Art in Latin American and Iberia

1 Jan 2019

February 13th to April 17th 

This Spring, @uccsplas invites the Cork community to a series of talks on a wide range of artists from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. The speakers will be members of our department who specialise in the many different cultures spread across the Spanish-speaking and Lusophone worlds.

 

The talks will take place every Wednesday from 18:30 to 19:30 – Feb 13th to April 17th – at the Kino in Washington street, Cork. You can find the programme below, including some very well-known figures but also artists who have not enjoyed as much visibility in the past. Entrance is free and coffee and beverages can be purchased at the venue.

 

You can follow us and confirm your attendance to the event through our facebook page.
