This exhibition, which will open in Madrid on 14 October,
proposes an exploration of works that draw on nature, either
by adopting organic forms or incorporating natural elements,
to reflect on colour and form through the plasticity inherent
to our ecosystem. The Natural Flow of Things is
a group show curated by Tania Pardo that meditates on the
most basic, contemplative acts of creation.
December 6 and 8, La Casa Encendida will be closed except for the exhibitions. Cafeteria opens December 8.
The Arab Spring did not blossom into democracy, as many
hoped, nor did it spread to all Arab nations. Syria is the
paradigm of a regime that clings to power with the support of
countries like Russia and Iran, while the so-called rebels
are aided by powers like the US, the EU and Saudi Arabia.
This foreign interference is fuelling the greatest
humanitarian crisis of the 21st century.
In December we will offer a varied programme of cultural
activities for the whole family to enjoy: special film
sessions, journeys to fantastic islands, the presentation of
a book published by La Casa Encendida, the Book Friends fair,
and activities and workshops in the Babybrary and Kids'
New session in our "dramatic reading" series, where we will
shine a spotlight on a hidden chapter of our recent history.
We will remember those who fought for the principles that now
guide our democratic way of life (equality, justice,
freedom), yet whose efforts have not received the
acknowledgement, much less the gratitude, they deserve.
American artist B. Wurtz is known for gathering and
accumulating ordinary objects, mostly related to consumer
habits, which he later assembles and groups into sculptural
pieces. Rather than sublimating or altering the meaning of
these items for everyday use, the sculptures underscore their
formal quality and function.
Produced in association with Le Monde diplomatique
(Spanish edition) and Fundación Mondiplo, this exhibition is
a survey of some of the most dramatic transformations that
certain borders have undergone deep within our continents,
driven by dynamics of past centuries which are still present
today and auger equally mutable futures.
