EXHIBITION GUGGENHEIM

JOANA VASCONCELOS

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents the first anthological exhibition in Spain to be devoted to Joana Vasconcelos, without doubt the most internationally reputed Portuguese artist (although born in Paris in 1971) of her generation especially after her participation in the 2005 Venice Biennale and her major exhibition at the Palace of Versailles in 2010.

SANTO TOMÁS FAIR

21st of December

This typical festivity marks the beginning of Christmas time. It is a hugely popular major farmers’ market, dating back to the mid-19th century, when most land was cultivated by farmers who passed down the lease from generation to generation and would traditionally come to the main cities to pay the landowners their annual rent. The leaseholders would take advantage of this day to sell their wares and buy other products which they couldn’t obtain in their own villages.
