Within the picturesque gardens of Palau Robert, a new exhibition can be found entitled: ‘Catalunya, vista pels instagramers’.
The exhibition revolves around a simple premise: Catalunya, as seen by instagramers. For the uninitiated, Instagram is a photo-sharing tool for smartphones which has taken social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook by storm since its 2010 release. It was recently purchased by Facebook for $1 billion. Over 100 million registered members use the application to create a softer, retro feel to photographs.
The exhibition features 241 photographs that provide a unique and personal perspective on Catalunya and were selected as winners from over 52,000 entries for a competition organised by l’Agència Catalana de Turisme.
Palau Robert is open from 10am to 8pm on Monday to Saturday; and from 10am to 2.30pm on Sundays. Full information can be found here.
