Architect(s) : Egecon Srl

The Arts Pavilion was the place to be for the latest artistic news from around the world. A space for creativity. The most varied trends and the most different countries met here. The latest in avant-garde art: painting, sculpture, video montage, installations, photo montages, action painting, body art, carpets, ceramics, water, light and colour were just some of the artistic events scheduled for six months.

Every 22 days, different nations exhibited the most representative creations of their countries' plastic avant-garde. Artists of all styles and origins: Europeans, from Picasso to Chagall; Americans, from Wilfred Lamb and Guayasamin to Negret and Eleonora Carrington; Africans, from Malangatana and Takawira to Turki, and from Oceania, from Keeling to Albrecht.

But all this began long before entering the pavilion: in front of its main façade, in the huge Art Pavilion Garden, a collection of sculptures from Zimbabwe was displayed.

Last but not least, the European Community presented Twelve Sculptures, located in the outdoor garden of the monastery of Santa Maria de las Cuevas, where the most diverse styles, materials and concepts were presented by twelve young artists from as many countries: Antoni Abad (Spain); Dominique Labauvie (France); Rui Chafes (Portugal); Luk Van Soom (Belgium); Peter Logan (Great Britain); Maurice MacDonagh (Ireland); Soren Jensen (Denmark); Brigitte Schwacke (Germany); Bertrand Ney (Luxembourg); Constantine Dikefalos (Greece); Karel Goudsblom (Holland) and Nunzio (Italy).
