain, made contributions to the world of the object: among them are Leandre Cristòfol, Àngel Ferrant, Antoni Clavé or Eudald Serra.
