The Embassy of Spain in Washington D.C. presents the new cultural program SPAIN arts & culture Spring/Summer 2017

Washington, D.C.– The Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C. presents the Spring/Summer 2017 edition of the cultural program

 This blooming season, our spotlight goes to Spanish Architecture. We pay homage to contemporary architects for their outstanding achievements, contributions, and interactions in the US and globally; and for their role as strategists and futurists who affect the big scheme of things.

Two complementary exhibits EXPORT and ALTERNATIVAS/ES, on show from April to June in Washington DC, will showcase how Spanish architects have kept the ball moving forward in the face of economic adversities, giving form to uplifting and amazing buildings, landscapes, and cities in our country and overseas. ALTERNATIVAS/ALTERNATIVES features 22 jury-selected projects at the 13th Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism (XII BEAU), and EXPORT offers a global analysis of the current state of Spanish architecture outside our borders

In Visual Arts, the Meadows Museum in Dallas presents the exhibition Between heaven and Hell: the drawings of Jusepe Rivera, , a joint venture with the Prado Museum, The Prado's finest artworks will also be present in the streets of Santa Fe through large-scale productions.

Literature is another axis of this program. We celebrate the 150th anniversary of Rubén Darío's birth and the 25th Poetry Marathon in Spanish. Three contemporary authors will be on tour, from renowned Manuel Rivas to emerging and innovative narrators such as Andrés Barba and Alejandro Palomas.

Cinema: We will travel back to Spain´s recent history through a comprehensive retrospective of our iconic filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, and learn about the remarkable history of Spanish animation that will be revealed in the series From Doodles to Pixels during the month of April.

Our offer on music and performing arts has become increasingly diverse to please the demand of the American audience. Gifted dancer Nacho Duato, Jazz flamenco pianist Chano Dominguez, virtuoso classical piano player Javier Perianes, or thriving rock bands, such as Izal or Yung Beef are great examples of the diversity of musicians that will perform all over the U.S. this season.

All around the country, SPAIN arts & culture will strive to provide you with fresh, worthwhile and heightened experiences, while attempting to make connections between our creative sectors.
