Antoni Miró Research Chair in Contemporary Art

The Antoni Miró Research Chair in Contemporary Art was created in 2015 to foster, promote and enlarge knowledge on contemporary art, especially in Valencian. This was possible thanks to the cooperation between the University of Alicante, Antoni Miró himself, the Otos Town Hall and the Alcoi Town Hall. This Research Chair was created as a hub for reflection, debate, search and promotion in the area of Contemporary Plastic Art, as well as a way to connect it with other artistic expressions such as literature, music, cinema, and even philosophy.
