Can Framis Museum, Barcelona




Paul Daly, architect and artist, was the winner of the 2018 Fundació Vila Casas Sculpture Prize with the work Rambla (Senescencia).  The exhibition on show at the Can Framis Museum until 19 January 2020, curated by Glòria Bosch, brings together a selection of works from recent years and is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Barcelona.
