America as Theatre of Spanish Modernity: Interdisciplinary Colloquium

A group of specialists examine the close relationship that some key figures of Spanish culture have had with the United States and México, particularly in the field of architecture and the plastic arts. The exploits of Rafael Guastavino (Valencia 1842), Antoni Gaudí (Reus 1852), Joan Miró (Barcelona 1893), and Félix Candela (Madrid 1910) will be explored in this one-day symposium. Their transatlantic involvement will exert significant influence on American cultural texture and on some relevant figures of the US art scene, as is the case of dealer and gallery owner Julian Levy (1906).

Participants: Juan José Lahuerta, Jordana Mendelson, María González Pendas, Carlos Ramos, and organizers.
