Just a quick note on PHOTOESPANA which is now underway in Madrid through July 25. This major photo arts festival is a combination of exhibits, education and art collection.
PHotoEspaña, International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, set out
to become a Festival generated by popular demand in 1998, and today it has
earned its place as one of the most relevant visual arts events in the world.
PHotoEspaña is one of the central international forums for photography.
Each year the Festival attracts more than six hundred thousand people and receives
acclaim from prestigious critics, making it the most popular cultural event in Spain.
The Festival is an exceptional occasion for discovering images, videos and
installations created by outstanding national and international photographers and
Since the first edition of the Festival, 723 exhibitions have been hosted in the city’s
main museums, art centres and galleries. The shows are complemented by
pedagogic and professional programs designed for diverse audiences.
The heart of the Festival in Madrid is located along the Paseo de Castellana, that
runs through the city centre. For the past two years the city of Cuenca has become
a neighbouring location of the Festival.
With a falling Euro and discount fares to Spain … a long weekend is doable and inexpensive compared to prior years.
