La Pedrera

From 4 October 2024 to 2 February 2025

The exhibition will highlight the stone work of some of the most outstanding sculptors of the 20th century

The exhibition of the Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera celebrates the stone structure of Casa Milà - popularly known as La Pedrera - and places inside the building by Antoni Gaudí some of the late carvings of eight sculptors historical, born between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th: Hans Arp, Louise Bourgeois, Eduardo Chillida, Naum Gabo, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi and Jorge Oteiza, who were practically contemporaries; he describes his artistic paths, often parallel, to explore these new ways of expression, and points out points of convergence.

Apart from these abstract works, which will enter into a deep dialogue with La Pedrera, a complementary section allows us to see that the "pioneers" of modern sculpture have stimulated the next generation - Stephen Cox, Luciano Fabro, Barry Flanagan, Cristina Iglesias, Anish Kapoor, Ettore Spalletti and Alison Wilding—, and also that stone has inspired new conceptual ways of working.
