Directions to Vigo Museum of Contemporary Art, MARCO
Vigo Museum of Contempary Art (MARCO) opened to the public in 2002 and became one of the newest museums in Galicia. Located in the heart of the city's commercial quarter, i.e.the pedestrian and centrally situated Principe Street, the museum occupies what was formerly Vigo's Prison and Court (1880). Although its defined ias a 'Museum', there is no permanent collection at MARCO. It functions as an art centre focusing its programming on temporary exhibitions and a variety of parallel activities placing emphasis on educational training.
The museum's main purpose is to communicate, to connect with the visitors and to create and promote cultural consumption habits, a difficult, long-term challenge. MARCO has focused its programming on temporary exhibitions of a thematic and group nature and since 2009 complemented with a new programme of solo shows. The educational program - visits and workshops for schoolchildren, activities for families, summer workshops for children, courses for adults, guided visits, artists workshops - and a whole range of parallel activities complementing the exhibitions - conferences, seminars, lectures, concerts, seasons of cinema... - in addition to the services offered by the Library-Documentation Centre and the activities organised by the Friends of MARCO.
MARCO offers the possibility of renting its conference room - located in the museum's entrance hall with independent access from the museum - in order to hold conferences, seminars, meetings and other events. The advantages of the space are multiple: located in the city centre it has seating for 150 people and modern technical equipment, and it combines the historical significance of the building with the image of MARCO as a contemporary art centre. The rental includes several free services and the possibility of guided visits to the exhibitions. For all these reasons this space is employed by a range of institutions and companies with a very diverse nature.
Availability of the Conference Room is limited and the level of occupation varies depending on MARCO's own programming over the year. For any further enquiries on availability, proceedings and rates, please contact: Marta Viana / Pilar Souto
