About Gallery

LAB 36 is an exhibition space for art and for generating meeting points between art and other disciplines present in the cultural production of Barcelona. A dynamic and moving space, a mirror of our present and our creative community.

In LAB 36 we want to give visibility to creation and creativity and facilitate participation and intersection between the different collectives that are generating cultural content on contemporary issues in our local scene. The goal is to create unique experiences from art and creativity for all audiences.

Thus, LAB 36 appears in the gallery geography of Barcelona as an open proposal for the artistic experience, for production and to echo the creative talent rooted in our city.

Walking through the space of a city allows us to understand its nature, its dimension, its character and its culture; and with this we invariably create moments and live histories that we want to keep in our memory. This project arises from the need to refrain from these sensations and emotions generated in walking the streets of Barcelona, in finding ourselves in architectural spaces that envelop us physically and mentally, the gaze is filled with intimate spaces that we want to appropriate every second and with every step. "Espacios de Barcelona" pretends to take possession of places, streets and passages that offer us an enormous range of balconies, doors, arches, columns and walls that tell unmentionable stories of this great city. Miguel Ángel Madrigal

Miguel Ángel Madrigal

Master in plastic arts Miguel ángel Madrigal (Mexico City, 1974) explores different ways of manipulating objects and materials. He has challenged gravity - not only the physical but also the visual balance as well as the conventionality of artistic supports. He works with shapes and objects that we can recognize in our daily life, but when we relate them with others arbitrarily, they resignify themselves by radically changing our perception of them. 

He has had more than 30 solo exhibitions and 80 group exhibitions in various museums, biennials, centers and galleries in Mexico and internationally in Spain, USA, Germany, Colombia, Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, China, United Kingdom, to mention a few.
