Leisure plans: the Guggenheim, the rock museum in Barcelona, ​​Rosalía and the Irish Bloomsday festival

Our week’s agenda starts with a visit to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Jungwirth’s abstract art

The museum houses the work of the contemporary Austrian abstract painter Martha Jungwirth. The exhibition invites us to immerse ourselves in rediscovering sensuality through unique proposals. Her paintings and watercolors, inspired by observations of the human form, animals, art history, and her travels around the world, are his inspiration. Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
