In the 1980s, a pioneering art collection was started, which is now one of the most important private collections in Spain and Southern Europe.

From its very beginnings, the ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection has valued dialogue above all else. Between artists and critics, different eras and different nationalities.

The collection also establishes contact between people and their world. Based around the collection, we set up programmes to bring art closer to visitors, to families and to schools.

We organise exhibitions to present what we have in the collection in various cities in Spain and abroad. We have also created two funding calls to support contemporary creation aimed at artists and young professionals. The collection’s life grows thanks to the pieces we add each year, the contact we have with the creators and the network of young professionals who create their own projects based on the pieces in our collection.
