Tour Barcelona's Contemporary Art
Delight in the works of the greatest artists of the past 20 years, in galleries and in the streets.
Barcelona has a long-running reputation as a city where avant-garde architects and artists work, live and find inspiration, each indelibly leaving his or her mark. Over the past century, Picasso, Gaudí, Miró and Dalí have become household names, and have helped in paving the way for the onslaught of contemporary artists who would later tackle large-scale projects of their own in this remarkable city. Known particularly for its “urban art,” many consider Barcelona to be an open-air museum, complete with countless whimsical, larger-than-life sculptures, mosaics, murals and graffiti. Walking through the streets, you can stumble upon works by many of the Greats: Botero, Lichtenstein, Chillida, Oldenburg, Mariscal, Brossa, Oteiza & the list goes on.
In addition to the widespread public art, there are innumerable museums, galleries, and private foundations; enough to satisfy all tastes and styles, from traditional to cutting edge… Barcelona has it all.
We invite you to turn yourselves over to our art connoisseur for a day, and discover Barcelona’s wonderfully eclectic collection of contemporary art. Please let us know what types of art you’d like to see, so that we can tailor the perfect route for you.
You’ll want to let us know things like… Are you more interested in modern art? Or contemporary? Would you like to roam the streets discovering urban masterpieces? Or, would you prefer to go through galleries and museums? Are you hoping to find something to take home, or just looking? What types and styles of art would you like your tour to include?
Personally designing this type of itinerary is a task that takes time and thought. The further in advance you contact us, the more time we’ll have to organize and customize your route.
This experience depends greatly on you and your interests.
