Exclusive for Friends of the CCCB

Guided tour to the exhibition dedicated to the artist Hermen Anglada Camarasa at the MNAC, lead by the curators Pilar Cuerva and Eduard Vallès.

Hermen Anglada Camarasa (Barcelona, 1871 - Port de Pollença, 1959) was an artist in a bohemian era, who managed and controlled his career with great devotion. This is demonstrated in his personal archive, donated to the Museu Nacional by his family and inventoried at the Museum’s Research and Knowledge Centre. This donation coincides with the 150th anniversary of the artist's birth and, as an activity, is part of the celebrations of the Anglada Camarasa Year.

The exhibition "Anglada Camarasa. The premeditated archive" is an unprecedented opportunity to discover all the facets of his personality through archives created by the artist himself. The exhibition links the collection’s archives to a selection of works by Anglada Camarasa, with a museography in which the space of the archive is recreated. In this exhibition, the public will also discover the relevance of his work and the creative process of Anglada Camarasa, the Catalan artist with the greatest international projection between the eras of Marià Fortuny and Joan Miró.
