Exhibition by Clara Carvajal

The Displaced Hive
The Displaced Hive is a retablo of 25 pieces carved in wood and printed on paper, begun by Clara Carvajal during a residency in Weimar, Germany, in 2021. It addresses the aspirational needs of humans in their search for new goals and their massification, presenting three forms of this phenomenon: mass tourism of mountaineers on Mount Everest, the new space race among private companies owned by magnates, and waves of immigrants risking their lives to reach highly desired yet inaccessible borders. Her retablo of narrative scenes connects with traditional ways of human escape through religion and mythological iconography. Clara Carvajal (1970), a native of Madrid, holds a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid and Blake College and Heatherley School of Art in London. She is a multi-award-winning artist with numerous national and international exhibitions.

Free admission.

The exhibition opens on Thursday, July 4th at 12:00 PM and will be open until September 15th at the Chapel of the Esteban Vicente Museum.

Hours: Tuesday to Friday: 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM- Saturday: 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM- Sunday: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM- Monday: closed

Exhibition by Leticia Díaz de la Morena

Up Close, No One is Normal
Up Close, No One is Normal. Not even the artists and models who are often expected to possess a perfection they, like everyone else, do not have. Leticia Díaz de la Morena, with her photographic exhibition "Up Close, No One is Normal," invites viewers to look into the eyes, the skin, and the interior of her subjects. Also into their faces, where we will recognize personalities such as Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Dani Martín, Blanca Suárez, Vigo Mortensen, Natalia de Molina, and Leonor Watling.

From a young age, Leticia Díaz de la Morena was drawn to drawing and painting. When she received her first camera, she discovered she could paint using nothing but light, without brushes or pencils, realizing that her place was behind the camera, capturing what happened on the other side of the lens. Years later, she completed a professional degree in Imaging, leading her to internships at the sets of Editorial Hachette Filipacchi (now Hearst), where she seized an opportunity to work as an assistant to Spanish photographers like Diego Lafuente, Joaquín Calle, and Bernardo Doral. As a freelance photographer, her lens has captured and immortalized figures such as Dani Martín, Blanca Suárez, and Vigo Mortensen, among others. Over her 15-year career, her professionalism and unique approach to photography have earned her the trust of brands like Samsung, Rochas, H&M, Guerlain, and Primark. She has also illustrated the covers of major Spanish magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Telva, Elle, and Nylon, among others.

Free admission.
