The event ABIERTO-VALENCIA, organized by LaVac (Association of contemporary art galleries in the Valencian Community), wants to be a celebration of art and culture. The event, to be held annually every September, is the joint opening of the beginning of the art season, galleries that are part of LaVac with a wide range of activities, visits, meetings, awards and parties in line with the events held in other major centers on the international scene as the Gallery Weekend Berlin or New York.
With each edition, we want ABIERTO-VALENCIA become an event that will attract collectors, art lovers, curators and experts and the general public. For this event, the art galleries that make LaVac choose the best of his group of artists both Spanish and international, established and emerging.
In this, the first edition, to be held on September 26, the public can get even closer to contemporary art thanks to extended hours of each of the rooms opening to 22:00, concluding the celebration with a party in the cloister of the Centro del Carmen where an exclusive cocktail for our guests, designed by renowned chefs of the Valencian Community, which create different “tapas” are offered live.
On this special occasion, we will have the support of Gandia Blasco, one of the most international and contemporary industrial design within the Valencian companies that binds the event to give a prize acquisition of one of the works in the exhibition, the panel of experts as the most prominent point of the season.
In sum, ABIERTO-VALENCIA wants to turn the epicenter of contemporary art. A must visit at both national and international cultural calendar.
