LÔAC, Alaior Art Contemporani, houses an impressive collection of contemporary artwork by internationally renowned artists such as Joan Miró, Miquel Barceló, Marina Abramovic, Jaume Plensa, Antonio Saura and Antoni Tàpies, among many others.
Located in the street calle Santiago Pons Quintana 56 (calle Baixamar before) in one of the historic centre’s most emblematic buildings, this is the only public exhibition space for a private collection of this calibre on the island of Menorca. It is also considered one of the most important in all of the Balearic Islands, with over one hundred artworks that have been lent to the Town Hall for viewing.
This initiative combines the work of well-known Spanish contemporary artists along with those of a couple of prominent foreign artists to provide both consistency and coherence to a diverse and transversal exhibition discourse of quality and historical value. The artists featuring in this artistic proposal in Alaior are participants from groups such as 'El Paso', and worthy representatives of trends such as realism, informalism, kinetics, abstract expressionism or surrealism.
LÔAC can be visited from Tuesday to Friday, from 5.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m., and Saturdays, Sundays from 10.00 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. and from 5.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.
The general admission price is 5 euros. Free entry for children under 10 years old, visits organized by non-profit organizations, teachers, researchers and tourist guides, provided they prove their condition, and unemployed people, provided they prove their situation.
For people over 65 years old, large families and holders of the youth card there is a 50% reduction of the general admission price.
LÔAC has a space exclusively dedicated to the exhibition of works by the well-known performance queen, Marina Abramović. The Abramović Chapel, located in the old church of
Gràcia (c / Coll des Palmer), has a work that has never been publicly displayed and will be shown for the first time in Alaior. This space, with free admission, is open from Tuesday
to Sunday, from 6.30 p.m to 8.30 p.m.
