There is no place like home

Until June 20, let yourself be amazed by Isidro Blasco's "There is no place like home", a house made of wood that may seem unstable, mostly recycled and with some parts painted. The work functions as a gigantic sculpture that invites you to walk through it and reflect.

Isidro Blasco was born in Madrid in 1962. He is a sculptor with a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense and lives in New York. He won the Pollock Krasner Foundation grant both in 1998 and 2010, and the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Visual Arts in 2000. 

Posters of the stores in Madrid

The Sala SUR in Conde Duque offers you until June 30 an exhibition with which you can travel through the history of the stores of Madrid thanks to the magnificent collection of Carlos Velasco of old advertising posters. A beautiful journey through the life of Madrid's commerce decades ago, where you can appreciate how commerce has evolved over time.

The exhibition is a tribute to the advertisements of fifty or a hundred years ago in which, as an addition to the advertisement of the products, they added little tails to attract the attention of customers, emphasizing that the product was for sale in the place where the poster was hung or exposed.
