Joan Ponç (Barcelona, 1928 – Sant Pau, 1984) was a visionary and mercurial insular artist who played an important part in the history of art of the post-war years in Catalonia and Spain. This exhibition, curated by the art historian and critic Pilar Parcerisa, presents a comprehensive new interpretation of the life and work of the painter Joan Ponç, from his early days in the mid-1940s and the era of the Dau al Set group to his last works in the middle of the 1980s. The exhibition title, Diabolo, is a reference to Ponç’s playfulness, with the added ambivalence of the name that this Chinese juggling toy shares with the devil. Ticket: €4.
When: from 06/10/2017 to 04/02/2018
Where: Passeig de Gràcia, 92. Barcelona
