The Night of the Wolves

Last night, the Nit de l’Art was celebrated in Palma de Mallorca. 33 galleries and museums participated, showing the work of a total of some 85 artists. Why, you might well wonder, do I not show you any of the artists or any of their work? Exactly. Because the whole celebration was nothing but a hedonistic excuse for self celebration, a party, a get-together of the haves and the would-like-to-haves, of Palma’s Jeunesse Dorée, nothing but a pure merchandising exercise. The wolves were out, and howling.

If you are really interested in the art you would better have stayed at home. Or even better, you would go and see the exhibitions now, like today or any of the next few days, relaxed and in peace and quiet. I was impressed by Ferran Aguiló’s work at the Casal Solleric, by the Pebre Bord installation at the Fundació Miro, by Alberto García-Alix’s photographs at the Museu Baluard, by Imi Knoebel’s tableaux at the Galeria Kewenig and by Manolo Valdés’s paintings at the Centre de Cultura Sa Nostra. I did not manage to see Bernardí Roig’s exhibition at C. C. C. Pelaires nor Alicia Llabrés’s work at Galería Altair; both presentations sound promising.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 16th, 2010. The time was 23:12:06.

  1. Although I do not comment so often, I visit your blog regularly. Today I have written about Ramón Llull in my blog and I also refer to your blog.
    Have a nice weekend and say hello to your wife.

  2. Heisann!
    Friday the first of October my husband and I will come to Mallorca to spend a week in Port de Soller. My blogfriend Randi refers to your blog for more information.
    We have visited the island once before, two years ago. We then lived right next to the royal palace. Now we will explore the rugged west coast and have some walking tours in the mountains. Of course we will also spend a day or two in Palma. Is there a day you think we should set aside for a festival, concert or show?
    Please, tell us about the sights worth seeing. I am a teacher of art and cultural history, so the interest in old buildings, traditions, etc. are certainly presented.
    Greetings from Bjørg Nina
