Contemporary Spanish art has entered one of the most creative periods of its history. Young artists’ creations have captured the attention of top agents throughout the art world. Critics, gallerists, dealers, and museums support their work and pay them well-deserved recognition through awards, excellent reviews, shows, and purchases.
Sponsored by the Embassy of Spain in Washington, Spanish Young Art: The New Generation offers us a fresh new look at Spanish contemporary art. With a selection of seven artists and their pieces in various media such as video, photography, painting, drawing, and industrial design, this exhibit, curated by Tania Tapia Paz, Cultural Advisor of the Consulate General of Spain in Houston, aptly demonstrates the immense talent of this new generation. From April 27 to May 15, 2011, the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago presents this exhibition of the youngest, most promising artists of the contemporary scene in Spain.
