From June 18 to August 29, 2021, in the rooms of the Ateneu of the Iluro Foundation, you can see the exhibition "Art and Party", organized by the Museum Archive of Santa Maria de Mataró for its 75th anniversary, showing graphic material from more than a century.

He Santa Maria Archive Museum - Matar Local Studies Centeror commemorates its 75th anniversary with an exhibition at the Ateneo de la Fundación Iluro that shows, for the first time, its large collection of posters and programs of the festival of The Santes, the most complete that is preserved, with unique specimens from the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.

The posters for the Festa Major from 1894 to 2021 form a visual tour of the city’s history and graphic art. In addition to the hundred posters on display in chronological order, the exhibition includes the official programs, the promotion Mataroní and those of Advertising Fermalli which have been nurturing the traditional protocol of the party and its evolution.

The exhibition invites you to explore the powerful imprint that posters and programs, with their language and plasticity, imprint on the festive celebration. Especially the poster, a central piece, which projects the symbolic image that each artist has of Les Santes.

The posters thus make up a single canvas painted by many artists, which fertilizes the party's imagination over time and each year evokes the value of novelty.

The exhibition will open today and can be visited until August 29 in the rooms of the Ateneu of the Iluro Foundation, in the Riera de Mataró. TheMaresme County Archive, Cabré Junqueras, Folgarona, MataroAudiovisual, Advertising Fermalli, Colomer Hardware Store, Woods Pram, Finques Pous, Copy-Rap, Avet-Set i Boixet shoes, have also collaborated to make this exhibition possible.
