Until 28th August 2016 at the François Miterrand Library (BNF)

Soon to turn 60, Miquel Barceló is still bursting with energy. He is currently inaugurating two major exhibitions in Paris, at the National Library of France (BNF) and at the Picasso Museum (Musée Picasso). The Catalan artist has built an abundant body of work drawing inspiration from sources going back to prehistoric cave painting, and all the way forward to great Masters such as Goya, Picasso or Kiefer.


The exhibition presented at the François Mitterrand library focuses on Barceló‘s graphic and printed works. Only few of the engravings, lithographs, screen prints and rubbings exhibited have ever been shown before. Hence it is with great pleasure that we find ourselves surrounded by the subjects so dear to this artist such as metamorphoses, self-portraits or bullfights, created in earthly shades, and black and white.

A stimulating ride.
