Instituto Cervantes presents a collection of twenty-four drawings, the work of cartoonist Andrés Rábago, also known as El Roto, who is renowned for his satirical cartoon contributions to the Spanish newspaper El País. This exhibition will also include 16 panels by American political cartoonist Jeff Danziger, whose work appears daily on The New York Times website, The Huffington Post, and the National Memo. His work has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The New Yorker, The International Herald Tribune, LeMonde, and The Moscow Times, among others.

The opening reception of the exhibition will include a roundtable discussion featuring Andrés Rábago and Jeff Danziger. The use of graphic satire in Spain and the United States will be explored between these two gifted cartoonists, along with questions from the audience. The exhibit will run from March 15 through June 10.
