Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo
October 9, 2016-January 29, 2017

Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo is the first exhibition in America to present a comprehensive survey of modern art in Spain during the first half of the twentieth century. The rich and diverse art created by Spanish artists during this period is largely unknown in the US due in part to the turmoil that took place in Spain at this time. Displaying highlights from the extensive modern art collection of the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo (ACAC) with works from the Meadows Museum, this exhibition brings together more than 90 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper to demonstrate the most important aspects of modern Spanish art and shed light on the global connection between Spanish art and other international modern art movements.

 

The Festival Book for San Fernando: Celebrating Sainthood in Baroque Seville
October 9, 2016-January 29, 2017

Rarely-seen etchings by Juan de Valdés Leal (1622-1690) and other Spanish Baroque masters from the lavishly illustrated festival book Fiestas de la Santa Iglesia Metropolitana y Patriarcal de Sevilla al nuevo culto del Señor Rey San Fernando el tercero de Castilla y de León (Seville: Viuda de Nicolás Rodríguez, 1671) provide a fascinating look at the extravagant 5-day festival in 1671 Seville that was held for the cult of King Ferdinand III of Castile, or San Fernando (r. 1217-1252).
