Turismo Madrid

Last month of May, and with great measures that are being adapted to the different phases, to guarantee the safety of the attendees, the CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo of the Region of Madrid opened its doors, which is gradually recovering its activity. We are now invited to discover its exhibitions or take part in its visits. Below we will reveal you the details!

The town of Móstoles, is home to this art centre, which features the most contemporary art. As we mentioned before, since last May, it is possible to visit its facilities from Tuesday to Sunday, with reduced capacity from 11am to 9pm, except for the over-60s who will have an exclusive schedule, on Wednesdays from opening time until 2pm. 

With its reopening, we have the possibility of seeing two exhibitions that could already be visited before the confinement: 'Humor absurdo: Una constelación del disparate en España', and 'Francesc Ruiz. PANAL'.

The first of these, which can be seen until 4th October, is curated by Mery Cuesta, and is advised by Joaquín Reyes (humour), Luís E. Pares (cinema), Gloria G. Durán (avant-garde), Gerardo Vilches (comic and graphic humour) and Desirée de Fez (internet). 'Humor absurdo' presents us a kind of absurd humor that characterizes Spanish culture and that receives the specific name of "surrealist humor". In addition, as part of this exhibition, CA2M and Filmoteca Española have launched the online double programme 'Un bigote para el S.XXI: Transmisiones generacionales del humor absurdo y el disparate audiovisual'. 

On the other hand, 'PANAL', which can also be seen until October 4th, is curated by Anna Colin, and is the first major exhibition in a public institution dedicated to Francesc Ruiz, who represented Spain at the Venice Biennale in 2015. The show is articulated through a new large-scale production installation located in the atrium of the CA2M, and a retrospective part that brings together pieces produced in the last two decades. 

Finally, from July 1st, it will also be possible to participate in the performative tours, but only if they comply with some basic rules such as keeping a safe distance, among others. To facilitate this, it will be possible to participate in groups with a maximum of 10 people. On Wednesdays at 7pm and Sundays at 12:30pm there will be a visit to the exhibition 'Humor Absurdo: una constelación del disparate en España', and on Saturdays at 7pm to the exhibition 'Francesc Ruiz. Panal'.
