Home of 21st century art

Contemporary art has a new home in Barcelona. On April 10, the
Fundació Alorda-Derksen opened a new gallery on carrer Aragó devoted
to contemporary art.
An initiative of businessman and art collector Manuel Alorda, the
gallery's inaugural exhibition contains 25 works by some of today's
most highly-regarded artists, including the likes of Damien Hirst,
Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Jason Martin and Douglas Gordon. (Full
