Mallorca's Unknown Face

The Balearic Island surprises visitors with an unexpected variety of Modern Art. Far from the crowded touristic hotpots, environmental problems and the famous party areas of the 'Ballermann', Mallorca has a lot to offer for art lovers. There are some 40 museums spread all over the island, which is truly record-breaking considering Mallorca’s size. In Palma, galleries dominate the urban landscape and in the rural areas, art villages like Deia, Valldemossa and Santanyi invite visitors to go for a stroll.

Furthermore, there are various large-scale sculptures of international artists to be explored all around the cities’ plazas and streets. Upon arrival at the airport of Palma, 'Anfora', a 15-metre high sculpture by Benk Jakober and his wife Yannik Vú receives airline passengers. In Alcúdia, in the north of the island, the 'Red Horse' by Aligi Sassu catches one’s eye and in Sa Pablo beams the white 'Sail' of American artist Betty Gold. Step by step, Mallorca intends to become a true open-air museum of Modern Art.

The annual 'Nit de l’Art', the Night of Art in Palma, has become a popular festival of contemporary art. Every year in September, galleries and museums open their collections to the public, with free entrance until midnight and open-air concerts. In Valldemossa, Soller and other communities, art events take place during the night. Not only galleries open their doors, there are also free exhibitions in gardens and parks.  

'Es Baluard' and 'Fundación Juan March' in the capital are Mallorca’s most famous museums, followed by the 'Centre Cultural in Andratx' (CCA), situated only half an hour from Palma. The private museum consists of a large exhibition hall and two art galleries. It was founded in 2001 by the Danish couple Patricia and Jacob Asbaeck. The CCA consideres itself the largest centre for Contemporary Art on the Balearic Islands and in Europe. It brings various international exhibitions to Mallorca every year.
