The IVAM (Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno) opened in 1989. It was the first modern and contemporary art museum project fostered in Spain following the country’s devolution and the need to acknowledge and promote art and culture.
The exhibition tells us how the IVAM came about and who the process stakeholders were, delving into identity features such as the collections and the building. The context in which the museum was created is also a key element in the exhibition, making its local framework and circumstances visible. Likewise, the contents of the case study are connected to the international scene through the exhibition 1989. The end of the 20th century.
