Thus, it is presented in Barcelona, the largest current exhibition of contemporary Representational Art between two continents. A celebratory that shows that the tradition is still alive in many artists that have no place in museums and contemporary art centers but now dispalyed to the public thanks to the union of these two private institutions that are committed to these artists. We invite you to join us for this unprecedented show that can be seen at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) until Juanuary 2016.
