ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies is a public cultural venue which promotes the creation, production and exhibition of proposals in the visual arts, as well as in other contemporary artistic disciplines. ACVic is a territorial/local centre of the Public System of Visual Arts in Catalonia. Through its activities, it serves to encourage artistic creation, production and distribution and at the same time show itself to be a centre committed to its immediate environment. In addition, it seeks dialogue with national and international contexts to broadcast its own activities, and, in order to receive artists and cultural agents to interact with their experiences and to be involved in global issues of contemporary arts.
ACVic Centre D’Arts Contemporànies follows a trend of action centred on the relationships among educational activities, territory and social interaction. Art and education, interlaced together, facilitate production spaces which favour experimentation, and an understanding of artistic practices as practices affecting, interacting and transforming social space.
Research, production, educational actions and visibility are a main part of the programme line. It favours people active participation in many ways. ACVic aims to be part of its immediate context, facilitating activities which reflect aspects of civil, regional and territorial reality. On the other hand it is important to notice that the programme incorporates research in the sense of stimulating projects that will develop methodologies based on hypothetical works and making them possible. The basis for this research space are: the art in all its extensions and contemporary diversions and teaching from aspects which in confluence with the arts, seek to affect the social and cultural contexts of the individuals and territory establishing a place of crossing flow of ideas, of convergence and of social experience.
