Contemporary architecture and town planning are the city of Compostela’s great unknowns.
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.
The number of seats available for the museum´s activities are subject to change as a result of potential changes in Covid-19 regulations.
Timetable: from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
To celebrate 18th May, International Museum Day, this year the ICOM’s slogan is ‘The Power of Museums.’ Its aim is to highlight the transformative potential of museums in their communities, as places of training, discovery, research, encounter and as forums for cultural exchange and knowledge sharing.
As a complement to the exhibition Pingas rompentes, the artist Carme Nogueira will carry out an activity that includes reflections on the growth of the city, its flows, and the influence of the sea and its dynamics.
CGAC participa un ano máis na celebración do día internacional dos museos proposto polo ICOM que, baixo o lema “O futuro dos museos: recuperar e reimaxinar”, invita os museos, os seus profesionais e as comunidades xurdidas arredor deles a crear, imaxinar e compartir.
En 2021 programamos actividades para diversos públicos vinculadas á música, ás artes audiovisuais, á arquitectura e ás exposicións.
