Join us for a guided tour of the Look at Me!: Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection exhibition with the curator Nimfa Bisbe Molin. The tour will offer a unique insight to the works of the exhibition.

The exhibition Look at Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shape a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006).
