On-site commentary, from 8pm to 11 pm.

The works to be discussed on this occasion will be from the exhibition dedicated to Antoni Campañà, the installation by Francesc Torres and the new rooms dedicated to the Civil War.

Temporary exhibitions and displays

A new look at the collection through the exhibition of a selection of nineteen artworks of contemporary art by the Fundació Suñol, the artists Evru/Zush, Joan Brossa, Carmen Calvo, Eduardo Chillida, Lucio Fontana, Susana Solano and Antoni Tàpies. These artworks enter into dialogue, by way of analogy or contrast, with historical works of medieval, Renaissance, Baroque or modernist art.

Retrospective exhibition that allows us to get to know the work of the photographer Antoni Campañà Bandranas in its full dimension. Through more than 300 photographs, we discover the personality and multiple facets of this author, and for the first time, we can admire in the rooms of a museum a selection of the photographs of the so-called Red Box, where Campañà wanted to close the tragedy lived during the war, immortalized in thousands of images of the conflict.

This exhibition offers a new approach to the artistic relations between Catalonia and Japan through ceramics by presenting two great ceramists of the 20th century: Josep Llorens Artigas (1892-1980) and Hamada Shōji (1994-1978), Japanese Living National Treasure.

Installation by the artist Francesc Torres in the museum's Oval Room of two 1:1 scale replicas of two model aeroplanes that took part in the Spanish Civil War.
