AVAART (curator: Txema Agiriano)


AVAart: a space for art, innovation and culture in Gijón (Spain)
Espacio AVAart is a private institution dedicated to the promotion of art and creativity. Our basic objective focusses on working with both well-known artists and emerging talents on a national and international level, fostering and providing impetus to their work and their creations.
Espacio AVAart offers art collectors and enthusiasts, both public and private, a wide-ranging catalogue of works that may be purchased or acquired on hire. The artists involved in our artistic initiative come from several different countries and parts of Spain; their work provides a varied, multidisciplinary overview of artistic creation in Europe today.
Espacio AVAart believes that innovation and technological experiment should form an integral part of the art world, and thus attempts to stimulate their introduction into the process of publicising artists' creations, exhibiting and promoting their work by using different on-line applications (virtual resources and tools, QR codes, Augmented Reality, etc.) and social networks (Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and by forming virtual artistic communities so that artists themselves can share experiences, motivate creativity and work together on joint projects.
Espacio AVAart also proposes as an objective to build a network of contributors open to the participation of artists, educators, cultural management, researchers, etc. to conceive, develop and jointly put into practice new, quality artistic projects. In short, we aspire to become a centre for dynamizing art and culture in Asturias, not just by setting up installations and exhibitions of nationally and internationally known artists but also by means of programming joint artistic and cultural events in our multifunctional space.
