  • Contemporary art is not for everyone but the entrance on the day of the Spanish Constitution if it should be. To miss the entrance should explain the difference between a backpack and a bag and also a little psychology to better treat visitors when he urges that you must leave the "bags/backpacks" at the box office. The staff within the friendly exhibition halls. Art think is more in the eye of the beholder and how interprets it that any work itself. A challenge to open mind

  • It visited with much frequency and always there are any exhibition that I surprised and of which I learn much. This time, was looking for them walls on them associations feminist and, the truth, the information I turned out low but compensated with the rest of them displays. He personal, except the degradable girl of the box office, I seemed helpful and doing gala of enormous patience with who wanted to be until last time enjoying.

  • While I read the motivations of the artists and what they express with their works... it seems silly. Once again leads me to think that the mind of the artists does not work like ours, and I don't say this in a derogatory sense, but I think that I value a lot more other forms of expression. For my have been shot 6 euros, but I understand that you have to like who. In my opinion, there are ways to art transmitting much and without much abstract symbolism (as hidden pictures by sheet-metal... Yes, I understand what you want to convey, but for me, is absurd). I do not understand that it has a lot of stacked cardboard art. Or postit strips taped to a sheet. I also do those things when I get bored studying and not try to give them extra symbolism. For me, cultural overestimation... But it is art, not everyone can understand it. And I'm of those works do not have transmitted that nothing more than puzzling. That if straw giving turns made me grace (although I doubt that what was intended) and truck entry is cool to see, because the destruction, in general, is always striking for the human being. But... art to my would be to make an exhibition of photographs of the faces of the people leaving. Without a doubt, it would be a magnificent artistic expression. The exteriors are beautiful.

  • This is an excellent museum of modern arts
  • Criticism of the location depends on the taste of the person. Well you can say that the art of this place is not something that is understood easily and less still for someone which do not call him much attention the concept of art that occurs in this century. Giving by echo place this data gives us a variety and complexity of very large art. You could say that is very well thought out for people who understand the new contemporary art and even so occasionally you can enjoy an artistic experience more aimed at people like me who have quality in art the old.
