Check out our hand-picked selection of the new events beginning next month.
1st March to 2nd March 2014, Palma
Sa Rua & Sa Rueta Carnival – two street carnivals with a procession of floats and parties all in fancy dress.
This exhibition at CaixaForum (until 12th January 2014) sets out to show the problem of food distribution and access on a global scale, and some ideas for feeding the planet in the future. Among others the exhibition includes photographs by Pep Bonet in rural communities of Bolivia and Tanzania, and video testimonies that give voice to small producers in developing countries – which suffer particularly from poverty and hunger.
Formed by Gilbert Proesch (Italy, 1943) and George Passmore (United Kingdom, 1942), the exhibition compiles newspaper posters, stolen/retrieved, one by one by the artists, sorted and classified by them according to subject. The photos are a visual novel that reveals the ever nonjudgmental urban drama with all its nuances of hope, desires, sorrow and suffering. A visit is worthwhile in any case!
Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 2pm and 3:30pm to 8:30pm and Sundays and holidays from 11am to 2:30pm (Monday closed).
The capital of Majorca hosted its Nit de l’Art on the third Thursday in September 2013. Throughout a single evening, the historic quarter of Palma was taken over by the art world, with thousands of visitors spilling out onto the streets to explore some of the most exciting exhibitions, performances and installations of the year. A fantastic cultural event, don’t miss it next year!
