10th Barcelona Modernista Fair in Barcelona - from 30 May to 1 June 2014


Between 30 May and 1 June 2014, Cor Eixample (Trade and Professional Association for the Right Side of the Eixample) and Barcelona City Council are holding the 10th Barcelona Modernista Fair. The Fair is part of the activities of the Right Side of the Eixample’s local festival and this year celebrates its tenth edition.

As in past years, the event will be held in Carrer Girona, between Avinguda Diagonal and Carrer València, with various activities also taking place on the side lanes of Avinguda Diagonal.

There will be heaps of leisure and cultural activities for young people, adults and toddlers, including guided tours, children’s workshops, Modernista puppets, a parade of vintage cars, a vintage train ride, conferences on Modernisme, some spectacular period attractions, a family bike ride (you must be dressed in period costume to participate), street entertainment and many other surprises. Other towns and organisations connected in some way to Modernisme will also be present, as well as a stand offering information and products related to the Barcelona Modernisme Route.

This year the Fair is dedicated to the centenary of the first car with an Elizalde engine, which was built in the Elizalde factory located at Passeig de Sant Joan 149 in Barcelona.

In addition, whoever comes dressed in Art Nouveau period clothes will receive a gift photo of themselves and go into the draw for some handmade products and other prizes.

Official programme in Catalan

Exhibition Paper workshop of Côme Perché at the Horta Museum in Brussels – from 16 May to 1 June 2014


The Horta Museum chose to invite, for Artists Tour, Côme Perché who gives a poetic interpretation of the nature using paper-folding. He makes use of all qualities of the paper’s fibre to create a world superbly stylized and intensely alive that human, animals or plants figures occupy. The creations of Côme Perché find themselves next to plaster models of plants of the XIXth century, shells or stuffed insects. The whole installation aims to awaken children’s fantasy, as well as reaching adults by its singular beauties.

Exhibition in the framework of Artists Tour Saint-Gilles & Forest under the patronage of M. Charles Picqué President of the asbl (association) Musée Horta and Burgomaster of Saint-Gilles
