The Barcelona Museum MEAM constantly updated collection of European fine art of XX and XXI centuries. The main purpose of the museum is open to the public the work of contemporary artists who do not deny the tradition of classical painting and sculpture.
MEAM different from other museums of modern art, it exhibited the work of living artists, the actual creators of fine arts. This museum is unique, as in other museums of modern art are not valued work in the style of classical realism, but more is an emphasis on abstraction and experimental video art.
MEAM - the perfect museum for those who are tired of modern "conceptual" art with its incomprehensible performances, minimalism empty, boring videos and unfinished ideas. In MEAM rely on direct, clear, categorical, clear and brilliant art. A breath of fresh air among the same type of art nouveau works and boring art, art, aimed at the heart of the viewer, evokes emotions and speaking in plain language. Creativity as an intimate process of creation in the artist's studio, meditation, long, sometimes agonizing, but always present.
In addition, the Museum Foundation organizes an annual contest of contemporary painting and sculpture, and site Figurative Network open to all interested window into the world of contemporary visual artists.
