Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) is an internationally recognized architect whose figure, sometimes turned into a brand, has become loaded with clichés. This exhibition presents a review of the Catalan architect, a complex character who carries out his work in the context of certain political, ideological and aesthetic strategies. Gaudí was not an isolated and misunderstood genius, and in this exhibition they try to demonstrate this by moving away from clichés and going through his entire career as a creator. For this, the exhibition uses theatricality and the accumulation of objects, as if it were Gaudí's workshop. In the exhibition you will see more than 650 elements (architectural, design and furniture objects, documentation, photographs and maps) from a hundred national and international collections, including that of the MNAC, which has an important set of works by the architect. The exhibition, which can be seen at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris from March 14 to July 17, 2022, places Gaudí in the international perspective of the time with works by Geoffroy-Dechaume, Thomas Jeckyll, William Morris, Auguste Rodin and Eugène Viollet-le-Duc.
With the ticket price you can also visit the permanent collection and the terrace of the MNAC, and the narration of the exhibition with the voice of the actor Josep Maria Pou is included.
