ART FOUNDATION MALLORCA COLLECTION
The CCA Kunsthalle is pleased to announce the next exhibition with the latest acquisitions from the ART FOUNDATION MALLORCA COLLECTION. The focus of the AFM is cutting-edge contemporary art from all around the world and its collection has been an important factor in the establishment of the CCA Andratx as one of the most challenging art centres in Spain. A unique opportunity to see the extraordinary art works of the AFM Collection at the CCA.
The exhibition is a unique opportunity for every art lover and a "must" for collectors.
Patricia Asbaek, together with internationally known curators, Friederike Nymphius and Barry Schwabsky are creating this collection. At CCA Kunsthalle the visitors will find works by artists selected from all over the world. Artists from the Nordic countries, Europe, North America as well as Asia and Africa, give their view on the most interesting perspectives of today's art.
To date AFM has collected more than hundred works where mainly paintings and photographs dominate, but the collection also includes drawings, sculptures and installation works.
AFM is the result of a large number of companies and international art lovers joining forces and creating one of the most striking collections of contemporary art of today, encouraged by Patricia Asbaek and her company AAC.
AFM & CCA Andratx
The aim of CCA Andratx is to create the ideal facilities, allowing the artist staying in the studios to develop his or her talent to the limit. New synergies occur when the resident artists inspire each other or use each other as critics, converting the residency to a unique experience. Today some of Europe's leading artists apply for residency at CCA Studios. Clearly the dream of giving artists comfortable living conditions and an open environment has been realised.
Some of the art worlds most respected curators have organised exhibitions in the impressive space of CCA Kunsthalle. CCA Andratx has become an important place to have shows for some of the most interesting contemporary artists.
Through CCA, AFM has an exclusive access to artists that would not be possible through traditional channels but AFM is also visiting key places of the art world in the search of new works.
This is a unique opportunity to see the extraordinary art works of Art Foundation Mallorca Collection, assembled here at the CCA.
