Today we talk about some art exhibitions in Valencia. If you like to get to know new talents or appreciate the works of artists of the past, we invite you to read our blog. Our Spanish school El Rincónd del Tándem recommends three exhibitions you cannot miss. 😊

Summer brings time for resting and for dedicate ourselves to what we like the most. At our Spanish school we all love art and believe that there is always time to visit a good exhibition.
To help our Spanish students enjoy some cultural activity during the weekend, today we talk about art exhibitions in Valencia.

Below we speak about three of them. Take a look to choose one or all 😉

“Seres fuera de campo”

Until October 4
From Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 am to 2 pm Sunday, from 10 am to 2 pm
Fundación Chirivella Soriano, Palau Joan de Valeriola, Calle de Valeriola 13
Free entrance

“Seres Fuera de Campo” is an exhibition that brings together 50 works by the Valencian artist Mery Sales; many of which are unpublished pieces created during the lockdown.

The exhibited works focus on an artistic investigation about Simone Weil, Hannah Arendt and María Zambrano’s philosophy.
An artistic work that beyond its pictorial merits invites the public to deeply reflect on the key concepts of the three philosophies: the possibility of good for all, the “banality of evil”, and the “poetic reason”,

All the works are linked to each other by a pictorial thread represented by the red colour. Furthermore, they all tell us about invisible people, forced to live on the fringes.

A work of great interest that aim at fostering critical thinking.

“Paraísos. Impresionismo europeo y americano”

Until August 30
From Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 2 pm. Monday, from 10 am to 2 pm
Fundación Bancaja, Plaza de Tetuán, 23
Ticket: 4 euros

Paraísos. Impresionismo europeo y americano” comprises oil paintings from the Carmen-Thyssen Bornemisza Collection and offer us an impressionistic representation of nature and landscapes.

The exhibition shows works by world-wide famous painters such as Paul Gauguin, Claude Monet and Camille Pisarro and others less known to the non-expert public, such as William Louis Sontang, Guillermo Gómez Gil, Olga Sacharoff, etc.

This artistic tour is divided into 3 sections. The first, The soul of the landscape, offers an idyllic and spiritual representation of the landscape. The second, A garden in the world, focuses on human being as the creator of spaces where enjoying nature. The third, Found Paradises, brings us closer to peaceful spots, happy islands within an ordinary environment.

Finally, we inform you that the Foundation offers guided tours of the exhibitions. If you want to know more and let experts guide you in a deeper understanding of art, you can write to the address: visitasguiadas@fundacionbanjaca.es

Gülsun Karamustafa

Until October 18
From Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am. To 7 pm. Friday, from 10 am. to 9 pm.
IVAM, Calle Guillem de Castro 118
Free entrance

The IVAM museum has just opened the very first exhibition of the work of Gülsun Karamustafa in Valencia. A Turkish artist internationally recognized for her originality in the world of contemporary art.

All her works are inspired by the Instanbul cultural diversity and richness. A city that has always been the crossroads of different cultures, East and West, Europe and Asia.

This diverse world is reflected in a set of works that celebrate plurality, using traditional and everyday objects, such as fabrics and rugs, in an original way.

A fascinating work that honours the encounter between cultures.

We hope that this blog has motivated you to visit art exhibitions in Valencia.
As always, we encourage you to take advantage of free time to rest, get to know Valencia and practice Spanish outside the classroom.

Our Spanish school El Rincón del Tándem wishes you a happy weekend.

See you soon!
