Organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network in the framework of the European project “Art Nouveau & Ecology” (2010-2015) supported by the Culture 2007-2013 programme of the European Commission, the exhibition comprises two identical concurrent exhibitions and is open in Barcelona at the Museu del Disseny until 6 January.
The goal of the exhibition is to draw visitors into an original discovery of Art Nouveau and its relation with nature, showing the evolution of artistic work from the idea to final products in Art Nouveau style, thanks to a richly documented iconography.
The exhibition gives the general public and Art Nouveau lovers the opportunity to understand the role of nature in art, especially during the Art Nouveau period. Children can enjoy the exhibition as well, thanks to an activity book.
The city of Terrassa is a partner of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network, a common initiative which, besides the co-financing of the European Commission of four successive European projects, obtained an international recognition of its 14 years of cooperation by receiving the jury’s special mention of the Europa Nostra awards 2013 and becoming a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe in 2014.
