Galeria Joan Prats opened its doors on March 23rd 1976 with the exhibition Presència de Joan Prats, an homage to one of the most important figures of contemporary avant-garde art of Barcelona, who gave his name to the gallery.
Today, after 38 years, we say goodbye to our emblematic space in Rambla de Catalunya, so closed to Joan Miró, Joan Prats and Josep Lluís Sert who designed the inside project of the gallery, and we do it with an exhibition that aims to recall the activity of all this time.
The last exhibition in Rambla de Catalunya, Presència de Galeria Joan Prats, will therefore be another tribute: to all the artists who have exhibited here and have made this long history possible.
