Xarxa de Museus d’Art bets on opening a space with online curatorships in order to offer new ways of dissemination of the museums’ collections that belong to it. Depending on each curator, this space will allow the construction of really diverse accounts and appear multiple adaptations from the whole collections. Now it will also disseminate the meaning and the value of the Catalonian joint art collection
Confined Eyes stages an emergency situation with the depositary archives of the museums. It answers a series of questions that I intuitively asked myself on the first month of confinement for Covid-19. The attempt to put images of what happened, with the hope placed in the works that have materialized during this period.
Treasures of remote lands
Women and men in the Middle Ages were fascinated by exotic objects. Trade routes favored the arrival of Byzantine icons, metalwork, goldsmithing, sculptures and paintings. Today, the XMAC museums present some of these remote earth treasures preserved in their collections.
Ways of saying I
It's not true that women haven't self-portrayed themselves. While they have been presented mostly as objects and rarely as subjects, when they have been placed in the place of creation, the question for the self has been one of their priorities, as this exhibition seeks to show.
A Visual Rhapsody
A visual rhapsody is a walk through some thirty works from the XMAC museums, which combines music and visual arts. In an eclectic and timeless journey and a structure close to a rhapsody, you will find angels, musicians, dancers, silences and harmonies hidden in the forms.
