7è Art (7th Art) Program (pdf - 1.26 Mb)


This year, we propose a program that explores the figure of the artist, the creative process, the link between art and society, museums, women in art and creators marginalized by official historiography. The Museu Nacional will be transformed into a cinema room open to anyone who wants to enter these themes through magic and the transporting power of the 7th art.

In June the LGBTI Pride is celebrated and from the Museu Nacional we want to pay homage to the artists who have fought for visibility with the projection of Ocaña, an Intermittent Portrait by Ventura Pons, one of the first LGBTI cinematographic documents of the State. The Catalan director goes through, from an unusual and ground-breaking perspective in 1978, the personality and work of the painter and performer José Pérez Ocaña, a key figure in the activism for sexual and gender freedom in post-Francoist Barcelona.
