On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition "From Barcelona to Abu Dhabi", curated by Ferran Barenblit, director of MACBA, and held at the Manarat Al Saadiyat cultural center in Abu Dhabi, the MACBA Foundation organized a trip with our collaborators. The exhibition hosts more than seventy works from the MACBA Collection in dialogue with 20 works of artists form the Emirates, proposing a journey through the role of art in the contemporary world.

Other activities of cultural interest were included in the program, such as a private visit to the recently inaugurated Louvre Abu Dhabi. In Sharjah, the collaborators attended the private visit of the exhibition "Hassan Sharif: I Am The Single Work Artist", a retrospective on the work of the artist, writer, critic, and educator at the Sharjah Art Foundation. Subsequently they had the opportunity to visit the Collection of the Barjeel Art Foundation of the Maraya Art Center. To round off the trip, they went on a tour in Dubai through the most representative galleries of contemporary art.
