The Catalan Museums: An #Open Mix of Global Audience & Local Flavor

Over the past few months we had the chance to meet many extremely interesting people, not all of them Italian, who enthusiastically joined in our project – it goes without saying, most of these lucky connections were formed on… Twitter. It’s on this platform that we met Àlex Hinojo (@Kippelboy), a “cultural sector engager” from Barcelona, as his bio defines him.

“Mettersi nei panni di un turista durante le cantine a Sant’Angelo in Vado, la festa della castagna a Lunano o la fiera del tartufo in Acqualagna. Una volta che si è mangiato e bevuto, che si fa?

“In celebration of the exhibition Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926–1938, MoMA invites you to participate in “Magritte through Your Eyes” by submitting photos and videos inspired by René Magritte’s breakthrough Surrealist years.

Using Magritte’s The False Mirror as inspiration, share your own interpretation of the painting by posting pictures or videos to your Facebook and Twitter accounts using your favorite apps and filters. The posts should include the hashtag #MoMAMagritte, so that all submissions can appear here. We will be sharing our favorites, so be creative!

Participants can show their posts on their mobile device at MoMA, at any time during the promotion, for a $5 discount on regular admission. The promotion will run October 23–November 30.”
