This year is will be the 23rd edition of the famous Nit de l’Art (art night) in Palma. Everyone comes together for this huge social occasion, celebrating art and culture all around the city. Nit de l’Art 2019 runs from the 19th to the 21st of September, starting with the Corpos de prova exhibition by Lucas Simões at the exclusive Sant Francesc Hotel on Wednesday. Each year countless people gather on the streets to enjoy exhibitions and visit all the local galleries around Palma Old Town.
It is said that up to 30,000 people will be moving around Palma during Nit de l’Art. The art event is a local twist on the traditional 'Nuit Blanche’ which started in Paris in 2002 as an initiative to celebrate contemporary art and culture which is also celebrated around the world. Here in Palma de Mallorca, all the top galleries, museums and art studios will open their doors from 19:00 until late at night, officially 23:30. Some artists also participate with pop-up stands on the streets.
