Schedule for the weekend of 21 July: music, art and exhibitions

For this weekend we recommend two cultural plans in Alicante, three concerts at the ‘Geografia’ music festival at the Auditorio de la Diputación de Alicante (ADDA), this Friday, 21st July, 12 22h with the group of vocalists ‘The Manhattan Transfer’; Saturday 22nd at 22h with Fred Hersch Trio; and Sunday 23rd at 22h ‘Memoria de los sentidos’ con Vicente Amigo. The second cultural proposal is the A Quemarropa, Residences, this Friday 21st at 19h Noche en Blanco ‘Residents go home’, inauguration of the closing exhibition of the Residences and at 20h Jam Session with Andrés García Sánchez at Vogue Kiki Ball.


This Friday marks the close of the music cycle ‘Las piedras cantan’ at the Patio de Escuelas Mayores de la Fachada Rica, University of Salamanca, with a recital by Duette jazz, a duo comprised of the pianist Pablo Ruiz and the voice of Sheila Blanco.

Lastly, we propose three plans in Barcelona:

The Bachcelona music festival which carries the music by the German genius to different locations in the city. For example, this Friday at 16h and 18h ‘Bach para niños’ at the Recinte Modernista in Sant Pau, a family show to discover Bach through well recognised performers; and Saturday at 19h and 20h ‘Bach en movimiento’ at Fábrica Moritz, contemporary dance with music by Bach; ‘Bachmosferes’ at the Patio del Museo Marès, a gathering of artists and the public, together with a wine tasting session.

Fundación Joan Miró is hosting the last exhibition of ‘One Foot Out. Exhibitions and diasporas’ at Espai 13, with Fruit Belt by Martín Llavaneras, an incursion into the divisory margins between the human species and our environment. Apart from the techniques designed to control the ripening of the fruit, the artist shows a conceptual and sculptural view of the vital cycles of commodities and the relationships we have with them.

– exhibition is ‘Weegee by Weegee’, which includes more than 100 famous photographs by the famous chronicler of 30’s and 40’s New York. It can be visited at the headquarters of Fundación Foto Colectania in Barcelona.
