Miquel Barceló’s Solo Exhibition at Villa Paloma, NMNM, in Monaco

Publication about the artworld

Oceanographer Exhibition

On 7 June 2024, Villa Paloma, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, Monte Carlo, opened the exhibition of Miquel Barceló dedicated to seas and oceans.

Through a selection of some 60 artworks, including paintings, ceramics, embroidery, and works on paper, the exhibition revisits the prolific output of Miquel Barceló, an artist who has placed the sea at the heart of his work.
Embark on a journey from the origins of life to the evocation of a human presence behind his seascapes, the bestiary and numerous still lifes inherited from the bodegón tradition, through to powerful wave compositions and ceramics inspired by Antiquity.

The exhibition unites the oeuvre of the contemporary painter with an echo to the history of oceanography highly appreciated and cherished in the Principality of Monaco.
