Bòlit, Centre d’Art Contemporani Girona, is a cultural facility with the aim of developing research, production, and exhibition programs for contemporary artistic projects. It is also deeply involved with creators and professionals from other fields of knowledge, on the local, national, and international levels.
This highly dynamic and active art center will present a full program of exhibitions and other integrated and related activities, such as workshops, lecture cycles, urban interventions, projection cycles, specific proposals, and works in progress. Initial priority is given to the content of the art center, and the initiative has been seeking participation and involvement from civil society right from the very start.
While Bòlit’s new art center building is under construction on the site of former barracks near Parc del Migdia, several city spaces have been made available for holding its exhibitions and activities. These include La Rambla Exhibition Hall (Bòlit-LaRambla) and Sant Nicolau Chapel (Bòlit-SantNicolau), as well as other areas around the city where one-off events or ongoing activities take place. In addition, two new city art spaces, Dadespai and El Niu, will provide Bòlit with the temporary infrastructure needed to develop research and production projects.
In regard to territorial scope, Bòlit will draw together and catalyze initiatives and programs carried out in Girona province, and encourage collaboration and exchange relationships between its various projects. Links will also be established between the center’s creative production and other research and creation spheres and contexts at an international level.
