"Art Primer.

Organized as the closing ceremony for the 20th anniversary of the declaration of the rock art of the Mediterranean Basin on the Iberian Peninsula as world heritage by UNESCO, the exhibition presented more than two hundred objects and unique documents from the European prehistory, while it also offered many audiovisual and 3D virtual reality resources, which showed animated scenes of the prehistory, reproductions of technological processes, and the immersive visit to Roca dels Moros (les Garrigues). InÚs Domingo, ICREA researcher affiliated at the Prehistoric Studies and Research Seminar (SERP) of the UB, was in charge of the exhibition together with Antonio Palomo, curator at MAC.
