INAUGURATION OF THE EXHIBITION "CÁTEDRA GAUDÍ" AT THE "ILLA DIAGONAL"
Given its special location in the Illa Diagonal shopping centre, the exhibition is expected to attract a huge affluence of visitors.
The presentation will count on the intervention of Professor Joan Bassegoda, Director of the Reial Càtedra Gaudí, Daniel Giralt-Miracle, Commissioner of the International Gaudí Year 2002 and Eduard Solé, Chairman of the Gaudí & Barcelona Club association.
The Reial Càtedra Gaudí, linked to the University of Barcelona and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, possesses a considerable documental and graphic archive, a library housing more than 15,000 volumes and a Museum of Architecture which forms part of the International Council of Architectural Museums.
On the occasion of the International Gaudí Year, the Cátedra has loaned a number of pieces to exhibitions held in the Barcelona Centre for Contemporary Culture, the National Art Museum of Catalonia, the Caixa de Catalunya Foundation, the Santa Mónica Art Centre, the Picasso Museum, the International University of Catalonia and the Reina Sofía National Museum Art Centre in Madrid. Now, with this exhibition, it has decided to exhibit some of its most valued pieces.
The Gaudí & Barcelona Club association is a non-profit entity created to disseminate the life and work of Antoni Gaudí. The association's starting point was the creation, in 1997, of the Club in the web-page www.gaudiclub.com which you can join free of charge, enabling you to receive the latest information on all topics related with Gaudí and his life. The club currently boasts 6,000 members worldwide.
