The Agbar Tower isn’t normally open to the general public. So when I heard about the “Agua, Aguas” exhibition I was keen to get a peek inside.
The exhibition is a collection of poems, paintings and photos with a common theme – Water. The exhibits are grouped together in 5 categories:
- Water, the origin of life
- Contained water
- Overflowing water
- Water and its reflections
- The lack of water
The exhibition is very small, there are about 20 pictures in all. The poems are all in Spanish and unfortunately there are no English translations. Even so, its an interesting concept and worth checking out.
Artists featured in the exhibition:
Painters & Photographers: María Luisa Rojo de Castro, Pepe Moll de Alba, Pedro Madueño, Din Matamoro and Patricio Court
Writers: Félix de Azúa, Albert Espinosa, Suso de Toro, Marcos Giralt Torrente, Quim Monzó, Nicanor Parra (Premio Cervantes 2011) and Andrés Sánchez Robayna
The Agbar tower is located in the 22@ district of Barcelona at the intersection of Av. Diagonal and C/Badajoz.
