IVAM Institut Valencià d'Art Modern

The Institut Valencià d’Art Modern, also known by the acronym IVAM, was the first center of modern art created in Spain, opening in 1989 in the city of Valencia. Its program of activities includes the exhibition of its art collection, the organization of temporary exhibitions and the edition of catalogues and other publications that go into the topics of the exhibits in depth, as well as the organization of conferences, courses, workshops and concerts that are related to the works on display and other areas in contemporary art. It has two sections: the Centre Julio González, a building of new construction which was inaugurated in 1989 and shows the museum collection together with temporary exhibitions, and the Sala de la Muralla, a gallery below ground level with the remains of the mediaeval ramparts of the city that houses temporary exhibitions.
