Oriol Vilanova. Diumenge

Categories
Art, Barcelona

Until May 28 at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies you will be able to visit the particular exhibition called “Diumenge” of Oriol Vilanova, where the collector shows us his complete collection of postal cards from all periods and geographical areas.

Scraping in the ruins

Sunday after Sunday, Oriol Vilanova ventures into the flea markets of the city, where he takes on the task of rummaging among all the stands in order to be able to get postcards that have been circulating all over the world to add them to his collection, which now carries more than 15 years and it keeps growing non-stop.

The postcards that Oriol collects are of various themes such as triumphal arches, Swiss flags, roads, cats, oranges, sunsets and zoos, among others. This exhibition has transformed the Fundació Antoni Tàpies into a museum of all times and geographical areas. One of the sections called by Oriol himself as “unclassifiable” leaves the door open to the next additions to his collection.

Years of search

A total amount of about thirty-four thousand postcards and a hundred sections in which they are classified, occupy the two main spaces of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, located in the street Aragó 255, a distance that you can walk easily from the facilities of our hotel in Paseo de Gracia. For that reason, we invite you to visit the exhibition that although it is not of the most common it can certainly be original and with a quite different theme; it clearly shows the dedication and passion of a collector.

Diumenge de Oriol Vilanova, will be available until May 28 at levels 1 and -1 of Fundació Antoni Tàpies from Tuesday to Sunday in the hours between 10 and 19 hrs.
