Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore, United States)
Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art, this is the first U.S. exhibition in over 35 years dedicated to the Spanish artist Juan Gris. Cubism in Color: The Still Lifes of Juan Gris highlights the artist’s pioneering and revolutionary contributions to the Cubist movement by focusing on his fascination with subjects drawn from everyday life. Through more than 40 paintings and collages that span all major periods of the artist’s evolving practice, the exhibition reveals the transformation of Gris’s innovative style and principal motifs from 1911 until 1926, one year before his tragically early death at age 40. His exquisite compositions explored the boundary between abstraction and representation, tension and stasis, color and form. As a thorough examination of Gris’s still lifes, Cubism in Color provides an opportunity to reconsider the legacy of this important yet underappreciated modernist master. See the full press release. Cubism in Color: The Still Lifes of Juan Gris is co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and The Baltimore Museum of Art. Additional support is provided by the Robert Lehman Foundation. and Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).

50 Photographs with a Story

50 Photographs with a Story

08 September 2021 - 21 February 2022
Versión 2. Embajada de España en Washington (Washington D.C, United States)
#50FotosConHistoriaExpo |  is an exhibition that surveys the history of photography in Spain over the past eight years. It shows the history behind fifty or so pictures to provide viewers with a better grasp of the essence of the work and the photographer, as well as their importance in the evolution of this discipline. They represent fifty different gazes full of nuances: documentary photographs, portraits, photojournalism, street photography and artistic photographs come together in ‘50 Photographs with a Story’.  The writer Eduardo Galeano stated that human beings are not made up of atoms but of stories. And if storytelling is the basis of our memory and all our desires, it is also, by extension, the basis of photographic language. Photography is therefore not a universal language: photographers each use a tool – the camera – to shape their own voice, their own search, their own dialogue with the observer. And at the centre of this dialogue there is always an underlying story, which can be related to the historical context, to the technique or to the people in the photograph, but always to the photographer’s gaze. 
34 Bienal de São Paulo 2021

34 Bienal de São Paulo 2021

Spring 2021
Bienal de Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
Conceived as a polyphony of voices and viewpoints on contemporary artistic production, the 34th Bienal de São Paulo – Faz escuro mas eu canto [Though it’s dark, still I sing] asserts the right to both complexity and opacity, in expressions of art and culture, as well as in the identities of individuals and social groups. To this end, the 34th edition has adopted a new format, aimed at creating a multiplicity of distinct situations in which the encounter between artworks and the public can take place.The curatorial team, which consists of Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, Paulo Miyada, Carla Zaccagnini, Francesco Stocchi and Ruth Estévez, hope to highlight how the interpretations and meanings attributed to artworks are elastic and influenced by a number of factors, including possible dialogues with other artworks shown around them. The adjustments and changes, which have being multiplied due to the Covid-19 pandemic, are an integral and relevant part of the process of insistence, transformation and fine tuning that has gone into the design of the 34th Bienal. AC/E supports the participation of Spanish artists to showcase their work and creativity.
Do you paint or draw? A survey of art through comics

Do you paint or draw? A survey of art through comics

03 September - 23 November 2021
Parque de las Meanas (Avilés, España)
#ArteYcómic | This portable exhibition surveys the art of picture stories or comics with examples by various Spanish illustrators (Ana Galvañ, Antonio Altarriba/Keko, Fermín Solís, Laura Pérez Vernetti, María Hesse, Mauro Entrialgo, Max, Pablo Auladell and Santiago García/Javier Olivares) who, using a personal and diverse language, address classical and contemporary art in their work through artists such as Bosch, Velázquez, Buñuel, Frida Kahlo, Duchamp and Picasso, among others. It also reflects the illustrators’ thoughts on various aspects of the art world: exhibitions, museums, fairs, biennials, artists, curators, critics, institutions, audience… Cartoon strips first arose in the late nineteenth century as a mass medium linked to the daily press and have undergone major changes since then. For a long time they belonged to the culture industries geared to children and teenagers, and enjoyed a small market share in the field of humour or satire for adults. Following the emergence of American underground comics and the popularity a few European illustrators and publishers enjoyed in the 1960s, the generation of so-called independent, alternative or avant-garde comic art made a powerful appearance in Spain in the 1980s, securing a foothold through fanzines, self-publishing and small independent publishers. In the twenty-first century came graphic novels and with them a new generation of illustrators, among whom women at long last enjoyed a growing presence, and initiatives such as the inclusion of comic books in major art museums.   But comic books cannot be limited to minority and specialist spaces and deserve to be present in all fields, in keeping with their popular origins. This is the aim of the exhibition, which opens in the spring of 2019 as part of the contemporary art and culture project Cáceres Abierto, and will subsequently travel to various Spanish festivals and cities.

Museo San Telmo (San Sebastián, Spain)
#ElViajeMásLargo #VCentenario | "The Longest Voyage: The First Journey around the World" is an exhibition and documentary programme that reflects on the attitude of man before a long trip into the unknown.

The Magellan–Elcano circumnavigation was the first voyage around the world in human history. It was a Spanish expedition that sailed from Seville in 1519 under the command of Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese, in search of a maritime path from Spain to East Asia through the Americas and across the Pacific Ocean, and concluded by Spanish navigator Juan Sebastian Elcano in 1522. Elcano and the 18 survivors of the expedition were the first men to circumnavigate the globe in a single expedition. Following Magellan's death in Mactan (Philippines) in 1521, Juan Sebastián Elcano took command of the ship Victoria, sailing from Borneo, the Spice Islands and back to Spain across the Indian Ocean, round the Cape of Good Hope and north along the west coast of Africa.

Azaña: Intellectual and statesman

Azaña: Intellectual and statesman

30 April - 26 September 2021
Capilla del Oidor (Alcalá de Henares, España)
#AzañaExpo | Manuel Azaña Díaz (Alcalá de Henares, January 10, 1880-Montauban, November 3, 1940) is one of the most relevant figures in the contemporary history of Spain, both admired and reviled. He was a politician, writer and journalist, president of the Council of Ministers (1931-1933) and president of the Second Republic (1936-1939). He had a prominent role at the Madrid Athenaeum, of which he was Secretary and President. He collaborated in different newspapers, edited the magazine España and founded La Pluma. He received the National Literature Prize in 1926 for a work on Juan Valera and was a notable translator from English and French. In his political dimension, Azaña is one of the main promoters of the arrival of the Republic in April 1931. The great debates of the period have his outstanding, and sometimes controversial, intervention: the Statute of Catalonia, the Agrarian Reform, the issue religious or women's vote. Not surprisingly, the Republic was identified with Azaña and Azaña with the Republic and was blamed for the outcome of the Civil War, if not its very beginning. The Exhibition aims to provide a complete image of Manuel Azaña, in its triple dimension: human, intellectual and political, underlining, in addition to his work as Minister, Head of Government and President of the Republic, his status as a prestigious intellectual, as well as the harsh conditions of his exile, which ended with his death in the French city of Montauban, where his memory is still present eighty years later. Following a chronological sequence that allows us to understand his career in different periods: his childhood and youth in Alcalá, his subsequent development in Madrid, the exhibition delves into three crucial stages in the history of Spain: the Second Republic, the Civil War and Exile. . About two hundred works from both the BNE and other Spanish and foreign institutions will be exhibited in the exhibition. For this commemoration, very little known photographs and videos have been rescued, which allow us to get closer not only to the figure and the work of Azaña, but also to the memory of his time.

Insurrecta

Insurrecta

29 June 2020 - 31 December 2021
Street exhibition (Segovia, España)
#InsurrectaBorondoSG | This project by the artist Gonzalo Borondo, organized by the Segovia City Council in collaboration with Acción Cultural Española, is part of the activities that the City Council carries out in commemoration of the V centenary of the Comuneros revolt. Insurrecta aims to generate a freely accessible urban route, using the billboards of the entire city of Segovia as a support, which turn the city into an open-air museum. Borondo conceives the project as a cultural initiative available to citizens, extolling the value of the natural landscape and placing the "NoLugares" on the tourist plane. The 32 works, spread over 17 locations, are divided into 5 chapters, suggestively spinning historical events with a personal and critical reading of the artist towards contemporary times. Gonzalo Borondo (1989) Borondo returns to Segovia, the city that saw him grow, at the end of 2019, after a fruitful professional career developed outside of Spain, which has led him to exhibit in museums, festivals and other institutions around the world. His projection of contemporary art in public spaces tries to break down the barriers between art and life, questioning the limits of the cultural heritage of the context, while paying him a respectful tribute. Borondo's work is the result of a powerful dialogue between his art and the spaces in which it is located. His most recent projects include the intervention in the Temple of Chartrons, in Bordeaux, within the framework of the Liberté! 2019, his interventions at the Contemporary Museum of Rome (2018-2019), at the Musiques Interdites Festival in Marseille, in Berlin (Urban Nation Contemporary Art Museum), and at the Altrove Festival (Italy), among many others. He has starred in solo exhibitions in Madrid, Paris and London and has murals in Kiev, London or Las Vegas.
