Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno is, some might say, more than a museum. Its exhibitions, mainly temporary, are meant to promote the names and the works of contemporary international artists who have contributed substantially to the artistic life of the world. However, the center also pays attention to the Spanish and Canarian artists worthy of being brought in the public eye. Besides such exhibitions, the center organizes courses, seminars and other related activities meant to make visitors understand the collections they are about to see. All in all, what Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno tries, successfully for that matter, to do, is to create both a coherent image of the history of art during the 20th century and not to overlook the most up to date trends, names and works.
