Selection of the museum's collection since the sixties.
"Portmany" was a tireless draftsman. Through dialogue with the natural, and once accepted this, he experiences a personal language with a particular handwriting of gestures and strokes with which reveals the essence.
The prints by Japanese artists are from the MACE's Biennial Ibizagrafic which since 1972 was held at the museum. This contest was made popular in that country during that decade and until the nineties, which allowed many masters to participate with works of high technical value and artistic enough, making possible to show a sample of the contemporary Japanese engraving hand in hand with artists like Hideo Honda, Yamanobe, Yoshiike, Imai, Yamanichi or Taniguchi, among others.
The MACE has a very interesting collection of posters of the former Carl van der Voort Art Gallery from the donation made by him to the museum in 1997. Crafted posters which were designed and made mostly by the artists themselves and screenprinted at Taller Ibograf, also founded by Carl van der Voort in Ibiza. They belong to the 70's. Among the artists that are advertised there are names like Tàpies Acisclo Manzano, Hans Hinterreiter, Mompó, Guinovart Adolfo Schlosser, Erwin Bechtold, Chillida, Saura, Teixidor, Pagliari, Tur Costa or Amadeo Gabino, among others.
The designs are a treasure in that not only reflect the styles of each artist but offer a very significant view of the aesthetic of those years.
MACE Collection Video-creation
In 2002, a subtle change was made to the rules for the Biennal d’Eivissa in response to the emergence of new forms of creation in series, using new techonogies that did not fit into what were traditionally and genericaly known as recordings.
The MACE holds a small fledgling collection of photography. Some works are from the Biennial of Ibiza, which in the most recent time it opened its hand at other artistic techniques of mass reproduction and photography. There is also a small group from the Fenicis exhibition organized by the museum in 1993. Currently on display are works by: Mario Ayguavives Stephen Lovett, Lourdes Grivé, Corina Yllera and David Trullo.
