About the Museum

This vibrant and dynamic venue situated on Plaça dels Àngels sets the pace for contemporary art in the region. The rigorously progressive curatorial programme does not shy away from cutting-edge controversies, yet maintains an impeccably strong collection of classic Modern art. One major emphasis is on post-1945 Catalan and Spanish works. Postwar international giants include Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt and Robert Rauschenberg. Stars of subsequent generations are also well represented, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gerhard Richter, Jeff Wall, Dara Birnbaum and Dieter Roth, to name a few. Nicknamed 'the pearl' for its sleek design amidst Gothic surroundings, this dazzling structure by New York City-based architect Richard Meier outwardly reflects its very contemporary interior.
