-The Valencia Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) will be holding two new and highly recommendable exhibitions. First, ‘Annette Messager. Púdico – Público’, where a sample of the artist’s works will be displayed. This artist is known for using every-day objects traditionally seen as having very little value, and putting them to different uses to change the feelings that they evoke. Also, ‘Against the tide. Half a century of Valencian female artists’ will be open until Sunday 2nd September. This exhibition recreates the path that Valencian female artists have had to take to achieve visibility and professionalisation, starting at the end of the Primo de Rivera dictatorship and the Second Republic, continuing with the Franco regime and ending with the 1980s.

-The Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias (Asturias Fine Arts museum) is holding the exhibition ‘Trazos de la palabra: viñetas de Revista de Occidente’, which displays original drawings and works by renowned artists that were used to illustrate some of the covers of the Revista de Occidente magazine.

-The Foto Colectania Foundation brings you its new exhibition ‘Saul Leiter: In search of Beauty’, with 130 colour and black and white photographs showing all of Leiter’s facets and including his most iconic images. Leiter took photographs of the streets of New York during six decades from an intimist perspective. The exhibition will be open to the public until 21st October.

-The Joan Miró Foundation brings you its latest exhibition at Espai 13, part of the La posibilidad de una isla cycle (‘The possibility of an island’), by Lisa Gideonsson and Gustaf Londré, two Swedish visual artists who have been working as an artistic duo since 2009 and who often engage with aspects such as temporality, the body and the environment, exploring the relationships established between these elements through performance, video, installation and text.

-’La luz negra’ (Black light), an exhibition that shows how a number of secret traditions have influenced contemporary art since the fifties up until the present day. The exhibition will be open until October 21st at the Barcelona Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB).
