Manifestations of ideas, emotions and poetics

In the IVAM’s temporary exhibitions different artistic languages coexist as they really are: manifestations of ideas, emotions and poetics of artists who at all times choose their best way to express themselves. Modern and contemporary seen as strongly intertwined aspects that can not be understood without each other. The global and the local are not exclusive but complementary approaches to help us better understand a world of increasingly complex art. Temporary exhibitions maintain smooth relations of complicity and integration with the permanent collection to create common feelings and experiences.
