Explore Barcelona’s Visual Culture at Exhibition – A Cop d’Ull
Palau de La Virreina
If you are visiting Barcelona and find yourself on the popular Las Ramblas, why don’t you venture off the busy promenade and check out exhibition A Cop d’Ull at La Virreina just by La Boqueria market.
Much has been documented about the power of the image, the way it changes in it’s surroundings, how it is interpreted by people from different backgrounds, ages etc and how we translate visual discourse in general. This exhibition offers beautiful glimpses of Barcelona as far as the 1950s via a variety of visual means.
Explore Barcelona from a different perspective by discovering complex relationships between the city and it’s people and the way in which it evokes an interesting story.
A Cop d’Ull aims to assess the city’s scene with displays of recent work by a range of contemporary practitioners and key photographers, inviting you to question what visual culture is in Barcelona. On until Tuesday to Sunday and public holidays, noon to 8pm.
