The European Museum of Modern Art , MEAM, exhibits the finest Contemporary Figurative Art. It is owned by TheFoundation of Arts and Artists, and the purpose is to promote and diffuse Figurative Art of the 20th and 21st Centuries. The Foundation’s claim is to find a new contemporary language without denying tradition by progressing into the new Century. Moreover, the Foundation of Arts and Artists, organizes each year the Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Awards, and with the wesbiteFigurativas en Red opens a window with the artworks of the Contemporary Figurative artists. The MEAM is currentlly located at the Gomis Palace, in the middle of the streets of the Born in Barcelona, a neighborhood where culture is always present and reflects the charm of the old part of the city, an area that knew how to mix tradition and modernity, becoming a requiered visit for the tourits interested in the Monumental Barcelona. The MEAM is different from other Contemporary Art museums because it houses living artists who created Figurative Art. These artworks are hardly seen in other museums, collections or entities, to whom the word Contemporary is identified by experiment and abstraction.

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this gallery so we decided to give it a go (especially since the Picasso lines were so long and this was just nearby with no lines). It was a very large gallery which was surprising - the actual building...More

What a beautiful little museum right around the corner from the famous Picasso Museum. This is a gem well worth visiting if you appreciate excellent work that is realistic in a more classically trained sense. We visited several times and enjoyed an evening of music...More

Fifth visit to Barcelona - and still I'm finding new and interesting museums. MEAM focuses on modern art, with an emphasis on paintings that are so well crafted that they almost seem to be photographs. Mainly paintings, some sculptures and a few mixed media. Many...More

A little museum with lots of contemporary (mostly erotic and body-oriented) art. Eclectic, very much liked it. But actually the most interesting part -and was drew our attention in the first place- was the cafe-concerts they organize throughout the summer every Saturday (I believe). 30'...More

When going into this modern art museum, you're not going to get something which looks like a 10 year old was let loose with crayons and then charged a million. The gallery is packed full of skillful and highly accurate depictions of modern life, or...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

There are modern artists there. I recommend Istvan Sandorfi, who represents hyperrealism.
