About
The European Museum of Modern Art , MEAM, exhibits the finest Contemporary Figurative Art. It is owned by TheFoundation of Arts and Artists, and the purpose is to promote and diffuse Figurative Art of the 20th and 21st Centuries. The Foundation’s claim is to find a new contemporary language without denying tradition by progressing into the new Century. Moreover, the Foundation of Arts and Artists, organizes each year the Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Awards, and with the wesbiteFigurativas en Red opens a window with the artworks of the Contemporary Figurative artists. The MEAM is currentlly located at the Gomis Palace, in the middle of the streets of the Born in Barcelona, a neighborhood where culture is always present and reflects the charm of the old part of the city, an area that knew how to mix tradition and modernity, becoming a requiered visit for the tourits interested in the Monumental Barcelona. The MEAM is different from other Contemporary Art museums because it houses living artists who created Figurative Art. These artworks are hardly seen in other museums, collections or entities, to whom the word Contemporary is identified by experiment and abstraction.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Hit or miss depending on what artists are on exhibit. The majority of the space was dedicated to 2 artists, and I wasn't a fan of either. Price is high and reflects reality of keeping a small museum going in a very expensive part of the city. Larger state-supported musuems are a better deal, but if you want to see a certain artist here, then support them.

This museum was jam-packed with figurative painting. Not particularly my style but I appreciated the diversity of subject matter. A handful of pieces spoke to me; however, most were lacking. Furthermore, the building feels almost abandoned and the collection neglected.

Located next to the Picasso museum, in the heart of the Gothic quarters, this small museum focuses on contemporary figurative international art.
Inexpensive entrance fee.
Very dynamic curators propose interesting painting and sculpting workshops as well as classical and jazz concerts weekly.
Hats off!

This is a small art gallery very close to the Picasso museum but in our opinion much more enjoyable, cheaper, and with no queue to get in! A large proportion of the paintings are of nudes. They are very modern and of outstanding quality, and it was one of the best things we visited while in Barcelona.

MEAM is situated in the Palau Gomis, a once private house restored and the winner of a design prize accordingly. There are around 230 works of art here by artists from all over the world. Situated on three floors (accessed by stairs or lift), the top one being very small, the museum is manageable and pleasant, with beautiful natural light and soft classical music playing in the background. This should be visited for the building alone, which is fabulous, but the art is also extremely credible and interesting. There is a small shop for souvenirs downstairs, and there are also concerts held in the courtyard garden throughout the Summer. Very enjoyable. Entrance fee is 7 euros for adults, 5 for concessions.

I walked to the Picasso Museum and the line was so long I decided to return later. On my way there I passed this Museum that I went in instead. I must say it was fantastic, much better than the Picasso Museum which I found disappointing to say the least. The MEAM is worth the visit.

Brilliant range of contemporary art mainly figurative. Housed in a lovely building a stones throw from the Very busy Picasso Museum. It was very reasonable and very quite. Use the discount vouchers you get on the tourist buses and entrance is only 5 euros.

By far the most interactive and interesting collection of modern art, represented in Barcelona. Amazing stuff will capture the lens of your eye, for which you should definitely save some extra hours for your visit there. It’s small by size - huge by impression!

This was very interesting museum. It cost 7Euro a head, which seems steep but the museum will take about an hour to get around. Some of the art is a bit dark and represents death which some people may not enjoy. I felt like there was a bit of a contradiction with the dialogue printed on the walls, as it stated that art should be beyond the need for public appeal but yet it referenced how the artists struggled to get noticed by the public. However, it is well worth a visit as some of the art is very interesting, even my wife who tends not to like modern art enjoyed it.
