The format of the Biennale d'Art Ciutat d'Amposta (BIAM) has evolved over the previous eleven editions (1989-2011) and it represents a powerful showcase for the emergent creativity of the country. Its inclusion in the structure of our art centre’s programmes led to the BIAM biennale redefining its organisational core and management model. A greater internationalization and uniqueness in its work aims to convert the event into a veritable thermometer of contemporary art creation, leading to a subsequent drawing up of maps and the development of effective networks within the territories involved in this emerging art creativity.
The Lo Pati art centre in Amposta aims to be a catalyst at the core of all the visual arts projects and initiatives created in the Terres de l’Ebre region. We focus on developing exhibition programmes, and on education, art production and creating an art collection and archives in accordance with our role in the Catalan Visual Arts Centres Network.
Our project’s uniqueness lies in the relationship between art and nature. The importance of the value of nature as a characteristic feature of this area, and the complicity and closeness of the neighbouring Terres de l’Ebre Museum lead to lines of work and collaborations which support this goal. These values are the seeds of the idea of our centre as a meeting point between culture, nature and landscape. The BIAM is the backbone to the centre’s project in this sense, working to fulfil these ambitions and value the proximity of artistic works based on these features.
