Fashion, design and the urban environment are so inextricably bound together they eventually merge to deliver a common message. The evolution of artistic impulses, and their creators and promoters are capable of generating changes that permeate society in many different areas, from the most sublime to the everyday.

Eloy Martínez de la Pera Celada, a European Union diplomat, cultural manager and curator of art and fashion exhibitions, will explore this phenomenon. His most recent art exhibition projects include Sorolla and Fashion, at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza; curating Spain's participation in the International Arts and Crafts Biennial in Paris; and the exhibition Balenciaga and Spanish Painting, also for the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza. In addition to participating in the conceptualisation and development of art projects for leading museums in Spain, he has also played key roles within the art world. These include head of the ARCO Prize for Artistic Creation, art curator for Absolut, artistic advisor and ambassador for Chanel, as well as serving on the Board of Trustees of the Cristóbal Balenciaga Foundation.

Martínez de la Pera will be in conversation with Sofía Barroso. She has organised ARCO's collectors' programme since its creation, was a member of the board of directors of the Friends of ARCO (2000-2006), and is currently a member of the board of trustees of both the Jakober Foundation and the Zuloaga Foundation. Their discussion will be moderated by Joaquín López-Sáez, director of COPE Andalucía and the COPE Sevilla radio station.

At 18:00 there will be a reception, the event will start afterwards
