Our specific approach to curation is a vindication of younger generations, both as creators and audiences

Fundación MEDIANOCHE0 is a foundation dedicated to helping contemporary artists reach new audiences via online and physical platforms. Through institutional shows, residencies, profiles, interviews, articles by guest curators and talks, the Fundación seeks to offer a comprehensive view of its artists’ practices.

The Fundación has its headquarters in Granada, Spain. As a witness to the rise and fall of civilisations, Granada has evolved from a layering of cultures past. Whilst this is reflected in an abundance of old masters and architectural gems, the Fundación seeks to fill a perceived gap in the local cultural offer, converse with and recontextualise these traditions, and encourage others to make their mark on the city with their brand of curation. The flagship museum is being constructed and will house the permanent collection and rotating shows. The first space is now open at Gran Vía de Colón, 29, and features exhibitions that showcase different aspects of the collection. We also produce offsite exhibitions at local heritage sites facilitated by the Ayuntamiento de Granada.

The collection has a growing roster of emerging and mid-career artists from around the world and established artists who have influenced them. Our specific approach to curation is a vindication of younger generations – both as creators and audiences – and follows a particular set of narratives derived from the trends and preoccupations of a Post-Internet society.

The Fundación is committed to strengthening the fingerprint of each of its artists, not only through the in-house channels but by collaborating with larger institutions, such as the Centre Pompidou, MOMA PS1, the Long Beach Museum of Art, the Aldrich Contemporary Art MuseumKMAC, M WOODS, Pond Society, Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Museum Brandhorst. 

The Fundación also aims to be the nexus between the local creative community and the administration, so that there may be a fluid conversation that results in collaborations and better representation of these artists in the city where they live. A key goal is to work with the local University and visual arts schools to create a program that can become a powerful educational resource. Future initiatives include a residency program in collaboration with public bodies as an ode to Granada’s past as a site of pilgrimage for artists.
