Nit de l’Art, contemporary art takes to the streets


On the 23rd of September, Palma will be celebrating the 28th edition of Nit de l’Art. Thousands of people will join together to celebrate the exhibitions presented by the galleries and the principal public exhibition venues of the city. This year’s programming will showcase Palma at it’s best, with it’s cosmopolitan spirit and porosity to the international accents and influences it proudly hosts.

La Nit de l'Art is Mallorca's Mediterranean version of the "Nuit Blanche" concept, which many cities across the world celebrate. In Mallorca, art galleries and museums join together to celebrate the start of the arts and culture season by transforming the city's historic quarter into a treasure trove for art lovers during a single night on the third Thursday of September.

The first edition of the Nit de l'Art took place in 1997 as an informal agreement between what were originally a handful of art galleries and a small group of collectors and enthusiasts.

La Nit de L'Art is a unique event which fuses the characteristic spirit of the traditional Spanish fiestas (where people of all ages get together in public squares and picturesque streets). Throughout a single evening, the historic quarter is taken over by the art world, with tens of thousands of visitors spilling out onto the pedestrian streets and alleyways to explore some of the most exciting exhibitions, performances and installations of the year.
