THE ART FAIR

THE ART FAIR

Three day project with artists, curators, gallerists, etc. to gather into a discussion of the situation of contemporary art today and interventions at the public space

09 - 11 June, 2016

Text

 

From the 9th until the 11th of June 2016, the exhibition project THE ART FAIR will take place at L21. This projects works as a teaser of an art fair that L21 has been planning for the last two years for Mallorca and that will be presented in 2017. During the three days, inside the space of the gallery, a program of talks will take place from different agents from the artistic field, focusing on our closest scenes like Barcelona, Madrid, Lisboa or San Sebastián.

 

Each guest invited to the talks will bring the work by an artist that will be part of the routes from the mornings and they will be located in different parts from the surroundings of the gallery. From a garden or a cake shop to a projection room from an institution like CaixaForum, where on Saturday a screening of video works will take place.

Antonio Ballester Moreno (Artist)
David Armengol (Curator)
