Within this context, the exhibition receives a selection of works that are developed in very diverse disciplines such us poetry, painting, sculpture, music or theatre. The selection of 75 works, some of them being unique items, constitutes a sample of great reality: game and art coexist and share the path.

The two items belonging to Topic, ‘La Dona’ (pictured) of the company ‘La Claca’ and Joan Miró and ‘Esqueleto’, of Isidre Ferrer, is in line with ‘Fragments of Reality’.
