If you haven't visited a museum for a long time, we bring you the ideal plan to do it again. The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza will host until August 29 a very special exhibition of the painter Marina Núñez Vanitas. On the other hand, until November 1 you will have the opportunity to see one of the most emblematic works of this museum that has been recently restored: The Knight of Carpaccio.

The multimedia artist Marina Núñez reinterprets the concept of traditional still life and poses it in a different way, making us reflect on our relationship with nature from a feminist and ecological point of view. 

"Vanitas" is a mini-exhibition composed of 15 singular works, since not only paintings are shown, but also digital videos and laser-cut glass pieces. White flowers become the protagonists of these still lifes and represent victory in the struggle to end inequalities.

Access is free to the second floor balcony and rooms 5, 6 and 10.

This is the fourth exhibition of the Korma series, a program that shows proposals from a gender perspective. In addition, to make the experience even more complete, in June you will be able to attend a colloquium with the participation of the artist.

If you are looking to contemplate classic paintings or works of this museum, we recommend you to attend the restoration of The Gentleman by Vittore Carpaccio exhibited in room 11 of the permanent collection of the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza. A special montage of this masterpiece of painting will be accompanied by a video that illustrates the process and the steps that have been followed and in turn provides new information about the painting that has been known through the restoration itself.

Whether you want to attend an innovative artistic experience or you prefer to appreciate classic works, the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza offers the perfect activity for you.

Every Monday of the year from 12:00 to 16:00 the visit to the museum's permanent collection is free.
