Barcelona's French Institute is hosting an exhibition on the artist's Parisian itinerary.
The prestige of Josep Maria Subirachs has continued to grow since his death in 2014, thanks to the documentation brought to light by researchers and to the general public who visit his well-known monuments and attend the exhibitions held featuring his work.
The latest of these is titled Subirachs, un Abécédaire and aims to trace the symbolic and Parisian/French itinerary of the artist responsible for the Passion Façade of the Sagrada Familia. Using his identifying figures, his libraries and his wordless stories, the exhibition introduces us to the artist's lesser known intimate and personal side, in contrast to the iconic sculptures that fill Barcelona's cityscape.
The previously unseen selection of artefacts that make up the exhibition should be read like an alphabet: an itinerary that goes from letter to letter to reveal a world that is both private and unique.
Subirachs, un Abécédaire
When: 13 January to 26 February
