From Barcelona to Abu Dhabi: Works from the MACBA Art Collection in dialogue with the Emirates

An exhibition showcasing highlights from one of the most significant in Southern Europe - the MACBA collection from Barcelona - in dialogue with artworks by 20 Emirati artists. The exhibition proposes a journey that allows us to think about the role of art in contemporary life, in our cities and the way in which we relate to our natural environment. Finally, we will look at art itself, and its capacity to transmit ideas.

Organised by the Abu Dhabi Festival. Lead by MACBA’s Director, Ferran Barenblit, and in partnership with co-curator Nasser Abdullah, Chairman of the Emirates Fine Arts Society.
