The public who come to the museum will receive a tote bag as a gift. The Institut València d’Art Modern (IVAM) celebrates its 34th anniversary this Saturday with free admission throughout the day, as well as the gift of a multi-purpose fabric tote bag for the first 500 visitors. On 18 February 1989, the IVAM opened its doors as the first autonomously-owned museum of modern and contemporary art in a new building in the Carmen district. The museum housed large rooms for permanent and temporary exhibitions, the most important being the one dedicated to Julio González, and its programme soon made it a reference beyond the national art scene.
This Saturday marks 34 years since its birth and the Valencian museum celebrates it with all those who come to the Guillem de Castro centre. The public visiting the IVAM will have the opportunity to see the exhibition recently inaugurated in gallery 1, ‘Open creation and its enemies: Asger Jorn in situation’, which delves into the creation of images and the connections between painting and the Scandinavian artist’s graphic edition and experimentation.
Gallery 3 of the IVAM proposes a reflection on housework and care through the project by the social researcher Alba Herrero and the illustrator Ana Penyas, winner of the 2018 National Comic Prize, under the title ‘In a house. Genealogy of housework and care’.
The IVAM’s offer is completed with the exhibition dedicated to Teresa Lanceta and with new looks at the works of Ignacio Pinazo and Julio González in the exhibitions ‘Pinazo in the public space’ and ‘Being an artist. Julio González’.
