The night of September 18 offers the opportunity to discover some new features in the collection, such as the first painting by Isidre Nonell, a landscape by Arenys de Mar, and works by Lluís Masriera, Marià Fortuny, Olga Sacharoff and photographer Mey Rahola. You can also visit the ongoing exhibitions, The Lost Mirror. Jews and Converts in the Middle Ages, Longaron and Friday Foster. An unexpected heroine, as well as the great exhibition dedicated to Suzanne Valadon.

Live music and a special gastronomic offer will transport us to the Paris of the Belle Époque and the world of this extraordinary French artist.

Thanks to the collaboration of the department of cultural and musical studies of the ESMUC, the Original Sound Track Orchestra will interpret themes that recall the popular success of variety shows in France and throughout Europe. In addition, visitors will be able to participate in a Cakewalk workshop, a dance related to Ragtime that originated in the plantations of the southern United States and reached Europe around 1900. Throughout the Night, the Marxing Band of the Workshop of Musicians will play in different areas of the Museum.

A Night dedicated to education and research

This year the Night and the International Day of Museums coincide on May 18 and are dedicated to 'Museums, for education and research'. Educating through art means using its potential to help build critical thinking, talk about current issues, and also evoke an era or an artist from new points of view. As ICOM reminds us, the Museum is an ideal place to foster learning, to help us understand ourselves and the world around us. In this sense, the work of education and mediation professionals is essential for a museum. It is necessary to claim it and also to increase its recognition and value.
