"From September 2017 to February 2018, Mostra Espanha 2017 is being celebrated in Portugal. ..."

From September 2017 to February 2018, Mostra Espanha 2017 is being celebrated in Portugal. The cities of Lisboa, Oporto, Setúbal, Évora, Braga, Almada, Coimbra, Palmela, and Obidos will host a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, music, film, theatre, and lectures, centred on Spanish culture and heritage, organised by the State Secretariat for Culture in partnership with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and public and private institutions from Spain and Portugal.

This 2017 edition of the biennial Mostra Espanha will feature around 30 events, including exhibitions of paintings and photography, cultural encounters, concerts, theatre, visual arts, and film. It will officially open with the exhibition “Velázquez in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga”, part of Lisbon’s Obras Convidadas programme, including the “Sybil” by Velázquez, loaned by the Prado Museum until 14 January 2018.

Varied programme

Photography by Miguel Galano, Juan Manuel Castro, and the Fundación Foto Colectania will be on show in some of the scheduled exhibitions. In theatre, there will be productions by Teatro Guirigai (“Un encuentro con Miguel Hernández”), Fundición Producciones (“La otra mano de Cervantes”) and the Compañía del Conde de Torrefiel (“La posibilidad que desaparece frente al paisaje”). The musical programme will include performances by David Carmona, Xabier Díaz, Fetén Fetén, EntreQuatre, La Bejazz, and others.

Mostra Espanha 2017 also includes the Cine Fiesta film cycle, showing the best of current Spanish cinema, with screenings of different genres, from comedy and mystery to animation. The seven selected films this year are: “Contratiempo” by Oriol Paulo, “El hombre de las mil caras” by Alberto Rodríguez, “Que Dios nos perdone” by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, “El guardián invisible” by Fernando González Molina, “El Bar” by Alex de la Iglesia, “Villaviciosa de al lado” by Nacho G. Velilla, “La reina de España” by Fernando Trueba, and “Ozzy” by Alberto Rodríguez and Nacho La Casa.

Bilateral collaboration

Mostra Espanha is the result of an initiative launched in 2009 by the Spanish Ministry of Culture to offer the Portuguese public, on a two-yearly basis, an extensive repertoire of activities representing Spanish culture, heritage, and cultural industries, showing their creativity and energy, with a particular emphasis on promoting cultural dialogue and participative forums between the two countries.

For the organisation of Mostra Espanha 2017, the Spanish State Secretariat for Culture, through the Department for the Promotion of Culture Abroad and Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), has had the support of the Portuguese government through the Ministry of Culture; the collaboration of the City Councils of Lisbon, Oporto, Setúbal and Braga, the Spanish Embassy, the Cervantes Institute in Lisbon, the José Saramago Foundation, and other public and private institutions in both countries.
