The Inventory of the official political portrait is a self-constructed documentary archive that takes as main motive the portraits of governors hanged in the City Council plenary hall, in Catalonia. The purpose of the project is to suggest a reflection on the uses and the power of this type of images. In the general framework of this project, Ignasi Prat notes the notable presence of artistic works in many of these rooms, which leads him to reflect on the functions that the art works carry on in these spaces.

Under these premises, the project proposed to bring together in a single exhibition space, Maristany Art Centre, some art works found of the plenary halls from the Valles Occidental municipalities

This work has been the winner of the call for Artistic Projects of the Maristany Art Centre, 2018.

Exhibition, from November 15 to December 29
