Over the next few days, three exhibitions that you may find interesting are 'The City in Vignetes, Miriampersand' in CentroCentro, AjedreZ. Arte de silencio. Ocho siglos de Cultura' ('Chess. Art of silence. Eight centuries of culture') in the National Library and 'Nosotros, Robots' ('We, Robots') in Espacio Fundación Telefónica. Are you going to miss it?

The City in Vignettes, Miriampersand

If you want to see Madrid from a comic point of view, the graphic designer Miriam Muñoz (Miriempersand) presents at CentroCentro a story of pigeons, one of the most iconic animals in Madrid. The exhibition is part of the " The City in Vignettes" cycle that has been offering us stories from different illustrators since 2012. If you feel like it, hurry up because you only have until 21 January.

AjedreZ. Arte de silencio. Ocho siglos de cultura (Chess. Art of silence. Eight centuries of culture)

The National Library presents a trip through the eight centuries of chess culture in Spain through 32 documents. An exhibition that begins with the writings of the Muslim era, goes through distinguished personalities such as Lucena or Ruy Lopez (the first unofficial world champion) and reaches the 20th century with the invention of the first chess machine by Leonardo Torres Quevedo. If you are fascinated by the history of chess, don't think too much about it, as 27 January will be the deadline.

Nosotros, Robots (We, Robots)

Our latest suggestion is a reflection about robots and their impact on our future at Espacio Fundación Telefónica. The exhibition, which will close on 3 February, is divided into five different sections: a tour around the history of robotics, a section about the definition of a robot, another about the relationship between robots and emotions, the relationship between robotics and science fiction and the last one about the usefulness of robots to make life easier for human beings.
