Cultural Development trip to UK
Gibraltar Cultural Services have recently returned from London, following a series of meetings and exhibitions. The Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares led the team, comprised of CEO Yvette Zarb, CEO Designate Seamus Byrne and Art Curator Gino Sanguinetti.
The team met with Elio Cruz, with the aim of organising a retrospective exhibition in the autumn of 2018 at the John Mackintosh Hall. GCS hopes to exhibit Mr Cruz artworks together with memorabilia from his drama productions such as ‘La Lola se va pa Londre’, and his musical career including his time with ‘Los Trovadores’.
In addition, the team also visited the Royal Academy of Arts, and supported local artists who were also exhibiting in the capital: Paul Cosquieri, Shane Dalmedo, Karl Ullger and Nina Danino, who are currently exhibiting in Bermondsey Art Space, as well as Christian Hook who is currently exhibiting his works at the Clarendon Art Gallery in Mayfair.
The Minister for Culture also officially opened the exhibition 'Gibraltar as seen by five artists’ in the Bermondsey Art Space. The exhibition will be open until Saturday 28th October 2017.
