Visitors to Merkarte invited to vote for favourites
Tenerife Cabildo has organised the 15th edition of Merkarte, the Art Market, which will be held from December 3rd to January 5th at the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
This activity offers the most recent creations of 35 young Canarian artists at affordable prices ranging from 40 to 500 euros.
Details of the new edition of Merkarte were presented at a press conference by the insular councillor of youth, equality and historical heritage, Josefa Mesa, who has influenced the 15 years of history of this activity.
Many of the artists who have taken part have since consolidated their career, with the event serving to promote the talent of more than 450 authors.
As in previous editions, visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artists by pressing a button placed on the panel or showcase where the works are located. Each vote will be reflected immediately on the adjacent screens located in each of the rooms. The public prize for the eight most voted artists will consist of the organisation of two exhibitions and the partition into the activity “Merkarte en gira”.
