Mari Chordà, Eulàlia Grau and Joan Rabascall pieces can be seen these days in London’s Tate Modern exhibition ‘The World Goes Pop’. Their works are being presented together with sculptures, paintings and videos of the most well-known Pop Art artists internationally. In total, more than 160 artworks from the 60s and 70s showing the history of this artistic movement and exploring the different cultures that contributed to it are on display. Topics range from politics and the human body to public protests, consumerism and domestic revolutions. The exhibition tries to break the myths about Pop Art, traditionally linked to the United States and the work of Andy Warhol, and presents artworks made in Latin America and European countries such as Croatia and Austria.

The Tate Modern launched on Wednesday 'Albert Serra: Divine Visionaries and Holy Fools', an event series on the Catalan maverick filmmaker. The show will be on until 20 March and will include an exclusive preview of his latest project 'Singularity', which he has been shooting the last few months. This project has been commissioned for the Catalan pavilion at the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Biennale di Venezia. The Tate Modern-hosted event represents the first major showcase in the UK of Serra's work, a powerful and unique voice in contemporary cinema, as stated in the Tate Modern's presentation at the event. The show begins with the screening of his recent film 'Story of My Death' (2013) but the most awaited event will take place on Friday, when the Catalan director will premiere 'Singularity'.

‘Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape’ was on show at London’s Tate Modern until September, being one of the must-see exhibitions of the year. Now it arrives at the Fundació Miró in Barcelona. It is the most complete exhibition on one of the most universal Catalan artists of all time, with 170 works on display from public and private collections from all over the world. The exhibition has the double objective of rediscovering Miró’s work and showing his commitment in the era he lived in. Another exhibition on Miró’s posters will run in parallel, focussing on his involvement in Catalan cultural, political and civic initiatives.
