Activities

The CGAC's Activities and Pedagogical Department develops its programme with a primary goal: to bring art to society through the rigorous analysis of critical issues inherent in contemporary artistic activity.

Film seasons and conferences, workshops, seminars and concerts, make up the centre’s fundamental offer of activities, aiming to involve a wide range of audiences from the professional sector of the world of art and culture to an increasingly larger group of artists and fine art and history students, not to mention all those interested in the evolution of art and aesthetic reflection.

At the same time, the CGAC develops specific programmes for schools and colleges as well as guided tours, with the purpose of providing the various groups who come to the museum with the necessary tools to understand contemporary art and, from there, the world we live in.

For every film that comes into being, there are many more that are relegated to the limbo of the unfilmed. The latter are the only perfect films, because they exist only as a potential, as an idea or a dream, and have never clashed with reality. In contrast, the ones that have materialised will always and necessarily be imperfect, a catalogue of promises and resignations and, maybe, of some happy encounters. ‘Anything is possible if it is…
