It is set within the agreement of collaboration the accomplishment of four exhibitions, principally with the fund of the Gelonch-Viladegut Collection and of the own museum of Poblet’s Monastery:

Images to believe, produced with the collaboration of the Barcelona History’s Museum, foreseen for the year 2018,

The engraved Bible, programmed for the year 2020,

The Way of the Cross, raised for the Holy Week on the year 2021. Fourteen contemporary artists will elaborate a work linked with 14 stations of the Way of the Cross.
