MACBA: Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona

Another art-centric Barcelona post courtesy of MACBA: Museu d’Art Contemporary de Barcelona aka Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona! I spent another afternoon out and about obsessively taking about a thousand photos of the city and at MACBA. What a scene! Holy smokes, there were so many skateboarders outside, I swear I almost got run over a couple time. Just google “MACBA Barcelona skateboarders” and there are so many photos! Also, this place smelled like.. home.. aka Vancouver;)

So now that that’s out of the way.. is the inside of the gallery worth visiting? In my opinion, I loved it. But then again, I love art and I’m a student so it only cost me 7 euros. Not sure on the regular price of admission. They had a really cool photography exhibit on the first floor showing street photography of Barcelona from the 1950’s. So if you’re into that, definitely worth a visit. Also, there were some other cool things to see. I loved the light installation I showed in the photos. Don’t remember the artists name though.

Also, this quote:

“Form poses a problem which appeals to the utmost resources of our intelligence, and it affords the means which charm our sensibility and even entice us to the verge of frenzy. Form is never trivial or indifferent; it is the magic of the world.”

Albert M. Dalq, ‘Form and Modern Embryology’, Growth and Form catalogue, 1951

Yay, science!
