PICASSO, GUERNICA'S TRAVELS
Paseo de Queiles
From 8 October to 7 November 2020
Picasso's Guernica is one of the most famous and widely reproduced, admired and reinterpreted works in the history of art, and an icon of the 20th century.
Originally created for the Paris Exhibition of 1937 as propaganda for the Second Spanish Republic, the painting was later used to support refugees from the Civil War. After the Second World War it was deposited at the MoMA and became a symbol of modern art.
Guernica has travelled far and wide: from Paris to New York, from São Paulo to Stockholm, from London to Milan, from Munich to Madrid, as well as many other cities in Europe and America. It has also become a symbol for a host of civil protests and unrest: from the Vietnam War in the 1960s to the war in Syria and the refugee crisis.
The impact of Picasso's work, and in particular Guernica, challenges the memory and visual imagery of our time and is still entirely valid today.

FROM POLE TO POLE. A JOURNEY TO AWE-INSPIRING PLACES IN NATURE WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
Paseo de Sarasate
Pamplona - Iruña
From 20 October to 10 November, 2020
Exhibition in collaboration with National Geographic and Fundación Caja Navarra (Banca Cívica)
This journey from the Arctic to Antarctica takes a look at some of the most stunning natural landscapes on Earth, many of which are considered “hotspots”: ecoregions that are significant reservoirs of biodiversity, with a large number of endemic species (species only found there), and are seriously threatened by human activity.
More than half of the world’s plant species and over one third of the mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians inhabit just 2.3 % of the Earth’s surface, and the majority live in tropical habitats that are swiftly being destroyed. The alarming loss of biological diversity is accelerating at an unprecedented rate.
According to Conservation International, there are currently 38 hotspots around the world. Although these areas once covered approximately 16 % of the Earth’s surface, today 86 % of their habitat has been destroyed.
