For its part, the Espacio 5.1 (IFEMA - Feria de Madrid), shows until 10 January 2021, more than 1,000 pieces that give a good account of the exuberant artistic heritage of ancient Egypt. 

Del todo imposible
With this exhibition, the Sala de Arte Joven invites us to meditate on the possibility that this gallery has the capacity to remember and collect the stories that it has hosted. The exhibition is part of the winning projects of the 11th edition of the call 'Se busca comisario', which bets on new curatorial models. 

Juan Valbuena. Donde doblan los mapas
The Sala Canal Isabel II will be hosting this exhibition, which brings together the five most personal projects of the Madrid-based photographer Juan Valbuena, until 15 November.

This is a unique opportunity to look at his life and literary universe, thanks to more than 250 works from institutions such as the Fundación Miguel Delibes, the Real Academia Española, El Norte de Castilla, the Fundación Juan March and the Biblioteca Nacional itself.

Bill Viola. Espejos de lo invisible, en Madrid

Alvaro Urbano. El despertar
La Casa Encendida, and also until January 10, 2021, surprises with this immersive installation composed of fragments that make up a building, now abandoned, to recreate forgotten stories.
