”la Caixa” Social and Cultural Outreach Projects presents the programme for CaixaForum Barcelona, its social and cultural centre in the city, for the 2011-2012 season. It also marks the celebration of the tenth year since it opened its doors in March 2002.

To commemorate the occasion, CaixaForum Barcelona will be holding major exhibitions of the work of two of the all-time greats. Through the Musée du Louvre, the city will be hosting the most important exhibition of the work of the great French painter Eugène Delacroix to be organised in forty years. Also, the first retrospective in Barcelona of the work of Francisco de Goya from the Museo del Prado collection will arrive to give continuity to the association between the two institutions.

The splendour of the Paris of the early 20th century will light up CaixaForum through the Impressionist paintings from the Clark Art Institute collection. Dance will also be on the agenda, with an exhibition about its role in sparking an artistic renaissance, exemplified by the Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev and his legendary company, the Ballets Russes.

The programme will also be paying special attention to architecture. A look at the work of Enric Sagnier, a key figure in the configuration of the Barcelona cityscape, will open the season, and it will close with an exhibition that examines the human ambition to touch the sky from the Tower of Babel to the dizziest buildings of today.

On its tenth anniversary, CaixaForum Barcelona will be increasing the number of activities aimed at all audiences so that, more than ever, it will be a meeting point for culture and the citizens.   CONDICIONES DE REPRODUCCIÓN DE LAS IMÁGENES - La reproducción de las imágenes debe ir acompañada del pie de foto / copyright correspondiente
