CaixaForum Barcelona will launch its new season with a spectacular project that will transport visitors to the world of opera. Through eight premieres in eight cities and eight crucial moments in the history of Europe, the new show will review the birth and development of the opera as a form of total creation that brings together all the arts. An immersive and exciting experience organised jointly with the Victoria and Albert Museum of London and in cooperation with Barcelona’s great opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

The first exhibition organised jointly by ”la Caixa” and the Pompidou Centre will open in October. The Camera and the City explores urban photography from the early-20th century to the present through works from the French museum and some of the most outstanding collections of Spanish photography.

The Prado Museum will be another leading name in the new season. The exhibition Art and Myth: Gods at the Prado will suggest a new gaze at classical mythology and how it has been represented in the history of art through paintings, sculptures and medallions from the Madrid museum by such great artists as Rubens, Ribera and Zurbarán.

Then, next summer, vampires will colonise CaixaForum Barcelona. Organised in cooperation with Cinémathèque Française, the exhibition Vampires will explore popular culture’s fascination with those terrifying, iconic figures, tracing their evolution: from painting, photography and literature to film and television. Illustrated by more than 400 works by artists including Warhol and Goya.

Objects of Desire will examine the mutual influences between surrealism and design over the last century, a little-explored theme, in a show presented at CaixaForum Barcelona by the Vitra Design Museum.

And ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection will be permanently present throughout the season with a cycle of three exhibitions presented by emerging curators.
