Barcelona: Movers and Shakers in Modernism with Dr Jeni Ryde

Barcelona

In this talk, Dr Jeni Ryde explores the origins and development of modernism in Barcelona. While Antoni Gaudí enjoys the lion’s share of attention for his extravagant architecture in this genre, the talk will also showcase less known but equally fabulous
‘movers’ and ‘shakers’ who have contributed to an extraordinary period of urban development in Barcelona, which has shaped how we see much of the city today.
Dr Jeni Ryde is an art history specialist and linguist, fluent in Spanish and Italian.
