New project of the American Space Madrid with the Network of Public Libraries of the Madrid City Council: American Cultural Bites: US Museum Circuit. A Virtual Tour of the US, Its Art Museums and Some Important Works of Art.
This is a series of six meetings in English to analyze and discuss works of art by North American artists housed in museums in the United States. In this way, each month the participants will be able to get to know different museums, artists and representative works of American art in an entertaining and participatory way.
This activity will be moderated by Jennifer Bird, art expert and professor of the American Cultural Studies (ACS) courses at the International Institute.
Registration will be made by contacting directly the public library where the session is held: Buenavista, Vargas Llosa, Conde Duque, Eugenio Trías, Iván de Vargas and Dámaso Alonso.
For the month of January we will start at the Buenavista Library with the "Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum" in Boston (MA) and two works by John Singer Sargent exhibited there: The mess (1882) and Portrait of Isabella Stewart Gardner (1888).
