Museu Can Framis opens its doors for us to visit the permanent exhibition Monòleg, diàleg i concepte and the temporary exhibition Fora de camp, by Isidre Manils. In addition, the proposal stands out for the collaboration with the NauART space, which has resulted in three installations that we will find in the Can Framis square:

Museu del Disseny:

The Museu del Disseny offers free admission to the permanent and temporary exhibitions:

 

Permanent exhibitions:

  • Common objects. Local stories, global debates.

Objects that deserve this adjective for other reasons: because they are part of popular culture, represent society and are part of the collective memory.

  • Do you design or do you work? The new visual communication (1980-2003).

The design boom, this exhibition explores a time of extraordinary vitality, euphoria and celebration.

  • Extraordinary! Collections of decorative arts (III-XIX centuries).

Exhibition that shows the chronological journey through the collections kept in the museum, including ceramics, textiles, furniture, glass, miniatures, clocks, and more.

  • Modernism, towards the culture of design.

  • The clothed body. Silhouettes and fashion (1550-2015).

Museu de la Música:

Other than open doors, the Museu de la Música also offers a few activities that are open to the public:

 

Aresta, by Marc Vilanova:

A sound and performative installation featuring an ensemble of autonomous saxophones, performing computer-generated music through algorithmic composition processes and the use of a neural network. It aims to reflect on automation, questioning the need for human presence on stage and the possible obsolescence of the performer.

Check out the time slots at this link.

MUT

A saxophone solo by Marc Vilanova that uses the instrument as a sound generator, creating a palette of sounds that goes far beyond our imagination. Without any electronic manipulation, the solo approaches the acoustic instrument and transforms it into totally digital sonorities. An intimate and delicate sound experience.
