THIS THURSDAY ES BALUARD IS HOLDING AN OPEN DAY TO CELEBRATE THE

This Thursday 12 October, Es Baluard is holding an open day during its normal winter opening hours, from 10 am to 8 pm, to celebrate "El Día de la Hispanidad".

Visitors can take advantage of the free entrance to see Jaume Plensa's installation Jerusalem, whose exhibition will end this Sunday. The artist has created specially for the Museum's Aljub Room a kind of scenography by using sculptural elements with musical resonances that completely metamorphose our perception of space. In each of the sculptures you can read words from the Song of Songs, in a call to the senses, to eroticism and the exaltation of life. The installation involves the visitor him or herself as they make the Aljub vibrate and fill with almost ancestral sounds.

Visitors can also see on Floor -1 a new presentation of the permanent collection  corresponding to the years 1990-2005, with works by Erró, Joan Brossa, Jean Michel Basquiat, Fabrizio Plessi, Rebecca Horn, Ramon Canet and Miguel Angel Campano, among others.
