A few weeks ago the Museum of Contemporary Art of Ibiza has opened shop. A living space in which books, posters and exhibition catalogs; blouses and embroidered cushions deVicente Ganesha drawings by Jean Cocteau; Gilbert Herreyns etchings; painted silk scarves by Mary Catalan; Ibiza Salt products; elaceite extra virgin olive Can Joan Benet; or the perfumes of herbs Ibiza; among other products. An eclectic shop lit by Elena Ruiz Sastre, director of MACE, and that is becoming a compendium of influences that this museum lives from the beginning. The MACE is not a museum's contemporary art museum is Ibiza, their expressions, their tendencies, their traditions.
A gallery established on the island, not only for its expository work, but also for his work in promoting and encouraging art. As the director said some years ago: "I imagine the museum with a daily activity, with many people coming, with places to sit and chat, admire the paintings in stride. I would not want a rapid consumption of the visit. I wish people would find at the museum house of culture in the best sense of the word home, they feel it as their own ".
And what they did was open the doors to quality products from the island. Proximity products made in Ibiza in a traditional way but always revised from a contemporary perspective. Whether for production or design of their packaging. Items will become ambassadors for the Museum Island and beyond our borders. Trend products they create in their respective environments.
The store shares space with the annual installation artists create different to the glass showcase the museum building is before reaching the entrance. Currently, live products intended for sale to the work of Rom Erotitulada "Leda", the wife of Tyndareus who was impregnated on the banks of the river Eurotas by Zeus transformed into a swan. And both nearby facilities like the store, will have to conform to the space in which they must live.
