Spanish contemporary art worldwide
03 october – 19 november, 2017
“Ciutat de vacances” is a project that unites the forces of the three institutions and will take shape in Venice, as a place where the results of the research and production work carried out at Es Baluard and Arts Santa Mònica will be made visible. And these institutions are joined frorm Alicante by the museum MACA, and from Italy by the IED, for pedagogical training for design of a fake-ephemeral prototype of tourist information point and a research group.
Our aim in developing this tourist information point is to be able to continue testing and analysing in real time the phenomenon of the flows of planetary displacement and their relationship to the cities that currently experience the maximum intensity of a fundamental type of tourism – art tourism, during the most important Biennale in the world, that of Venice.
