The most complete retrospective of ceramics that has been made so far around Miquel Barceló!

The Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera presents the work of Miquel Barceló (Felanitx, Mallorca, 1957) is one of the most notable figures on the contemporary art scene.

A painter, sculptor and sketcher, Barceló began to create using clay in 1994 during a trip to Mali when strong winds made it impossible for him to paint and draw because his works ended up covered in dust. As a result, he began to experiment using this material that was new to him, which influenced him and affected core aspects of his work. Barceló’s ceramic pieces are thus a kind of extension of his painting.

The exhibition at Casa Milà-La Pedrera, organised chronologically, charts Barceló’s artistic career over three decades, from his first works produced in Africa in 1994 to his more recent pieces. The show is complemented with paintings and works on paper related to the ceramic exhibits, and also includes a bronze sculpture installed in the courtyard of La Pedrera.
