Palma’s historic quarter will see its buildings, ateliers, rooftops, balconies, shop windows, bars and cafes filled with avant-garde art during the 25th annual ‘Nit de l’Art’ (Night of Art).
First started in 1997, the event takes place in many cities internationally and this year Majorca will host its edition from 16 to 18 September 2021.
Over the course of the 3-day celebration, ten galleries and over one hundred artists will be taking part. The city’s museums and galleries will launch new exhibitions for a 2-month period following the festival. Keeping up with the “night” theme, the new collections can be admired by visitors free of charge once the sun goes down.
Although also celebrated in cities such as Paris and Toronto, Majorca’s celebration of creativity is unlike any other. Its organisers, Art Palma Contemporani and AIGAB, keep the official programme secret until a few days, or sometimes hours, before the event to guarantee a striking ‘Night of Art’. Alongside the artworks themselves, music and creative performances complete the bill.
Painting, photography, art installations and sculptures will astonish revellers at the festivals’ exhibitions, with work from contemporary artists such as Joseph Beuys, Stephan Balkenhol, Jörg Immendorff, Katharina Grosse or Markus Lüpertz. The artist Luis Gordillo, winner of the Velazquez Prize for the Visual Arts and a leading figure in Spanish art, has been commissioned for a solo exhibition in Pollença, in the region of Calvia. In addition, for the first time on the island, works by artists such as José Dávila, Alicja Kwade, Gregor Hidebrant and Sidival Fila will be exhibited.
During the ‘Nit de l’Art’, Palma distinguishes itself as a champion of avant-garde art and new artistic movements, showcasing its independent spirit that conceived this magical night 25 years prior.
