The COAC Historical Archive is collaborating with the ‘Antoni Gaudí. Barcelona’ exhibition at the MMOMA
The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) and the company Aurea Cultura are organising the exhibition entitled ‘Antoni Gaudí. Barcelona’, which can be seen between 22 May and 10 September in the Russian capital. The Moscow museum is displaying around 150 pieces including plans, drawings, models, photos and furniture in four themed areas, with the aim of providing clear and educational insight into Gaudí as an architect and his world.
The COAC’s Historical Archive has loaned 11 wide-format photos from that period to the exhibition, taken for the Arxiu Mas, each with a short description written in very beautiful ornamental calligraphy. The images were originally intended for a tribute that the former Architects’ Association of Catalonia paid to Gaudí in 1927 on the first anniversary of the death of the brilliant architect.
This exhibition also enjoys the support of the Spanish Embassy in Moscow. In addition to the collaboration of the COAC’s Historical Archive, other Catalan institutions have also loaned material.
