La Ribot stands out in contemporary arts for her research in the living arts and the multiple relationships that are established between them, music, dance, theater or performance, among others. His knowledge of dance and choreography has been merging into a compact whole with the visual, film and action art, in such a way that his artistic practice has focused on establishing links and inventing dialogues between disciplines and artists. , including diversity, precariousness and the ephemeral.

Paseo de la Senda (exterior Museo Bellas Artes Alava) (Vitoria, España)
Throughout the last centuries countless Basques crossed the Atlantic, sometimes with dishonest intentions, others with the hope of looking for a new opportunity, but always guided by a restless and adventurous spirit. Between 2003 and 2019, photographer David Quintas organized several photographic expeditions to Latin American countries, the United States and Canada, covering more than 20,000 kilometers of asphalt and immortalizing places, names, customs, anecdotes and architectures that still preserve the stamp of Basque emigrants. . ‘Basque Way’ crosses the continent from end to end and recovers surprising and exciting testimonies from those who went to America without a return ticket. To honor the memory of those lives, as bland as they are extraordinary, the street exhibition is made up of 12 cubes that run through 12 stories (‘destinations’) and a great variety of contextual photos (‘road stops’). The 12 destinations are written by the journalist and writer Martín Ibarrola, they describe events and historical figures with a style halfway between the journalistic and the literary. Stories of lives that, although they have been extensively documented, do not enjoy the media or social recognition they deserve.

Azaña: Intellectual and statesman

Azaña: Intellectual and statesman

30 April - 06 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.

50 Photographs with a Story

22 April - 20 June 2021
Paseo Doctor Fernández Iparraguirre (Guadalajara, España)
#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.

In this way, the current exhibition wants to reflect on how we can integrate art into the Museum's discourse and make its value and meaning understandable to new generations of visitors.  Prehistoric art has been recognized by UNESCO through the protection of a longstanding relationship of rock art sites around the world. Spain is one of the countries with the highest number of declared sites in this field. Since the pioneering declaration of the Altamira Cave (1985), later expanded to many of the caves with Palaeolithic art on the Cantabrian coast (2008), passing through the enormous list of sites in the Mediterranean arch with shelters of Levantine and schematic art (1998 ), completed with the cross-border declaration formed by the Côa Valley in Portugal (1998) and the Siega Verde area of ​​Salamanca (2010), until the very recent declaration of the Cultural Landscape of the Risco Caído and sacred mountains of Gran Canaria (2019).

It came to Europe through the Arabs, who in the 8th century brought it to the Iberian Peninsula. The chess that is played throughout the world today was created in Spain at the end of the 15th century, when the queen became the most powerful piece. From there it spread to western Europe and the Americas. Its common language allows people to communicate regardless of race, language, religion, age or gender. The Spain Pavilion in Expo Dubai 2020, in line with the theme of this universal exposition of "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" invites all member countries to participate in an event that aims to "increase intelligence for life" and expand awareness of the potential of chess as a key educational tool, as supported by sound scientific studies. Given the unanimous opinion that education is the best tool for ensuring an intelligent future, what better than a game that consists of thinking and developing many different values? Moreover, there are also very reliable studies that consider chess the best mental gymnastics for delaying or preventing the ageing of the brain and Alzheimer's. Event organization and schedule The event we propose is unprecedented in the world of chess in terms of the potential participants involved, as it is open to all the countries (almost 200) that will participate in Expo Dubai 2020.

5th Istanbul Design Biennial

5th Istanbul Design Biennial

15 October 2020 - 31 October 2021
Istanbul Design Biennial (Estambul, Turkey)
Curated by Mariana Pestana and organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), the 5th Istanbul Design Biennial opens on 15 October 2020. With a new structure that brings together different formats of display, the biennial is held under the title 'Empathy Revisited: Designs for more than one' with participants from various countries and disciplines intervening in exhibition venues, outdoor spaces and digital platforms. AC/E supports the participation of Spanish artists invited by the Biennial. The Biennial reappraises its format to foreground practices of care, localism and new models of co-existence. It presents a generative programme comprising three main axes: an online series titled Critical Cooking Show, a set of research projects on the Mediterranean basin to be archived at the Library of Land and Sea and displayed at ARK Kültür, and a series of interventions in the city of Istanbul and Pera Museum titled New Civic Rituals. The projects displayed at Pera Museum and ARK Kültür will be open to visit until 15 November 2020, whereas the interventions in the city, research projects and video series will continue to evolve through 2021. This format proposes new modes of engaging with design in line with the current restrictions around social distancing articulating mostly outdoor activities directed at local audiences, while also providing content for a global spectatorship.           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by İstanbul Tasarım Bienali (@tasarimbienali) For more information: https://tasarimbienali.iksv.org/en For media inquiries: media@iksv.org  #istanbuldesignbiennial #empathyrevisited
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.
