MIAC COLLECTION

The MIAC Collection was born from a close collaboration between the Cabildo (Island Council) of Lanzarote and César Manrique. The choice of the artists summoned for the opening of the First International Plastic Arts Contest, which marked the opening of the museum, assumed the first large group of works in the collection and the central axis of the collection. Among its authors, artists whose work reached its peak in the 60s of the 20th century, include names: Tápies, Guerrero, Torner, Zóbel, Sempere, Gordillo, Rivera, Le Parc, Pedro González … This original nucleus grew in the same direction and incorporated works by renowned Canarian artists of the early avant-garde: Óscar Domínguez, Pancho Lasso, Juan Ismael, and the different generations, Millares, Chirino, Cristino de Vera … Since 2000, the MIAC Collection has added photographic works and important works by authors such as Joel Peter-Witkin, Joseph Beuys or Jürgen Klauke, among others.

Activities

MIAC is developing a program of activities around its Collection, although what is important is its dynamism and the ideas that give life to the museum, conceived as a living center of culture. Contemporary artistic manifestations are inseparable from the life experiences activated by the society in which the work is produced, which leads us to new activities that are authentic expressions of creativity. It is the public that continually comes into action with the work of art and it is to them that we turn to contribute to the visual and intellectual formation of our society. ARTELANZAROTE BIENNIAL MEETING Since 2001 MIAC has organized the biennial meeting in Lanzarote, a project to stimulate artistic activity and showcase contemporary creation. The biennial meeting opens a debate between the cultural agents involved – artists, curators, architects, anthropologists, managers and citizens – to convince that art must be in contact with reality and life. Each edition addresses issues and phenomena associated with culture, art, tourism, ecology, immigration, architecture, sustainability, all of them current and current not only for the globalized world in which we live but also for unity action for Lanzarote and the Canary Islands.

Cultural management training program

We have observed in today’s society a growing need for qualified professionals who are capable of responding to the new challenges that have arisen from the cultural world itself. In many cases, the current educational and professional systems fail to provide a sufficient response to the needs and deficiencies demanded by cultural and artistic services.

Museums, foundations, associations, galleries, cultural centers, cultural services and other socio-cultural agents require qualified professionals and competent technical personnel to carry out activities and services related to the management and optimization of Culture at its best.

That is why the Cultural Management Training Program, an initiative offered by the International Museum of Contemporary Art, MIAC, dependent on the Centers of Art, Culture and Tourism of the Cabildo (Island Council) of Lanzarote. citizens of the island the possibility of working in training in the professional sector of cultural management in collaboration with professionals, technicians, artists, students, managers and citizens interested in this matter.

Aware of this lack of training, the Cabildo de Lanzarote, the University Foundation of Las Palmas and the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria have signed a specific collaboration agreement to promote this Training Program in Cultural Management, in which MIAC and the Vice President for Development

Institutional and New Technologies have jointly organized a series of activities and training actions aimed at professional improvement in the management of culture and art for the different sociocultural agents of the island, as well as for graduates and university students interested in this area of ​​knowledge.

For this we also have the academic-teaching collaboration of the Lanzarote University School of Tourism, a center attached to the aforementioned University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
