One of the proposals that stands out for this weekend is the recently inaugurated exhibition “Perdidos en la ciudad” [Lost in the city], at IVAM in Valencia. More than 100 artists and almost 300 works (paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos) have made this exhibition possible. The objective is to allow us to get to know the multiple visions, different spaces and the vast amount of human existences that have shaped life in the cities in the last century through the works in the IVAM collection.

The first concert is at 18.00 with Oslo Sinfonietta: Ø, an instrumental ensemble which specialises in Norway’s oldest contemporary music, followed by Japanese multi-instrumentalist Otomo Yoshihide + Paal Nilssen-Love, at 20.00.
