”la Caixa” Social Outreach Programmes presents the activities at its social and cultural centre in Barcelona for the 2010-2011 season. The programme is designed to be all-embracing, accessible, with something for all audiences.

 

Over the coming season, CaixaForum Barcelona will host two major exhibitions focusing on other cultures. The first will enable visitors in Spain to admire the finest treasures from Saudi Arabia for the very first time, in a show organised under an agreement that CaixaForum signed with the Louvre Museum in 2009 to cooperate in organising a series of exhibitions. The second will feature veritable jewels from Teotihuacan, the largest pre-Hispanic city to be built.

 

For the first time, moreover, works from the Fundación ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection will be shown together with loans from other Catalan institutions in a major exhibition on Spanish art from the 1950s and 60s, featuring pieces by Tŕpies, Dalí and Picasso. More recent art will also be represented, in a show exploring the powerful influence of the cinema and the image in contemporary culture.

 

The new programme focuses particularly on late-19th and early-20th century art, with a major show devoted to the portrait and featuring works by Manet, Sorolla, Munch, Kokoschka and Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as an in-depth review of avant-garde Soviet architecture and art from the 1920s and 30s.

 

This year, the ”la Caixa” Social Outreach Programmes’ Social and Cultural Centre will also increase the number of activities aimed at all audiences, with talks on current affairs, history, poetry and the cinema, as well as an extensive music programme committed, more than ever, to promoting ancient music, as well as world and experimental music.
