  • Visa pour l'Image Perpignan
The International  Festival of Photojournalism of Perpignan is a classical unforgettable event which surprise us every year. An exceptional date for thousands of photography lovers  which has become  one of the biggest and most important festival of his kind in the world.
  •  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'.

ARSTRONOMY. 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.
