”la Caixa” Foundation announces its cultural programme for the 2022-2023 season: 30 shows at CaixaForum centres and the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, and 8 travelling exhibitions touring Spain and Portugal. Of the 38 shows, 10 will be seen for the first time.

The programme invites audiences on a journey into the heart of archaeology, art, science, photography, comics and film through activities organised in cooperation with major international institutions such as the British Museum, the Science Museum of London and Boston Museum of Science.

The outstanding novelties include a scientific examination of how Pixar characters are created, a study of all the facets of nineteenth-century portrait painting in cooperation with the Prado National Museum, a journey through the history of experimental photography under the guidance of the Centre Pompidou, an introduction to the most cinematographic spies with La Cinémathèque Française, and a visit to the private collections of major artists represented in ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection.

At CaixaForum Madrid, which will host science exhibitions for the first time, the season opens with a show devoted to the extraordinary inventor Nikola Tesla. Diving deeper into the links between art and science, the programme also includes an exhibition of National Geographic photographs devoted to the theme of colour at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, and a travelling show illustrating the beauty of the nanocosmos.

In a season marked by the fusion of technology and culture, other highlights include the launch of three major initiatives. These are: the new CaixaForum+ digital platform; the interactive guide in the Universe Room at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum; and the Vertical Forest at CaixaForum Barcelona.
