JAUME PLENSA’S SOLO EXHIBITION AT MACBA, BARCELONA
More than two decades after the last solo exhibition of Jaume Plensa in Barcelona, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA) is currently paying homage to this artist by showing his works from the 1980s to the present.
This solo exhibition is not to be missed. With his creations, Plensa gives the visitor both aesthetic pleasure and food for thought. Using a variety of materials, he enquires into the human condition and deals with concepts such as memory, emotions and reason. He also questions the cultural and social order of our times and makes references to art, poetry, music and science.
Plensa is a Catalan sculptor with wide international profile, whose works are exhibited in public spaces in London, Chicago, Tokyo, Toronto and other prominent cities. Until recently, he was probably more renowned abroad than at home. However, his monumental “Carmela”, installed by the Palau de la Música in 2015, has definitely put him in the spotlight in “his” Barcelona.
