Hotel One Shot 23 - sophisticated and comfy

This has been my last discovery: hotel One Shot 23 at calle Prado 23. I was wandering around calle Prado - a street I highly recommend, full of surprises - and without knowing I stepped into a hiper-cosmopolitan space that happened to be the reception of a hotel: One Shot 23. Brand new! En español abajo sigue leyendo.

Photography exhibition by Imogen Cunningham at Fundación Mapfre

Imogen Cunningham at Mapfre

 In one of these past grey weekends, I took my car and went to Sala Azca belonging to Fundación Mapfre. Fundación Mapfre stands in Madrid cultural scene with two big locations, one closer to the art triangle (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen) and the other one close to the Bernabeu Stadium, I’ve always found that it’s atypical place for exhibitions but the visit  to Imogen Cunningham Photo Exhibition was worth it.

Museo Lázaro Galdiano - Leandro Navarro's art collection

The choice of renown museums in Madrid is well known (Museo del Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza) but we cannot forget smaller possibilities as interesting as the big ones an much easier to visit. One of those places is a lovely building, former residence of Mr Lázaro Galdiano in Serrano Street the Lázaro Galdiano Museum. A very recommendable visit to make while shopping in the area and after or before some tapas at Jose Luis Bar or Hevia Bar.

Gervasio Sánchez Photo Exibition

Today's cultural activity has been intense and heartbreaking... I had heard about the transformation of the Lavapies old tobacco factory into a new self managed cultural space La Tabacalera and decided to visit it knowing it was showing Gervasio Sánchez (Photography National Award) photography work.
I had seen a photo of a broken window of car with girls inside and wanted to know more the artist.

Contemporary Art Center - El Matadero

El Matadero is an amazing space worth the visit. Conceived in the premises of ancient Madrid slaughterhouse, this Contemporary Art Center aims to be the city’s biggest centre for contemporary creation and a leading international space dedicated to present-day creation.
A changing space with a focus on drama, visual arts, design, music, dance, architecture, urbanism, landscapism, fashion, literature, and cinema.  

Given its location, Matadero Madrid extends the Recoletos-Prado cultural axis to Legazpi Square, moving the centre of Madrid further out towards the vicinity of the River Manzanares. 

Program of activities is intense; from cinema to, exhibitions, performances, dance, music, public installations, workshops... You can even organize you own private event in different size spaces. You can find monthly program here

If weather is nice, I suggest going for the day and alternate cultural visits with a nice walk through its huge central square plus a tasty lunch at its theatre cafe.

Arab Spring - Revolution Graffiti

exhibition at Casa Arabe 
Alcalá 62

Something different to do far from traditional cultural circuits. Interesting exhibition at Casa Arabe of Madrid "Pintadas de la Revolución". It gathers more than a hundred images taken on the streets of different cities of Arab countries during revolutionary processes. Popular creative protest expression through the use of public spaces. Only for Syria there is an empty panel.

Place: Casa Árabe’s exhibition rooms in Madrid (c/ Alcalá, 62).
From December to March 2012

Artist - Jorge Fin - Gurriaran Art Gallery

Jorge Fin - "volando voy" 
c/Santo Tome 6

A cloud painter or a painter of clouds? Exhibition by Jorge Fin at the art gallery “Gurriaran” c/ Santo Tome 6, under the global name of “Sin Miedo” – Without Fear-. I highly recommend this painter specialized in stunning skies. His paintings are an open window to a lyric world of relaxing blue and white. Everything fits.
