The Congress Dinner will be held on Saturday evening, April 28, 2012, from 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm.
This year’s OARSI Congress Dinner promises to be a night to remember. Join the OARSI leadership and your fellow colleagues for an evening of great food and fantastic conversation, not to mention an amazing venue.
The OARSI Congress Dinner will be held at the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC). Set on top of the Montjuïc hill, overlooking the city of Barcelona, the MNAC houses over 1000 years of art. The MNAC embraces all the arts (sculpture, painting, objets d'art, drawing, engraving, posters, photography and coinage) and has the task of explaining the general history of Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century. In the case of the Romanesque and Gothic collections, this discourse is characterized by the Catalan provenance of most of the pieces, although, particularly in the Gothic, comparisons are made with art from other provenances. With regard to the Renaissance and Baroque collections, the works included lead to a more international discourse, with the work of great painters, such as El Greco, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Cranach, and Rubens. The MNAC art collections from the end of the nineteenth century and the early decades of the twentieth century are once again mostly made up of the work of Catalan artists, forming a discourse which explains Modernisme, Noucentisme and the Avant-garde, always taking into account all the arts.
With such an inviting venue for an already much-anticipated event; we’re confident the Congress Dinner is one event you won’t want to miss.
