Sometimes our blog tries to surprise you with suggestions that are unconventional and definitely, not mainstream, because we believe art is about risking and transformation forces as well about beauty. Don't you?

As a photo uploaded to our Instagram account we know you follow in real love says 'Culture is not just great texts, it is also Oohs and Aahs', this time art stories join both into Anna Peters' Caso de Estudio as this Friday is our Featured Exhibition of the Week.

Let us tell you a little bit about this great opportunity to learn about brave women making art in the spanish sixties panorama. A slight overview on Anna Peters' work which will be shown at IVAM untilNovember 22th.

With the lema Political mythologies and feminine stereotypes in the Sixties, the exhibition shows artworks and history of the 4 women founders of Estampa Popular, which brought pop art style and iconography taken from the mass media to the spanish conservative morality official dull years of that times. A challenge they faced to influence  a large number of artists, women or not,  who came after her.

  •  Ingrid Berman, eternal
The last suggestion of this week agenda is a spot to an artist whose memory keeps bravely alive. Last saturday it would have been the 100 aniversary of birth, and also decease, of Ingrid Bergman, a really different actress form the stereotype of the cold blonde hollywood star which was  in vogue in the 40's. She won two Oscars and left us eternal jewels as Casablanca to sigh deeply when we hear 'Play it again, Sam'.

Incursiones en el cosmos is a collective exhibition that explores the influence of scientific research,  space trips and science fiction in contemporary art through the work of international artist from the 50's such as Keith Haring, Susan Hiller, Mike Kelley, William Kentridge and Yves Klein.

 ARSTRONOMY bring us the obsession of Humanity to reach the unknown in more than twenty artworks: photography, videoart, painting and sculpture  are the language to show that kind of shaking hands, that meeting between science and art that will be open until Sunday, 30th in La Casa Encendida.
