The train. There is usually one direct train from the TGV station (there may be more) or you can go from the Avignon Centre station by way of a connection in Perpignan or Nimes.

There are 2 trains a day from Avignon to Barcelona. About 6 hours with a change in either Nimes or Figueres-Vilafant. There might be other options too but they would be slower with a change in Cerbere.

It depends upon whether you want to see anything in between. If so, rent a car in Avignon then drop it off in Perpignan to avoid a high drop charge in Spain. If it's just to get to Barcelona then take the train as advised.
