Broner House is once again open to the public

Casa BronerOn Tuesday, February 13, the Broner House will be open to the public, after the completion of the consolidation work on the cliff of Sa Penya and the subsequent improvement work inside it, which is why it has been closed in the last months.

The Casa Broner was closed on May 30, 2017, so as not to damage the pieces that were inside it.

The Broner House will open again in its usual hours, from Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 4.30 pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm.

Narcís Puget Riquer · Centenari 1916 – 2016: Photografies

Exposició Puget

Opening: 27.05.16 - 7 pm

This exhibition is comprised of a series of images, developed and printed on photographic paper and which derive from the slides made by Narciso Puget Riquer during the 1960 – 70s and are part of the private collection of the artist´s daughters and heirs: Maria Asunción y Guillermina Puget Reig.
Puget Riquer took the majority of the images in Santa Eulalia del Río, where he lived together with his wife and two daughters at the time although he also took photographs in the city of Ibiza as well as various villages and hamlets on the island and on Formentera.
His family, the landscape and his friends were the main focus for his attention. However, in the exhibition we decided only to include the landscapes on the basis of a careful selection which would lead the viewer´s eyes towards the most sensitive aspects of his work which stress the light, its brightness, its contrasts and its intensity.
Through this exhibition we are able to familiarise ourselves with the seriousness and dedication of the artist towards photography in the latter years of his life in which his creative potential was channelled into his camera. In spite of always feeling that it was a pastime, it was a serious eye injury which led to him permanently losing his sight in his right eye which lead to his finding the ideal form of expression in photography which also was a form of relaxation for him of the strict regime of rigorousness required by painting.

LOEWE continues to work to promote cultural and artistic activities

loewe

LOEWE, the Spanish luxury house, has signed a collaborative agreement with the Association of Friends of the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Ibiza, MACE, for the opening of a ´Summer Shop´ in the museum. The space will host the brand’s John Allen collection, inspired by the work of the British artist, along with a selection of Summer 2015 ready to wear.

The ´Summer Shop´, which will be open from 28 July through 6 September, reflects LOEWE’s desire to support MACE as part of the brand’s active engagement with art and culture. John Allen´s work is characterized by an extraordinary sense of colour and abstracted scenes of the British landscape, and is the starting point for the collection of accessories that he designed for the brand, alongside Jonathan Anderson, creative director of LOEWE. ´Falling Leaves´, ´Cornish Harbour´ and ´Pink House in Cumbria´ are the prints that have been reproduced on tote bags, canvas accessories, silk scarves, beach towels and other items. ‘John’s use of colour and the purity of his work translate perfectly to LOEWE, which stands for the very best in craft today,’ says Anderson.

LOEWE began as a cooperative of leather artisans in the center of Madrid in 1846, creating one of the world’s original luxury houses. Innovation, modernity and high-level craftsmanship have been hallmarks of the house from its beginnings to this day, In October 2013, Jonathan Anderson was appointed Creative Director. Under his helm, LOEWE reconfigures a 169-year-old legacy of craft and innovation to take it into the future.

Museu d'Art Contemporani d’Eivissa (MACE), Ibiza presents After the After, an exhibition by Douglas Gordon and Tobias Rehberger

after the afterMACE are showing new works that merge and interplay with each other to create a direct and unique visual dialogue and collaboration between the two artists. This singular exhibition marks the first time Gordon and Rehberger have approached their practice in this manner. As well as forming an aesthetic conversation, the works can also be considered a direct comment upon each other’s practice, creating a documentation of their personal and artistic relationship.

The exhibition title, After the After, considers Ibiza’s status as an iconic place of hedonism, parties and decadence while examining the ‘after-point’ that occurs when this ultimately comes to an end, a time of emptiness and paranoia when one should not be left alone. The works in the exhibition range in media including film, painting, and sculpture and are situated both within the confines of the museum and displayed outside in the surrounding city environment.
