Summer in Spain: Must-See Exhibitions


Welcome back lifestyle readers!

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer break wherever around the world you might be. In case you happen to pass by Madrid during these summer months, and you have a little extra time between moving your boxes from one apartment to another, after brunch or even before going bar hopping we suggest going to an exhibition. An exhibition is the perfect activity for the summer as you are able to explore new areas of Madrid as well as learn more about cultures and art from around the world! Here are a variety of exhibitions we highly recommend you go see around the city!

Joanie Lemercier, Paisajes de luz

For sure you must have heard of, if not been to, Ikono, the museum where you can experience and be part of the exhibition. Joanie Lemercier is an artist born in 1982 who was one of the first experimenting this technique. His art pieces use technology to make the spectator reflect on current issues such as climate change through sensory experiences. Here you will find installations focused on distortions, movements, illusions, 3D and digital effects for an exhibition that involves all the five senses. 

When: Until the 25th of July

Location: Espacio Fundación Telefónica

Address: Calle del Fuencarral, 3

Price: Free if you reserve before on this website

Opening hours: Tuesday-Sunday: 12:00-20:00, Monday closed

¿Pintas o Dibujas? Un paseo por el arte de la mano del cómic

This exposition shows the works of eleven of the most famous spanish comic artists. If you are looking for something different go and check it out!
