Welcome to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, a space for discovery and shared knowledge in Barcelona’s Raval neighbourhood!
Come and visit a collection of iconic pieces that represent key moments in the past century of art, culture and society. Take part in a wide range of exhibits and activities where you can share common experiences and knowledge with others through the bold, unconventional points of view art provides. Visit an inspiring space for learning about, experimenting with and enjoying contemporary art. This is a meeting point that helps build a freer society with a critical spirit.
The MACBA Collection focuses on art from the second half of the 20th century to the present day. However, it begins with selected works from the avant-garde of the 1920s to establish its central core around 1968, a date that radically transformed the paradigm of contemporary art. The Collection builds a model that allows us to understand today’s world and shape a critical memory of the art of the last ninety years, without losing sight of the specific cultural and political reality of Barcelona.
Get ready to be inspired by the power of Art!
