Guixar amb el Pirineu (Drawing with the Pyrenees), 1999-2011
“Oh Perejaume, if only you could see the mountain of works around you, you wouldn’t do any new ones!” is no conventional retrospective, in spite of the collection bringing together around two hundred works which have all been written over the past twenty years, neither is it just another exhibition, it is more of a reflection on the purpose, limits and destiny of art in face of the excesses, accumulation and laziness of so many works; not for Perejaume, since the early 1990s, he has incessantly voiced the need for un-painting, for undoing, for un-drawing and for restoring the words and images to their original place in order to rehabilitate our relationship with the world.
Exhibition from 25 October 2011 – 26 February 2012 at La Pedrera

Since it opened in 2007, the Cinémathèque de Tanger has become a pre-eminent cultural institution in the Maghreb. From July to December, La Virreina Centre de la Imatge welcomes the Cinémathèque with a film programme and a book published in five languages. The charm of Tangier as a legendary international city, a source of geopolitical interest and at the same time a meeting point between the Arab world and Europe is captured in the heart of Barcelona’s Raval neighbourhood.
