The MEAM is located in the Palau Gomis, a unique 18th-century neoclassical building in the Born district, which is one of Barcelona’s key tourist and cultural sites.
The Fundació de les Arts i els Artistes has founded the MEAM, Museu Europeu d’Art Modern, as a showcase for its collections. The Foundation’s mission is to give impetus to and disseminate figurative art, and, more specifically, painting and sculpture from the late 19th century to the present day. The Foundation’s holdings will be the focus of the MEAM’s displays, although temporary exhibitions are planned in order to ensure it generates a dynamic and attractive programme of events.Temporary Exhibitions
