May 19, you've got a date with Museum Night!

May 18 is International Museum Day and to celebrate, Saturday, May 19 is Museum Night in Barcelona and Europe. This year marks the 14th anniversary of the European event that includes the participation of over 4,000 museums.

83 museums and cultural institutions will be open from 7 p.m. Saturday until 1 a.m. Sunday. The event also includes a number of other activities such as concerts, performances, guided tours and family activities.  

The Disseny Hub and the Museu del Disseny are opening the permanent collections to visitors this night as well as an integrated art project which is part of the program 'Creació & Museus', which has for the past three years exhibited collaborative proposals between museums and factories in Barcelona.

The proposal that the building is hosting was conceived by Nau Ivanov, and is made up of the piece 'Disseny Hug', by artist Hui Bassa and a performance by Lali Álvarez, Pau Matas, Gary Schochat and Clara Garcés.

The performance includes a theatrical action and will be shown four times throughout the night: at 8 p.m., 9 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
