From the 19th to 21st of September, Palma will be celebrating the 23rd edition of Nit de l’Art. One more year, local people and visitors will join together to celebrate the exhibitions presented by the galleries and the principal public exhibition venues of the city.
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.
In this edition, African art will be the main protagonist and, for the first time, national collaborators specialized in contemporary art will participate, such as the ARCO Foundation.
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.
As February unfolds, the lively hues of festivity cascade through Palma's streets, metamorphosing the city into a vibrant spectacle in homage to Carnival – one of the most jubilant celebrations of the year.
