Schedule for the weekend of 23rd June: cultural recommendations

This weekend is the final weekend of the ‘Photobook Phenomenon’ exhibition at the Foto Colectania Foundation , which focuses on contemporary visual culture through the role of the photobook and printed photographs, with examples from different eras throughout history, from Ródchencko, William Klein and Robert Frank to work by Laia Abril and Vivian Sassen. You can visit this exhibition until 25th June.

In Valencia, tomorrow (Saturday) is the first day of the music festival Serenates 2017, with music composed and played mainly by Valencian musicians. The festival will take place at the Cloister of the historical building of the University of Valencia.

In Valencia you can also visit the exhibition ‘Stone guardians’, which stops in Villajoyosa, organised by MARQ. This exhibition pays homage to the more than 230 castles and fortifications located in the province of Alicante.

Lastly, the Joan Miró Foundation is holding a new installation at Espai 13 with artist Adrià Julià and ‘Hot Iron’, a project which uses a photographic archive of Catalan Romanesque churches which has not been made public until now and which was prepared by Ramon Julià Alemany, who catalogued 556 churches between the 1950s and the 1990s. This exhibition shows the effects of economic relations involving the import and export of cultural artefacts on collective thinking.
