New director of the Museum

Ferran Barenblit, new director of MACBA

The General Council of the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona has named Ferran Barenblit as the new director of MACBA. The Council has endorsed the proposal of the Committee of Experts set up to this effect on 12 May 2015.

The jury wishes to emphasise that, among all the candidates, Ferran Barenblit has distinguished himself for his presentation of a rigorous, precise and clear project for all the areas of the Museum, in particular the Collection and exhibition programme. Besides the solvency of his academic education and professional career, the jury has taken into account his knowledge, evaluation and diagnostic (precise, accurate and realistic, but also enthusiastic) of the institution’s current situation and its position in the global, national and local context.

Ferran Barenblit (Buenos Aires, 1968) studied Art History at the Universitat de Barcelona (1991) and Museology at New York University (1995). Since 2008 he has been director of CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo de la Comunidad de Madrid. From 2002 to 2008 Barenblit was director of the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica.
