Exploring Art in Barcelona

Art Capitals

Intriguing mix of high and low art

The legacies of Picasso, Dalí, and Miró loom large in Barcelona. But Spain’s most famous artists are hardly the only visionaries to have left their mark on the Catalonian capital. Contemporary artists like Susana Solano and Jordi Colomer keep the city humming with edgy sculptures and audiovisual installations, while graffiteros animate each neighborhood with colorful, provocative street art. Galleries abound, featuring everything from experimental upstarts to international art stars. The result is an intriguing mix of high and low art, with something to entrance every eye.

Iconic representations of the Modernisme movement

Join etr as we explore Barcelona’s ever-changing art scene. We’ll visit the iconic representations of the Modernisme movement, including the lively façades of the l’Eixample district, Montaner’s Palau de la Música Catalana, and Gaudí’s stunning Sagrada Família cathedral. The city’s unparalleled museums offer more insight into Catalonian art, both modern and contemporary: as we explore the Fundació Joan Miró, the Museu Picasso, and the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, we’ll begin to understand how the rich Catalonian culture has informed the creative process for so many artists.
Greater lessons await us in the city’s bustling parks and public spaces, where countless sculptures and avant-garde installations reveal that long after Gaudí’s heyday, Catalonian creativity still knows no bounds – a fact that would make the Modernistas proud.
