Suñol Foundation

Fundació Suñol

The third house along Passeig de Gràcia after the Pedrera and Vinçon store is maybe smaller than the first two, but is nevertheless interesting. Opened in a renovated 19th century building in 2007, it is a private contemporary arts center based on the collection of Josep Suñol, son of Josep Suñol i Garriga, the president of FC Barcelona and a Catalan politician murdered by the Francoists in 1936.

The collection comprises more than 1,200 exhibits and includes masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Man Ray, Alberto Giacometti, Eduardo Chillida, Richard Avedon and Henry Moore. The foundation chronologically displays paintings, graphics, photographs and sculptures (mainly those created by Spanish artists) and holds regular temporary exhibitions.

The Nivell Zero space is designed to host lectures, master classes, conferences and poetry readings which aim to attract attention to the modern art, though there are plenty of aficionados. The center has a standard design with white walls, high ceilings with minimum interior details.
