  • PélAPél (free expo): Precision is an essential condition of attention and concentration; it is an attitude that I consider to be fundamental for artistic creation. Olga Muñoz uses it and goes beyond extreme technical detail. The challenge she has set herself is to capture in very close close-ups, hair by hair, the vital rhythm of pets, which, through her precise vision, she almost turns into hairy abstractions. Museu Blau, Plaça Leonardo da Vinci 4-5, Parc del Forum, metro Maresme-Forum L4 (Rambla Prim exit)
