-The Valencia Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) will be holding two new and highly recommendable exhibitions, including ‘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. Until November 4th.

-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.

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

-The tenth edition of the Bienal de Fotografía Xavier Miserachs will take place until October 14th in Palafrugell, Girona. You will have the chance to visit 11 exhibitions in different locations throughout the city and take part in a number of activities that will be taking place in parallel.
