The Maspalomas Cultural Centre in San Bartolomé de Tirajana will open this Monday, 10th April, the exhibition entitled ‘An Island of Stories. An Anthology to Travel through Gran Canaria’.
According to the Gran Canaria Island Council, this is an exhibition that displays a large part of the materials that were used in the publication of the same title published two years ago by the Department of Culture, with the participation of a dozen writers from the island, the photographer Nacho González, the illustrator Augusto Vives and the dancer Natalia Medina.
The exhibition, which can be visited until 5 May from Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 21.00, brings together the photographs taken by Nacho González and the illustrations by Augusto Vives for this edition, which was formulated as an intimate yet collective journey around Gran Canaria, with the participation of ten authors from different generations and aesthetic orientations, who set out to tell the island from a different perspective.
Thus, the exhibition is made up of ten photographs and ten illustrations that are the spiritual map (or one of the possible spiritual maps) of this island.
The exhibition, which began its journey at the headquarters of the Island Library in the capital of Gran Canaria, plans to continue its itinerant exhibition in other cultural spaces in Gran Canaria, after having already been shown in Santa Brígida, San Mateo, Santa Lucía de Tirajana and Moya, among others.
