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.
More than 1,600 partners of Ringana, the Austrian natural and vegan cosmetics company with an international presence, participated in the Ringana Next event in June, which was held for the first time at the Congress Center in Palma.
The Palma Congress Center hosted from June 2 to 4 the 68th Congress of the Spanish Association of Pediatrics (AEP), which had to be postponed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and which has brought together nearly 1,500 pediatricians in the city.
The health professionals of the Balearic Islands were able to celebrate the "VI Gala de la Salut" this year, which they had to postpone due to the pandemic.
