World Design Capital Valencia 2022 and The Association of Art Galleries of the Valencian Community have joined forces in the project “Today is tomorrow” with the aim of linking the activities of the contemporary art galleries with the actions included in the framework of the design capital programme.
The Institut València d’Art Modern (IVAM) was the setting today for the presentation at a press conference of “Today is tomorrow”, an initiative curated by José Luis Clemente and inspired by the exhibition “This is tomorrow” (London, 1956), which brought together artists, architects and designers to experience the integration of the arts, projecting a vision of the future in the new forms of life that were drawn at the end of the nineteen-fifties.
The activities proposed by LAVAC, in the setting of its collaboration with World Design Capital Valencia 2022, consist of the scheduling of specific exhibitions, performances, talks, round tables and workshops which converge with the goals and principles posed by the New European Bauhaus (NEB). These activities will be held at the galleries themselves according to their usual schedule and will be announced throughout 2022 and during the first quarter of 2023.
