- Antoni Fabrés. From 31st May to 29th September 2019: This exhibition aims to recover the work of a Catalan painter who was very successful during his lifetime. Fabrés cannot be pigeonholed within any specific movement, and although he painted the orientalist themes rendered by many artists in the 1880s and 1890s, he also produced many realist and naturalist works.
- El Víbora. Countercultural Comix. 21/6/19 to 29/9/2019: Ficomic and the museum are working together on the El Víbora project. Countercultural Comix is an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of the first issue of the magazine El Víbora hitting the newsstands. The exhibition includes an introduction to the origins of a publication that was part of the underground comic scene of the 1970s.
- Oriol Maspons. 5/7/19 to 12/01/20: Oriol Maspons played a crucial role in the renewal of photographic language in Spain in the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition looks at more than four decades of intense activity in the fields of reportage, portraiture, fashion and advertising, putting his output in context and researching into recovering documentary material to find out where Maspons’ photographs have ended up.
