Madrid, the vibrant capital of Spain, sets a high mark for culture and nothing is more interesting than the city’s world-class museums. In this multi-part series, we’ll start with the Museum Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.
Reina Sofia is Spain’s majestic modern art museum. They are currently planning a large modification and restoration project throughout the interior and exterior of the building, while also making a large investment in new art acquisitions. A recently-opened series of sixth floor terraces will host a series of happenings, poetry readings and dance performances that are free to the public.
As far as exhibitions, there is a major retrospective of Julio González (a prominent 20th century sculptor) running through June 1st. Paul Thek shows his American cult art and Eulàlia Valldosera presents her conceptual material, both through April 20th. Other upcoming shows include sculptures by Paul Sietsema and Juan Muñoz and multimedia installations by Fischli and Weiss.
After seeing these shows, hungry art lovers can enjoy lunch at the museum’s restaurant, presided over by Sergi Arola, one of Madrid’s most inventive chefs. For more information, please visit the Reina Sofia Museum, click here.
