Easterly Winds opens in Cadiz




The Minister for Culture, The Hon. Steven Linares MP, yesterday opened an exhibition at the ‘Palacio de la Diputación Provincial de Cadiz’, featuring 17 Gibraltarian artists. The platform is a cultural art exchange between HM Government of Gibraltar and Diputación de Cadiz.

The project, ‘Easterly Winds’, is led and curated by Magda Bellotti with Seamus Byrne, CEO at Gibraltar Cultural Services overseeing the exchange on behalf of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar. The Diputacion was represented by its Vice President Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix and its Cultural Delegate Salvador Puerto Aguilar.

The Minister for Culture, The Hon. Steven Linares MP, said:

‘Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar is delighted to support ‘Easterly Winds’ as a cultural exchange between Gibraltar and Cádiz. Gibraltar will continue to have its doors open to Spain and to the rest of the World, for any exchange, as Gibraltar always moves forward. I have no doubt this cultural exchange will encourage new opportunities and future collaborations between the two countries whether educational, cultural, sport, tourism, or leisure for that matter. This will allow us to open new doors for all our citizens.’

The second phase of the project will see artists from Cádiz coming to Gibraltar, with the opportunity to exhibit their works. It will take place at the Gustavo Bacarisas Gallery during March 2019.
