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).

Benito Pérez Galdós. The Truth of Human Nature

27 March - 15 August 2021
IES Canarias Cabrera Pinto (La Laguna, Spain)
The writings of Benito Pérez Galdós (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1843-Madrid, 1920) paint an extraordinary picture in words of Spanish nineteenth-century customs and history. This nineteenth-century novelist, a man imbued with the positivist philosophy, liberalism and anticlericalism of his time, depicted the world he saw and was interested in with a universally acclaimed art. The exhibition surveys the life of the Canary-born writer on the centenary of his death. It is organised chronologically and divided into the four essential periods in his life. The biographical and personal literary content is presented in the cultural, historical and political context of the period. All the components of the show are designed to be educational. Following the basic chronological arrangement of his life and work within the cultural context of the period, it explores several themes: the literary scene, the political environment, his travels around Europe, and the importance of music, the graphic arts and painting in his oeuvre.
50 Photographs with a Story

50 Photographs with a Story

26 March - 07 September 2021
Version 1. 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.

Liverpool Biennial (Liverpool, United Kingdom)
The 11th edition of Liverpool Biennial: "The Stomach and the Port" takes place from 20 March – 6 June 2021.

Acción Cultural Española supports the participation of Spanish artists, selected by the Biennial: Daniel Steegmann Mangrané and Teresa Solar.

DMA, Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, 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.

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

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

18 March - 16 May 2021
Alameda de San Antón (Cartagena, 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.

A lyrical and visual tour of that “dying world”, as Miguel Delibes called it, an inland Spain that, although hit hardly, resists to disappear completely.
A quel paese. Rogelio López Cuenca

A quel paese. Rogelio López Cuenca

12 March - 13 June 2021
Real Academia de España en Roma (Roma, Italy)
Within the framework of the program of activities related to the 150th anniversary of the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome, in the last three years a series of exhibitions have been held that review the trajectory of former scholarship holders for whom their stay in Rome was a milestone. turning point in his career. This cycle began with Gregorio Prieto and his photographic production, whose exhibition took place in the spring of 2018, and continued in 2019 with Pepe Espaliú, where a look at the last years of this artist's life and his unknown stage as Scholar at the Academy. The Academy continues this cycle with this retrospective of Rogelio López Cuenca, who, based on his scholarship at this institution in the 1994-1995 academic year, reinforced his international projection, and especially his relations with Italy. For this reason, works will be exhibited mostly after his stay in Rome or in relation to the city itself. In this way, the Academy intends to underline the importance of the generations of scholarship recipients who continue in active production and were / are / will be key in the contemporary art scene of our country, a fact that in this case is evidenced in the monographic exhibition that recently took place. He has dedicated to the artist in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía ("Going reading, giving place"). "A QUEL PAESE" is the first anthological exhibition of Rogelio López Cuenca (Málaga, 1959) in Italy. Among the most significant artists of his generation, López Cuenca has been carrying out research work for almost four decades with an important critical component that is evidenced in the political and poetic dimension of his artistic practice. The exhibition exhibits about 15 pieces from the early 1990s until today, among which we find some large installations that address recurring themes in his work: migration policies, historical memory, the spectacularisation of culture, the tourist reconversion of contemporary cities, colonial and institutional criticism. As the enigmatic title of this exhibition shows, attention to the semantic potentials of language and its use is the critical strategy that embodies the unconventional way of López Cuenca, poet before visual artist, in his purpose of resignifying and rethinking reality, beyond the fiction imposed by the dominant discourse. The exhibition takes place in the spaces of the monumental complex of the Academia de España, on a route that goes beyond the exhibition rooms accessed from the cloister, occupying spaces that are exceptionally open to the public such as the terrace-garden and the co-working, continuing in the nearby Fondazione Baruchello and infiltrating the public space of the city.

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.
