Bilbao in major mode.
If you have not yet seen the exhibition,
or indeed if you have never had the chance to admire the spectacular architecture of the site – by Franck Gerhy (which may remind you of something…) – it is about time to head South. The Guggenheim museum has gathered together its great masterpieces, by repatriating essential pieces from its sister museum in New York for the occasion. Cubism, abstract, surrealism…every major movement is here, and it is one of the rare chances where you can admire pieces by Chagall, Modigliani, Kandinsky, Cy Twombly and Warhol…all under the same roof. In short, this should be one of your resolutions for the New Year: flee the gloominess and book a weekend getaway to Spain in the coming weeks.
