IBIZA, SPAIN - LIO MALCA announces the opening of a new dynamic exhibition space on the island of Ibiza, Spain beginning of August 2015.
The exhibition space will showcase Lio Malca’s and his family’s collection, consisting of remarkable original contemporary artworks, sculptures, photography and new media works by: Nobuyoshi Araki, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Marco Brambilla, George Condo, Keith Haring, Vik Muniz, Kenny Scharf and Andy Warhol among many others.
A curated exhibition will inaugurate the space, featuring the monumental sculpture piece by New York artist KAWS, entitled “CLEAN SLATE,” measuring seven meters tall. The sculpture debuted in Harbour City, Hong Kong, and more recently in Shanghai. The sculpture will be on view for the first time in Ibiza beginning of August through October 2015.
“I have been visiting Ibiza and from day one wondered how could I give back to the island. After 10 years I came across LA NAVE, and it was one of the answers - I felt it was the right time and space to make these pieces accessible to the public,” said Lio Malca. “My vision is to create an exhibition space that aims to not only be a celebration of the artwork it will showcase, but also to celebrate the island of Ibiza itself,” Malca said.
Malca transformed the old salt warehouse, La Nave, into the groundbreaking 8,000 sq. ft. exhibition space set along the Mediterranean Sea.
The exhibition space embodies Lio Malca’s deep commitment to arts and culture, which transcends in all of his projects.
