»Museu de Mallorca« in Palma de Mallorca

The “Museu de Mallorca” is located in the heart of the city of Palma – in the old palace “Can Desbrull”, also known as “Ca la Gran Cristiana”.

The main task of the “Museu de Mallorca” is the preservation, research and dissemination of historical objects and materials. As part of the museum collection, they are documented and made available here.

Opening hours: Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Wednesday & Thursday 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

The museum sees itself as a civic and cultural centre that meets the research, educational and leisure needs of various user groups. A place with an immense wealth of knowledge in all areas of the history, art and culture of the island of Mallorca.

Although the building has been recently restored, it has largely retained the typical architecture of the Mallorcan capital. The numerous rooms on the various floors were carefully renovated in order to show off the collection appropriately.

In addition to exhibiting the collection, the museum has set itself the goal of hosting various projects in its spaces that promote anthropology or the art of the Balearic Islands .

So it is also the right place to celebrate the »Mallorca International Art Award 2022« and exhibit the works of the two prize winners Alba Suau and Marcelo Viquez.

The award ceremony will take place on 16.09.2022 at 7 p.m. in the courtyard of the museum. The works can be seen in the museum from 17.09.2022 to 30.10.2022.

The “Mallorca International Art Award” was created by the private initiative of a group of dedicated collectors and art lovers and will be presented for the first time in September 2022.

The jury has now announced the winners from a group of 43 participating artists.

The winner in the category of middle-career artists is Marcelo Viquez. He will receive prize money of €12,500. In the category of emerging artists under the age of 35, Alba Suau wins prize money of €5,000.

About the price

The MIA Award 2022 was created by Mercedes Estarellas, gallery owner at Kaplan Projects in Palma, and Paul Jörg Feldhoff, Ulf Appel and Anne Nowitzki from Frankfurt am Main. The initiative has come together with the aim of promoting the work of artists who live in Mallorca or are connected to the island. The creation of the “Mallorca International Art Award” is therefore of extraordinary importance for contemporary art in Mallorca. It enables the further development of artistic positions on the island. At the same time, the art prize is an important body for the promotion of contemporary art on an international level. In this way, the high level of artistic creation in Mallorca is brought into focus beyond the local borders. The group therefore attaches great importance to the permanent establishment of this art prize.

The festive award ceremony is embedded in the “Nit de l’Art” in the courtyard of the “Museu de Mallorca”. On this legendary night, all the city’s museums are open and shine in bright splendour: in late summer, the Mallorcan capital and its art scene show their best and most spectacular side. Far away from the Ballermann tourism, art and culture enthusiasts as well as artists get to know each other on the popular island. It’s the night of the year for an inspiring exchange!
