Open Works. Art in Movement, 1955-1975

This exhibition, organized by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, brings together an important selection of works by 37 international artists who, in the 1950s and 1960s in Europe, serched a profound transformation in the role of the spectator. This artistic movement was called "kinetic art" for promoting the participation of the viewer with the work of art. Most of the works demand interaction of the spectator, in one way or another. On some occasions he will have to touch, in others blow, or as in the case of "Bariestesia", by Gianni Colombo, where he will have to go up and down inclined stairs and thus become aware of the instability of reality. Another example is the "Chromosaturation" by Carlos Cruz-Díez, an installation of rooms designed to provoke in the spectator the effect of chromosaturation by the continuous exposure to different colors; this effect makes the viewer perceive space as a target even though it is not.

Maybe not and all are always prevacational syndromes: we count the months that are left for the next holidays or the days that are left for the next getaway. By adjusting the system a bit, redirecting the energy of the warp engine to the conventional engine, we have started up. The result, here you have it. In this new season that begins we hope to inform you as always of the events that help you complete your agenda, to discover exhibitions, concerts, film festivals and unforgettable experiences, many times without spending money.

Holidays, through the streets of Gràcia and Sants, and legends of Symphonic Rock

The north of Europe has burned, as well the south. And beyond. The thermometer rises steadily and paddle surfers have moved to the lakes of Siberia. Meanwhile, a handful of scientists monitor the permafrost of the tundra. The signing of international treaties is no longer worth as much as before, and strike here, strike there. Nevertheless, with the appearance or the certainty that the world swings on a tightrope, we go on vacation.
