The new Public Visual Arts Facilities System of Catalonia (SPEAV) aims to structure a stable framework of collaboration between visual arts facilities that leads to cooperative and enriching action. As such, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) has been placed at the head to structure regional cooperation between the system’s visual arts facilities in different categories.

In addition to the MACBA, SPEAV members include regional visual arts centres such as the ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies, the Bòlit Centre d’Art Contemporani de Girona, the Centre d’Art la Panera de Lleida, the Centro de Arte Tecla Sala de l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, the Fabra i Coats Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, the Mataró Art Contemporani, the Mèdol Centre d’Arts Contemporànies de Tarragona and Lo Pati Centre d’Art Terres de l’Ebre d’Amposta, as well as local art centres and spaces devoted to spreading contemporary art in local and/or supralocal contexts.

Within this framework, the MACBA acts as a point of reference and is working on becoming a space for convergence and support for the rest of the visual arts facilities in Catalonia in various fields, such as research, creation and production, dissemination and visitor outreach, asset registration and documentation and international promotion.
