Artur Ramon Art opens on May 19 at 7 p.m. Captivating beauty. Walking through the gardens of Artur Ramon Art. Curated by Ignacio Somovilla, the exhibition is a walk through the gardens through the history and gaze of artists, made in accordance with the latest edition of the series "Cinema and Garden" of the Filmoteca de Catalunya (June 13), with the participation of the MACBA and the Botanical Garden.

Through a hundred pieces from the Artur Ramon Art collection, a unique itinerary is proposed looking at the garden from different points of view: as an artistic creation or as a metaphor, satire or stage, as a moral state, as the last refuge of pleasure or paradise. And all this following the course of history, from the Garden of Eden, through the classical stage, the works of art influenced by the Grand Tour of the British elite of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, to the landscapers Catalans and the labyrinths of Josep Maria Subirachs. The tour of the art gardens ends with a small cabinet of botanically inspired wonders in a large closet that closes the sample and the furniture, vases, planters and other architectural elements that, placed at various points of the gallery, make up an intimate and varied garden of art.

The exhibition can be visited until July 22, 2022.
