Hg2 : The Hedonist

Museum of Modern Art

So much of Barcelona’s culture focuses on early 20th century, Spanish modernism and the work of the greats like Gaudi, Picasso et al. The Museum of Modern Art is a refreshing change, displaying ever-changing exhibitions of work created in the past fifty years – exhibitions that seek to represent the cultural and political climate of the city itself, although that isn’t always apparent. The atmosphere of the Museum is extremely tranquil with bare white walls, cascading windows and minimalist, modern art work across all media including photography, sculpture, film, video, audio art and text, alongside traditional painting and drawing. Set in the heart of Raval and designed by American architect Richard Meier, the building has really transformed this old quarter of Barcelona – an area that should definitely be checked out, but if you do it at night, take a taxi.
