Running until the end of November, the Barcelona International Jazz Festival will feature a variety of jazz, big band, bebop, gospel and Latin-jazz concerts at venues across the city, including the Palau de la Música Catalana, Bikini and L'Auditori. This year the event celebrates its 40th anniversary with a top line-up including Al Green, Katie Melua, Mariza, Bebo y Chucho Valdés, the Herbie Hancock Sextet and the Matthew Herbert Big Band. You can find details of all concerts at their website www.theproject.es

November could be a very busy month for concert goers in Barcelona, with a huge influx of visiting acts over the coming month. Among the very eclectic mix of artists arriving to entertain are Lydia Lunch, Yasmin Levy, Tricky, Martha Wainwright, Keane, Christian Death, Blood Red Shoes, Howlin Rain, Sigur Ros, Steve Winwood, Gossos, Simple Plan, Taxi, The Exploited, The Streets, The Wedding Present, Winger, The Ting Tings, Miss Kitten, Front 242, Stereolab, Enslaved, Slipknot, Franz Ferdinand, Lambchop, Futureheads, Mercury Rev, Monster Magnet, Soilwork, Foals, and Flogging Molly. As usual, everything you need to know can be found at www.barcelonarocks.com

At Caixaforum, showing throughout November and December, is an exhibition entitled Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939): Seduction, Modernity and Utopia which aims to provide an in-depth review of the artist's work. Mucha was one of the main creative forces behind the Art Nouveau style, one which he used to perfection in developing his highly effective iconography, an essential element in the birth of modern advertising. His fame was mainly based on his theatrical, advertising and decorative posters, usually depicting intriguing women. His relationship with celebrated actress Sarah Bernhardt didn't hurt his reputation either.

Over at La Fundació Foto Colectania The Laurence Miller Collection of international photography has a particular focus on North American work. Among the artists represented are Aaron Siskind, Ray Metzker, Helen Levitt, Lee Friedlander and Harry Callahan, who form part not only of the collector's private collection but also part of his own biography: Miller had, has established an intense and fruitful personal relationship with all of them. This exhibition will be open until early January.

The 8th International Festival of New Brazilian Art returns to Barcelona this month, with concerts, music, cinema screenings, plastic arts expositions, conferences and courses. BrasilNoar Festival 2008 is a multidisciplinary event encompassing the many various disciplines within the world of art. The concerts are held in Sala Apolo, photography exhibitions are scattered about a host of spaces, and all details are available at www.brasilnoar.com

This month sees the start of the 2008/2009 season at the Picasso Museum which opens a new exhibition. Living things: Picasso Figure/Still-Life presents a special selection of 80 works by Picasso made between 1907 and 1933 and studies for the first time the artist’s ability to move his art between the worlds of the living and the dead. Through transforming the signs that he uses in his work, Picasso is able to render figures as simple objects whilst at the same time offering us objects that appear to be full of life. The programme will also include the first retrospective in Spain devoted to the work of Dutch artist Kees van Dongen and a selection of Picasso's prints on erotic themes in dialogue with Japanese prints of the nineteenth century.

Starting this month, and running until January, The Joan Miró Foundation is presenting American Modern, an exhibition selected by Sarah Newman, Sarah Cash and Philip Brookman, curators at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., and by Martina Millà, programmes and projects coordinator at the Foundation. The Corcoran Gallery is one of the three oldest galleries in the US, and focuses on historical and contemporary american art with an extensive collection from the last three centuries that contains works by many of the United States' greatest artists. The collection on show at the Miró Foundation explores the complex emergence of modern art in the United States through more than 100 works by American artists from the late nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth century.

From Novermber 19th, The Collection. Fundación Francisco Godia presents a collection of two hundred and sixty pieces of medieval, Baroque, modernism, 19th and 20th century art, as well as a selection of ceramics. The stars of the collection are the romantic virgins, La Virgen de la Leche and La Maria Magdalena from Jaume Huguet, La Piedad de Alejo by Vahía, the works of Luca Giordano and Zurbarán and the modern creations of Sorolla, Nonell, Mir, Casas, Gimeno, Picasso, Miró, Tàpies, Barceló and an exterior installation created by Cristina Iglesias.

At the Giggling Guiri in the Cafè Teatre Llantiol, comedy fans can join in the fun on the 2nd when Logan Murray will MC the open mic night. When all the amateurs are carried or swept from the stage Glaswegian comedienne, Janey Godley, takes over. Despite a very late start in comedy Janey arrives fresh from an outstanding run at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe that saw her win 3 awards. Visit www.comedyinspain.com for prices and curtain times.

With the football season now in full flow, FC Barcelona have three home games this month beginning with their Champions League tie against Swiss side Basle on the 4th, followed by two league games against Valladolid on the 9th, and Getafe on the 23rd. Espanyol, who desperately need to find some form, have three home games, meeting Osasuna on the 2nd, Numancia on the 16th, and Sporting Gijon on the 30th.
