This exhibition is a unique opportunity that presents in Spain the history and cultural richness of a remote and little-known enclave but with which, nevertheless, there are very close links, as can be traced by the footprint left by Spanish culture in its identity.
The exhibition proposes a journey through the main historical periods of the island, to then delve into the main identity traits of the Chamoru culture and thus show some significant expressions of the artistic production of local creators today.
The exhibition, which has the support of Acción Cultural Española, is part of a cycle of four exhibitions entitled 'Let's go around the world' organized by the National Museum of Anthropology within the framework of the Commemoration of the First Around the World. Its objective is to offer a vision of the transformations that world cultures have undergone in recent centuries and the challenges they face.
Curatorship: Sandra Montó, Carlos Madrid, Lourdes Pardos, Patricia Alonso, María Jesús Jiménez, Leo Pangelinan y Fernando Sáez.
Organised by: Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte de España, Museo Nacional de Antropología, Acción Cultural Española AC/E
