Since 7 October, the Museo de la Ciudad in Valencia (Plaza del Arzobispo, 2, Valencia) is displaying the exhibition entitled “Arte contemporáneo en el patrimonio municipal”, which presents contemporary art as part of the city’s heritage. Certain to be one of the most interesting to visit in Valencia this year, this new exhibition is a complete compendium of the main leaders in Valencia of contemporary art during the 60s, 70s and 80s, bringing together 35 pieces from 32 renowned Valencian artists.
Funded by the Valencian town council, this new exhibition includes artists such as Equipo Crónica, Equipo Realidad, Anzo, Manuel Boix, Carmen Calvo, Juan Genovés, Artur Heras, El Hortelano, Manuel Mompó, Joaquín Michavila, Francisco Sebastián, Eusebio Sempere, Jordi Teixidor, Manolo Valdés, Salvador Victoria and José María Yturralde. The art on display includes a never before seen piece by Anzo, as well as the original Feria de Julio poster by Josep Renau.
The Museo de la Ciudad in Valencia is located in a stately building (the old Palacio del Marqués de Campo) in the historic centre of the Valencian capital and only a few metres from the Basílica de la Virgen and the Almudín.
