Fundació Suñol

A space to discover the latest artistic creations

Hola Barcelona, your travel solution

Fundació Suñol exhibits one of Barcelona’s largest contemporary art collections. Located at Passeig de Gràcia, 98, the foundation has a collection of more than 1,200 works of art, including pieces by Dalí, Picasso, Chillida, Warhol and Miró.

Why visit Fundació Suñol?

Fundació Suñol was established in 2002 because its founder and chairman, Josep Suñol Soler wanted to show his immense contemporary art collection, which he had acquired over the previous 40 years. In fact, until the creation of the MACBA, Josep Suñol’s contemporary art collection was the city’s largest and many of its works of art were often loaned to foreign museums to form part of their exhibitions.

Following the establishment of the foundation in 2002, Josep Suñol displayed his collection at a number of different spaces before finding a permanent home for it in 2007 in a building adapted to meet it requirements on Passeig de Gràcia. The pieces of the collection, which includes more than 1,200 historical avant-garde works by artists such as Picasso, Miró, Man Ray, Tàpies, Gordillo, Warhol, Dalí, Solano, Zush, Pérez Villalta, Villalba, Llimós and Boetti, are on display at the temporary exhibitions periodically held by the foundation.

The foundation also has a space, called Nivell Zero (Level Zero), where complementary activities related to contemporary art are programmed.

 

How do you get to Fundació Suñol?

For the most curious of you

  • Did you know? In 1980 a space was opened in the Les Corts district to house the works that Josep Suñol was collecting and to serve as an atelier and residence for artists. Some of the creators who passed through this studio include Tom Carr, Pablo Maeso, José Noguero, Sergi Aguilar and Rosa Amorós, but the artist who spent the most time there was Zush (now, Evru).
  • Local’s tip: If you visit La Pedrera, you should also take a look at Fundació Suñol – it is just a few metres away from this Gaudí building!
  • A must: For fans of contemporary art.
