Last Monday, October 9th, we celebrated an event on the occasion of the pre-opening of the MACBA Collection. Beneath the surface exhibition in which the new catalogue of the Collection was presented, within the setting of the 30th anniversary of the MACBA Foundation.

We counted with the participation of the Board of Trustees of the MACBA Foundation, directors of museums and cultural institutions, gallerists and the media, who made a very positive coverage.

Firstly, we arranged a guided tour to the exhibition by Antònia Ma Perelló, Curator of the exhibition, and Ferran Barenblit, the director of MACBA.
Next, we presented the new publication MACBA Collection. A selection, which includes 193 relevant works from the museum’s holdings and a detailed chronology of the genesis of the museum.
 
MACBA Collection. Beneath the surface includes more than thirty works that cover the abstract forms with a political and personal content, and in which, beneath the idea of surface, memory and intimacy prevail, referring to issues such as the disappearance or the pass of time.
