ART AL VENT XVI

FROM AUGUST 14th UNTIL 8th SEPTEMBER

Currently ART AL VENT is the most important outside Exposition of textile creation of Spain, it is also the most international exhibition which is held in the Comunidad Valenciana.

The 16th Edition, which is inaugurated the 14th of August of 2019, it can be visited in calle La Bassa and calle Duquesa de Almodóvar of Gata until the 8th of September,it assembles 81 authors' works from 19 different countries, originated from 4 continents.

The popular tradition of placing bedspreads in the balconies for a procession, has been a few decades ago much established in our region, the Marina Alta. Exceptionally, this ancient tradition has stayed very alive in the municipality of Cat of Gorgos.

Aware of this fact, the School of Experimental Plastic Arts A. Vives, dependent of the Gata de Gorgos Town Hall, reflected on the possibility of combining the creation textiles contemporary with the tradition existing, there became ART AL VENT.The works are for this reason, the same size as the traditional bed cover, nothing can disturb the free flow of the fabrics moved by the wind, they prioritize the textile creations and the rigid elements or heavy are excluded.To insist on the rereading of a tradition, the path of the sample goes from the street Duquessa d'Almodóvar, la Bassa street until the Plaza de España, where there are shops of crafts and that has given to the town the reputation of center of trade. In some parts of La Bassa street, as well as in the Church Square are hung in the days of procession the traditional bed covers.

This event, which attracts every year hundreds of visitors, joins the artisan tradition of the municipality and the variety of shops and dining establishments as a tourist attraction of the town.

In addition, during the exhibition, the Culture Councillorship organizes concerts, lectures and recitals, ...  in thesame itinerary of the Exhibition that they cheer up the nights of August and invite neighbors and visitors to enjoy the exhibit and the streets of the town at sunset.
