Introduction

The Barcelona Contemporary Art Centre is a cultural facility that aims to produce, disseminate and exhibit contemporary art projects from local and international artists. Its sphere of work is the visual arts and it is primarily focused on the transitional space between the circuits of emerging art and firmly established and recognized artistic careers.

In the first phase the centre occupies a space of 450 m2 plus 150 m2 located at the entrance to the complex. Common services will be shared with the Art Factory.
The centre was created with the intention of expanding as needs and available funds allow for the restoration and adaptation of the upper floors of the building to be continued.

Annex
Objectius estratègics del Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona

El desplegament del conjunt de l’activitat duta a terme pel Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona ha de garantir les obligacions de servei públic següents, que són considerades com a objectius estratègics del centre:
Esdevenir un centre d’art dedicat a potenciar, principalment, l’espai de transició entre els circuits de l’art emergent i les trajectòries artístiques plenament consolidades i reconegudes, tot establint un diàleg fluid entre les diverses generacions.

Generar la seva activitat basant-se en el risc i l’experimentació, oferint des de la qualitat una gran llibertat en els discursos artístics. Fomentar la multidisciplinarietat dels llenguatges artístics i l’excel·lència en els continguts.

Fomentar la interacció amb els diferents agents socials i, molt especialment, amb esdeveniments motors de la cultura i altres sectors econòmics de la ciutat.

Propiciar la creació de nous públics i assegurar les relacions del centre amb el context immediat, amb els centres educatius i amb els col·lectius susceptibles de participar en activitats de formació.

Contribuir a la consolidació i vertebració d’iniciatives culturals de qualitat des de criteris de coparticipació, coproducció i cofinançament.

Com a operador especialitzat, potenciar la connexió i el treball en xarxa amb altres agents, institucions i equipaments d’àmbit local, nacional i internacional, sobretot amb els equipaments que formen part de la Xarxa Pública de Centres i Espais d’Arts Visuals de Catalunya, així com amb les galeries d’art de la ciutat i amb les Fàbriques de Creació.

Basar el projecte i les activitats del centre en paràmetres de qualitat, d’eficàcia i de transparència en la gestió.

Maximitzar l’aprofitament de les TIC i les xarxes socials per incrementar el públic potencial i interactua-hi.

Establir un procés de desenvolupament del projecte que permeti un creixement harmònic del centre fins a assolir el dimensionament desitjable d’una manera sostenible.
