Yesterday CloudGuide was at the Fundació Joan Miró and we are very happy to share this experience with all of you. We stayed there the whole morning  introducing the app and all the featured guides to their visitors. It was great!

Visitors were delighted with the possibility of enjoying the guide of new Miro's Foundation exhibition, 'Miró and the Object'. Also, users were able to do the self guided tour around the sculpture garden that is surrounding the museum.

Agenda CloudGuide Week October 5th-11th

Here we come again with our CloudGuide Agenda to spot your days with the most interesting and suggestive art events and cultural appointments.

Check what we have chosen this time for you:

  • Why Not Judy Chicago? Is opening next October 8th. Curated by Xabier Arakistain, the exhibition Why Not Judy Chicago? at Azkuna Zentroa presents a selection of works and documents that provide an overview of over 50 years of production by this pioneer of feminist art. By looking at the close relationship between her work as an artist, art educator, and writer, the exhibition proposes a holistic approach to her career, inasmuch as it retains, with the intention of transforming, the different instances that structure art institutions.  
  • Goya. The Portraits is another top exhibition you shouldn’t miss this season at londonier The National Gallery. Striking and often unforgiving, Goya’s portraits demonstrate his daringly unconventional approach and remarkable skill at capturing the psychology of his sitters. It will be opening next Thursday 7th.
  • Danh Vō (Banish the Faceless / Reward your Grace) is the surprise of the week. As it is warned in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía website, Danh Vō utilises 21st-century industrial exhibition typology to portray the unique architecture in the Palacio de Cristal, encapsulating the nostalgia of a nineteenth-century palaeontology and archaeology museum inside a large display cabinet.  But this is just a clue. Find out the whole puzzle at Palacio de Cristal at El Retiro Park in Madrid and you will fall in love with it just like we did!
  • And our last call this time goes to 'Agnes Martin' exhibiton at the Tate, this is the last week to visit it!

Every year in September, the 50 signatory States to the European Cultural Convention take part in the European Heritage Days – a joint action of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, putting new cultural assets on view and opening up historical buildings normally closed to the public. The cultural events highlight local skills and traditions, architecture and works of art, but the broader aim is to bring citizens together in harmony even though there are differences in cultures and languages.

CloudGuide joins this year this great event as the official app for Generalitat de Catalunya,  proud to be chosen to engage citizens to the awesome agenda of activities that will be taking place next weekend, starting on October the 9th, with one main objective: discovering this powerful and magnificent legacy throught culture and enjoying with it.

Without awareness of beauty, innocence and happiness, one cannot make works of art’

This is how we start this week in CloudGuide, a full inspirational thought by Agnes Martin, who will be finishing her exhibition soon at Tate, that we have chosen to bright up our agenda highlights for this weekend. Take a look and enjoy!

 

  • 'Edvard Munch. Love, Death, and Loneliness' is the new exhibition at the Albertina Museum, just opened last week. Known as one of the foremost protagonists of modernism, Edvard Munch’s paintings and graphic works are among the absolute highlights of turn-of-the-century art. This exhibition, featuring around 100 of the Norwegian artist’s most important works, will include icons of his art such as The Scream, Madonna, The Kiss, and Melancholy, as well as works exemplifying his experimental approaches to printed graphics. A must if you are visiting the austrian capital these days.
  • Barcelona welcomes this week a new rendez-vous with art throught the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, the first edition for this event joining some of the most well known galleries at the city. Starting the 1st of October, more than 21 art spaces are opendoors to visitors and artlovers.
  • Have you visited 'Agnes Martin' exhibition yet? The american Agnes Martin is perhaps most recognised for her evocative paintings marked out in subtle pencil lines and pale colour washes. There are only two weeks more to visit her retrospective at Tate.
  • And last but no least of our selected suggestion of the week is a surprise that comes out from one of our CloudGuide partners in Barcelona, Casa Batlló, a modernist top artworks of the world which amazed us last week during Barcelona’s Mercé, the city festivity where art, culture and amusement celebrates together.
