Elisa Durán, Deputy General Director of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, and Sir Richard Lambert, Chairman of the Trustees of the British Museum, have signed an agreement to cooperate in the organisation of four extraordinary exhibitions to be shown in ”la Caixa” venues in Spain between 2016 and 2020.

Elisa Durán, Deputy General Director of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, and Sir Richard Lambert, Chairman of the Trustees of the British Museum, have signed an agreement to cooperate in the organisation of four extraordinary exhibitions to be shown in ”la Caixa” venues in Spain between 2016 and 2020.


Thanks to this new agreement between the two institutions, the eight CaixaForum centres managed by ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation will host four major exhibitions, jointly organised and showcasing  collections from  the British Museum.


The first exhibition resulting from this cooperation will be Medieval Europe: Power and Legacy, which will open at the CaixaForum centres in Madrid, Barcelona and Zaragoza in 2016 and 2017. This show will enable visitors to learn about some of the key events during the thousand-year period that was the Middle Ages in Europe.


Next, Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes will visit Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Palma and Zaragoza. The exhibition focuses on competition, a key element in Hellenistic culture.


The third exhibition, Pharaohs: Kings of Egypt introduces visitors to three thousand years of Egypt’s ancient history by unveiling its famous leaders: the Pharaohs.


The programme of exhibitions will conclude in 2020 with another major show, possibly on the Phoenicians, similarly drawn from the great collections of Ancient civilisations.
