One of the main points of contemporary reflection in the country. The IVAM, born from the spirit of renewal in 1986 as the Valencian Institute of Modern Art, acts as a beacon of modern art throughout the Valencian territory. From its walls, on the edges of a neighborhood of El Carmen to which it is linked, it spreads a renovating thought.
After multiple ups and downs, the IVAM challenges the society of its time as one of those jewels that guards a territory and that, instead of being just a continent, acts as a speaker of ideas. His permanent collection (from Richard Hamilton to Carmen Calvo, from Yves Klein to Julio González, from Equipo Crónica to Pinazo) is overwhelming, although it is worth looking at his constant agenda to take the pulse of a city that wants to throb.
The demonstration that art, in addition to an end, is a unique vehicle to reflect -among other things- on the belonging to our own environments.
