During their visit to the African country, Felipe VI and Lady Letizia kicked off the exhibition of two collections by Spanish genius Joan Miró in an initiative organized by FUNIBER, UNEATLANTICO, and UNIC together with other Angolan and Spanish institutions.
Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain inaugurated an exhibition of Joan Miró’s collections “El cántico del sol” and “Las maravillas acrósticas” at the Economic Bank of Luanda, Angola. The exhibition featured dozens of original works by the Spanish artist belonging to the Cultural Work of the Iberoamerican University Foundation (FUNIBER).
His Majesty Felipe and Lady Letizia toured the exhibition accompanied by curator Federico Fernández, director of the Cultural Work and dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of the European University of the Atlantic of Santander (UNEATLANTICO). Fernández spoke at length with the monarchs about the Catalan’s career trajectory and illustrated the immortal artist’s works of art on display. Also present at the exhibition’s inauguration was the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albares.
Together with the Foundation, the exhibition was organized by UNEATLANTICO and the Universidade Internacional do Cuanza (UNIC), an Angolan institution sponsored by FUNIBER and the aforementioned Spanish University. Other organizations, such as the Angolan Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Spanish Embassy in Angola, and Casa de África, also participated. The collections will remain accessible for public viewing for two months.
